As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been playing around a lot recently, trying things out. I’ve been doing a lot of crochet with thinner thread – from size 12 DMC perle to size 80, which I usually use for tatting. Generally, I’ve been using a .75 hook, which seems to work well for both thread sizes.
I spotted a great adaptation of a bookmark pattern on Ravelry. The bookmark itself is really nice, but I spotted someone had made it into a necklace, which works really well. Momocat – the maker of the necklace – graciously said I could try out her idea myself (only polite to ask!), and so I did, using a DMC Perle size 12.
As the thread is so small, I decided to make a charm which hangs off a chain, rather than a complete necklace – and I think it came out quite nicely…
(These photos are snapped with my ever reluctant camera – an over head light and TWO desklamps, so forgive the colour variations.)
I made a chain with a loop at the end, and crocheted a simple disk to pull through as a closure – seemed to work quite nicely…
I’ve made a couple more too – but they’ve not photographed well, so you’ll have to take my word for it. They’re actually quite addictive.

Thank you! It’s very easy (if you can crochet – which you can!) – try it 🙂
