Ladder yarn is a fun yet somewhat difficult yarn to work with, but you can crochet a simple long chain to create a beautiful necklace. Ladder yarn looks just like it sounds -- like a ladder. It's made in numerous brilliant solid colors and varied color combinations, and it often has a shimmer accent to it.

Things You'll Need

  • Ladder yarn

  • Crochet hook, your preference

Step 1

To create a very easy crocheted necklace from ladder yarn, first create a slip knot and be sure to leave a long tail on your knot to use later.

Step 2

Chain for several yards. The more yards you chain, the thicker your necklace will be. Fasten off, and once again leave a long tail.

Step 3

Find something to wrap your chain around that will give you the approximate length of the necklace you want, such as an old binder, cardboard, or the steady arms of a friend. Tie the ends together.

Tip

Be sure to not pull the yarn tightly while wrapping. It will be stretchy, so make sure to wrap it loosely.
