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
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.
Chain for several yards. The more yards you chain, the thicker your necklace will be. Fasten off, and once again leave a long tail.
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.
Be sure to not pull the yarn tightly while wrapping. It will be stretchy, so make sure to wrap it loosely.
Wrap each tail in opposite directions around the bundle of yarn several times.
Knot them together and snip the ends. The necklace complete! Try adding beads and other charms for an even more glamorous effect.
