Supplies Simply Easy Crochet Necklace @OombawkaDesign

1 – 1″ square bead frame (or square jump ring, or purse supply)
1  – 11 x 12 mm wood pony bead
Aunt Lydia’s Fashion Crochet Cotton Thread, Size 3
Hook: 2.25 mm (B)

I purchased my square ring from an online shop and received 50 for less than 10 dollars – you can find them on Etsy, or even in your local craft store in the bead section, or purse supply section.

If you cannot find the same size you can always substitute for a larger, or smaller bead frame – or even a different shape! I’ve included some links at the bottom of the post to some options I found online but you will likely be able to find them locally – or in bulk if you want to make a few necklaces in an online shop such as SewingSupplies. They are slightly different from what I used but will work in a pinch 🙂

Simply Easy Crochet Necklace @OombawkaDesign

This necklace is so easy to make!

The ‘chain’ is 28″ long from the edge of the square bead frame. You can easily change this to make it longer, or shorter – it is totally customizable. If you want to add a few more beads for colour just slip them on as well following the tutorial I have included below the instructions.

You begin by working around the square bead frame.

1. Join your crochet thread with a sc to the square bead frame and work 46 sc around the frame. If you can still see the frame between the stitches, add more sc until the frame is completely covered.

2. Slide your stitches to make your last st align with one of the four corners. Sl st to the first sc worked but do not finish off.

3. Chain 70 and sl st to the next sc on the frame (beside the one you joined to before you began the ch 70).

4. Finish off and weave in ends.

5. Pick one of the pony beads and slip it over the chain and slide it down to the corner of the square bead frame. Here is a little tutorial to help explain this.

You can change the length of the chain to make it longer, or shorter. You can change the shape and size of the square bead frame – there are circles available, ovals, triangles, stars, hearts…lots of options…

These make great gifts too!

Quick to work up (less than 15 minutes!) and fairly inexpensive to make.

They would make great beginner projects too – if you want to teach your friend to crochet – or even your child or your students – with a finished product which is easily achievable and can be worn or given as a gift!

Here are some options on Amazon:

Or if you would like a different shape, here is a diamond I think would work really well too!

  2. Hi Carol, This necklace doesn’t have a clasp 🙂 It actually fits right over your head. Have fun at the Family Reunion! Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  3. I love this necklace and plan to make a few for our family reunion silent auction! I’ve never made jewelry, so am wondering what I should use as a clasp? Thanks for your reply!

  4. Like this piece. It is a clean looking piece of jewelry, not bulky like so many other patterns that I’ve seen.

  5. Les prix des produits indiqués sur le site s’entendent en euros
    TTC hors participation aux frais d’envoi dont le montant est demandé
    au client en supplément du prix des produits.

  6. These are great! I love the concept of crocheting around a shape, and now I’m imagining all the different options for shapes and bead styles. I want to make a whole bunch of ’em! 🙂

    Cut them to equal sizes then glue them to one of the ends of the tank.
    To break into such a safe, if a thief knows where the bolts
    are located on the door, he just has to drill through and hammer on the bolts to make them recede.

  8. As a homeowner, you will have maintenance and other related costs to keep
    your drain system running efficiently. Their payloads are spread out
    over the entire dump body in order to maintain the weight requirements of
    the federal bridge laws. In fact, there would be plenty of surplus water to
    irrigate the garden or sell to other consumers.

  9. Good info. Lucky me I ran across your site by chance (stumbleupon).

    I’ve book marked it for later!

  10. Thank you 🙂 I actually have some more easy bracelet patterns up this week. One today and a few over the next few days. Hope you like one of them! Rhondda

  11. Thanks, Rhondda, I love doing your patterns, they’re very eady to follow! Bring them in! More, more, more! ☺

  12. Hi Linda, I found jump rings of different sizes and shapes available on Etsy (I tend to shop there quite frequently). In the post I have linked to a couple sources on amazon where you can find them available too – sometimes Hardware Stores (our local TSC) has different shapes and sizes of metal rings available too which would also work if they were not too heavy – some key chain rings will work and if you have a craft store like Michael’s you can find some jump rings there as well in varying sizes. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  13. Where did you find the jump ring? I have checked on google and cannot find any. Please help

  14. Hi Pat, I personally do not sell beads or bead frames. I have included some links from Amazon for Bead Frames and I think you can find them on Etsy too! Hope this helps, Rhondda

  15. Can I purchase beads and squares, etc. from you? If so, how do I find it?

  16. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS IDEA!!! SO EXCITED TO GET STARTED!!!! THANK YOU!

  17. Hi Tamara! What a fantastic idea 🙂 You could make tons of shapes with pipe cleaner !! Have a lovely weekend, Rhondda

  18. This is a lovely pattern idea. I have just made a necklace as a gift for a 10 year old. I used a pipe cleaner for the frame and a chunky yarn. It looks great. Thank you for providing the inspiration!

  19. Hi Suzan – you could add a some extra chain sts to the bottom of the square bead frame (sl st to the frame, then chain a certain number of sts, slide the beads on and sl st back to the frame before continuting around the frame with sc). The frame itself is solid so you would need to thread the beads on the thread first and then slide them in place before continuing to sc around the frame.

    Hope this makes sense!
