SCRAP BUTTON NECKLACE

Copyright Susan M. Whitlock

MATERIALS: Scraps of crochet thread size 10 in different colors. No. 10 steel crochet hook. Large amount of buttons, charms and bells in different sizes, shapes and colors that you have saved from old cloths or jewelry. NOTE: As you work tie a new piece of scrap crochet thread on to the last one leaving the strings together as part of the necklace. You can also make the necklace using just one color of crochet thread.

 

RND 1: Leaving a long string at the first, **Ch 2, sl st through hole in one or two buttons, charms or bells; thread over and draw loop through the button, thread over and draw through all the loops on the hook, continue from ** until you have an assortment of about 100 buttons (or until you have the length necklace you want). Join to the first ch with a sl st, break off and leave a long string to tie to the beginning string. Make bracelets and earrings in the same manner, just smaller. Easy enough for beginners.
