Hello Fellow Crocheter:
I’m generally not a very delicate person, but every once in a while I decide to work on something a little dainty. This necklace is lacy and delicate yet easy to make. It uses crochet thread to keep it light. It’s also versatile, so you can make it in any color and add any pendant to express yourself however you’d like. It’s also a quick project, so it’s perfect if you have several people on your gift list.
