Double Crochets: Purse Handle or Necklace

A twisted cord of double crochets makes a great purse handle. 

It can also be made in silk or linen to create a lovely necklace.

Alchemy’s Silken Straw

After completing the pattern for the Hexapuff Lap Quilt, I returned to making necklaces from Alchemy’s Silken Straw. This 100% silk ribbon is wonderful stuff.  It’s fun to play with, and finished products can be softened by hover steaming or soaking in cool water.

A friend ordered two necklaces from me.  Here they are completed. I need to write a necklace pattern to post on Ravelry.
