Crochet This Pretty Rose Pendant!

Crochet An Amazingly Beautiful Rose Pendant For Someone Special - Or For Yourself!

Crochet an itty-bitty rose, measuring just over an inch! My necklace is crocheted in vintage heavy sewing weight thread petals and two strands of embroidery floss for the leaves, using a size 10 hook. You can also crochet the whole rose with two strands of embroidery floss and a size 10 hook.

Too tiny for you? Try making it in regular size 10 thread with a size 8 hook. (Example shown at right). For an even bigger rose necklace, work it up in size 3 crochet thread with a size C hook. Larger yet? Make it in sport weight yarn with a size E or F hook!

I've included a tutorial on how to attach a common jewelry finding, the spring ring, to make it a "real" pendant that you can wear with the chain of your choice, or a simple silk cord.

Can you just imagine the possibilities with color? You could make a rose pendant to match every outfit if you wanted! Whatever you decide, have fun with it!

The Jewelry Supplies You'll Need On Amazon - You Can Get Them Right Here!

What You Will Need

Very small amount of crochet threads in desired colors for Rose and Leaves, size 30

Crochet hook size 12 or preferred size

This example was crocheted with vintage sewing thread for the rose, one strand of embroidery floss for the leaves, and a size 12 hook.

OPTIONAL

Two spring ring jewelry findings (find them anywhere jewelry making supplies are sold). The ones used in my example are sterling silver. They are also available in rose gold plated, 18kt gold plated, etc.

Two pairs of jewelry pliers (I use my round nose pliers, you may prefer the flat ones)

A Word About Thread Selection...

It doesn't matter with this pattern what size of thread you use - or yarn, for that matter - as long as all colors are of similar thickness and weight.

Imagine crocheting this in a dear one's favorite rose color and presenting it in a jewelry box attached to a pretty chain! Wouldn't they be surprised!

Important Stuff...

Make sure that you use findings (jewelry parts) that won't tarnish and stain your crochet thread. (Your necklace will touch the skin and pick up moisture). Real gold plated or sterling findings are surprisingly inexpensive at your local craft store.

Get The Thread Hooks I Use On Amazon! - I Promise You'll Love These Hooks!

If you thought you couldn't crochet with tiny hooks like size 10/12/14, maybe the problem is the hook you've tried. The Soft Touch hooks have a wonderful ergonomic handle that eliminates hand fatigue. You can crochet with a handle the size you're used to using, but with a tiny hook. It makes all the difference!
