This fall, yarn isn’t just for scarves. With your pile of scrap yarn or a pack of Lion Brand Bon Bons, a beautiful Bohemian Twist necklace is just a few steps away. Make one for yourself & some as gifts!
Don’t let the crochet hook scare you! For this project you will need to learn how to do a simple crochet chain stitch, making the Bohemian Twist necklace the perfect beginner crochet project (without looking like a beginner crochet project).
A collection of yarn from your scrap pile or a pack of Lion Brand Yarn Bon Bon Metallic yarn in “Party”
Crochet Hook (size G)
12″ jewelry chain
2 jump rings
2 large fold over crimps
Once you’ve picked out the color combination for your necklace, chain stitch 90 to create a loose chain strand around 18″ long. Create a total of 12 chain strands of the same length, dividing them up between the colors you’ve chosen. I crocheted 5 of the main color, 4 of the secondary color, 2 of the tertiary color and 1 of the accent color.
Tie the strands together at the top of the chains and create a twist braid using 6 strands in each hand. To twist braid, twist each 6 strand segment to the left, then cross segments left over right. Tie off at end. Dab a bit of glue on the knots at each end to secure. (Watch a video tutorial for the twist braid HERE)
Twist excess yarn together and fold back towards necklace before using your fold over crimp to secure around all the yarn. Trim off extra yarn.
Attach jump rings and 5″ of chain to each fold over crimp. Attach clasp to finish.
