From Marc Jacobs to Oscar de la Renta, granny chic is ruling the runway for fall, with sweet crochets and chunky knits paired with luxe metal accents. Maybe that’s why we’ve seen so many cool yarn and chain necklaces around lately! Kollabora tackles this totally on the chain look with a super simple project you can make using any chain and yarn color combo that suits your style.

If you’re not familiar with crochet techniques, check out all the different stitch tutorials in our knitting section. For this project we used Milla Mia yarn, made from 100% extra fine Merino wool. Gorgeous and super-soft, it's perfect for everything from kid’s knits and baby blankets, to grownup cloths and jewelry too—‘cause you gotta baby yourself sometimes!

Step 1: Supplies

To make this project you need yarn (sport weight yarn is good and easy to crochet), a crochet hook (in this one the size was E-4), chunky chain, two jump rings and a large clasp. Measure the chain before you start crocheting.
<p>munrabc: I haven't made this yet, but it seems you need to decrease. it says in the 3rd row to dc every other stitch and chain between, maybe don't chain between them? Or maybe when you are doing the 2nd row of singles, skip after every 3, you want it to be pulling up (like a curve). Sometimes it's just trial and error. Hope this helps!</p>
<p>I was very excited to try this project but am running into an issue that I need some help with. My necklace looks nothing like the one on the model as far as &quot;shape&quot;. It is very &quot;stiff&quot; and will not curve upwards towards the neckline no matter how much I try to shape it, in other words, its &quot;bending&quot; in the wrong direction. I have taken it apart and made it twice, using different types of yarn. What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions much appreciated! My necklace doesn't look the same as the pattern so I am obviously doing something wrong! Thanks, Connie</p>
<p>Maybe you should make less SC through the chain, like 2 or even 1. I think it is better to have it tighter so you can stretch it (and block it that way), in stead of having too much fabric left.</p><p>You can also try decreasing when you notice that you'll get too much fabric. </p><p>I haven't tried it, so won't know if this works, but I hope it does! Love the colour of your yarn and it would make such a nice necklace!</p>
<p>Love this!!</p>
