Introduction: Crochet Olympic Rings Charm/Pendant

About: Being featured means we think you are awesome.

I love Olympic Games and their symbols, the Olympic Rings. In 2004 I bought an Italian charm bracelet with Olympic and Greek flags, but I always wanted a pendant. When I saw Lindarose's Crochet Ring Coasters, I thought I could finally do the pendant myself!

Please, vote for me, if you like it! :)

Step 1: Materials

What you'll need:

  • 5 rings
  • crochet
  • scrap of cotton thread (blue, yellow, black, green and red)
  • yarn needle
  • 2 little rings and chain (optional)

Because I didn't have rings that were good for this work, I did them myself using the method I've described in my DIY rings 'ible.

Step 2:

As for the Lindarose's coaster, start with a slip stitch and crochet single stitch all around the ring. Finish with a slip stitch.

Crochet all the 5 rings.

Step 3:

Sew the rings together on the back, keeping in mind the place the colours have in the Olympic flag.

I sewed with the same thread I used for the crochet work, but maybe it could be better if you do it with normal cotton thread for sewing.

Step 4: Finish!

Add to little rings in the upper sc of blue and red rings. This way you can link a chain to do a pendant. If you put only one ring, you can use it as a keychain. The keyring could be linked directly to one of the rings :)

Edit: I've decided to take off the rings and put a piece of black thread in the back of the rings, so the necklace is finished without a chain.

Enjoy!
