Chokers have been hot this year and I thought one way to reinvent this classic trend was to make a crochet choker. I used to have dozens of these things when I was little and I was ecstatic when I realized they were coming back in style.
I think they are the perfect addition to any outfit. They add definition and attention to a great, youthful area- your neck. My crochet choker is honestly my favorite statement piece.
Chokers are hot and if you want to have one that not everyone does, try making a crochet choker with this pattern! Black is the most popular color, and easiest to style, but you can make yours whatever color you like. Not to mention, adding a small charm is a cute way to accent it.
Whatever way you decide to make yours, this crochet patter will get you started! And if you're having trouble pairing your choker with an outfit, here is a quick style guide/inspiration.
String a lobster clasp followed by a jump ring onto your working yarn before you begin crocheting. If you're having trouble, check out my tutorial for crocheting with beads. It works the same with jewelry pieces.
Row 1: In 2nd ch from hook, sc across, turn (71)
Row 2: Ch 2 working the jump ring up and into your 2nd ch, dc in same st, sk 1 st, *dc ch 1 dc in next st, sk 2 st,* repeat from * to * until you reach the last 3 st, dc ch 1 dc, sk 1 st, 2 dc in same st, working the lobster clasp up and into your 2nd dc, turn
Row 3: Ch 1, sc across (71)
Cut tail and weave in ends.
From here, cut a length of jewelry chain, anywhere from 2-3 inches, and use the jewelry tool to thatch it to the jump ring on one end of the choker.
