T-Shirt Yarn Necklace
by Vera Vandenbosch Follow

Make a tassel necklace with key chain clips and recycled T-shirt yarn.
This project is from my upcoming book Scraps - Stylish Stash Fabric Crafts to Stitch (The Taunton Press, 2015).



  • Start out with a simple crochet chain of eight stitches, make sure there is a length of at least 10” at the end of the chain.

  • Now, keep making the crochet chain, but include the loop of a keychain clip in each stitch.

  • Do this for the next twenty-four stitches. Finally, crochet eight more chain stitches and cast off by pulling the end of your yarn through your loop, leaving another end of at least 10”.

  • For the tassels: cut five 6” pieces, thread them all together through the clip of each keychain.
