(Not so Golden) Snitch Necklace

This quirky necklace (or bracelet) started as a simple mistake. I was creating the Crochet Ball Necklace by Coats & Clark and when I realized my mistake it looked like the snitch from Harry Potter! I ripped the original necklace and continued to make a row of snitches. I mean, who doesn’t love Harry Potter jewelry?? 🙂

You will find more of my patterns here on Ravelry.com.

Materials

  • 1.5 mm crochet hook
  • ~20 yards sport weight yarn
  • Suggested yarns: Ella Rae Lace Merino
  • 9 beads (your choice depending on number of flowers)
  • Tapestry needle

Gauge

Gauge is not particularly important for this pattern as you can add chains to make the necklace or bracelet fit any neck or wrist size.

Abbreviations

  • ch – chain
  • sts – stitches
  • ss – slip stitch
  • dc – double crochet
  • wing – double crochet 5 together
  • pb – place bead

Special Techniques

wing: (yo and draw up a loop in indicated st, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) 5 times; yo and draw through all 6 loops on hook

pb: work to indicated space, remove hook and then insert the hook through the bead and back into the last stitch; you will then pull the stitch through the bead and push the bead into place

Necklace Instructions

Before beginning this piece you will need to string beads of choice onto your yarn.

ch. 18

  • wing in 3rd chain from hook, ch 4, pb, wing in 2nd chain after last wing; *ch 8 wing in 5th chain after last wing, ch 4, pb, wing in 2nd chain after last wing*; repeat 7 times
  • ch 15, sl st to join with the first chain^
  • ch 1; sc across the original 15 stitches, and then across the top of the beaded section. This will be approximately 3 stitches per bead. You will then continue to sc across the last 15 stitches
  • cut yarn; make an invisible join, and weave in the ends

^Here is where you will add or subtract chains to increase or decrease the size of the necklace or bracelet.

Note: This is a relatively simple pattern; however, it has not yet been tested. Please let me know if you have any feedback! Also, this pattern may be used for whatever purpose you would like to use it. If you happen to sell something using this pattern, please put a link to my blog.
