I wonder if all children love rocks as much as mine. They have all went through “the rock phase”, but Crash seems especially smitten with stones. He loves the ones that are smooth, or have an interesting texture, but always round or oval in shape. He will spend a good amount of time every day crouched over the gravel, keeping his eyes peels for a piece of treasure. When he inevitably finds one, he moves his chubby legs as fast as he can to show me what he has found. Then he will clutch it in his fist for the next hour or so until he drops it for another play thing. I usually pray that I find it before the vacuum does, which unfortunately has not gone my way a few times 🤣.
CROCHET GEM KEEPER NECKLACE CROCHET PATTERN
It seems high time to create a lovely piece of jewelry to hold all those precious treasures. I absolutely adore turquoise, but I took my oldest daughter to visit some of the gift shops around town and find some polished stone to put in our necklaces. We found some very lovely ones! I wonder how rocks can come in such bright colors. Nature truly is a wonder!
The pattern includes 3 variations! I prefer the diamond mesh one as it accommodates a wider stone due to the nature of the finished fabric, but the other ones are so lovely as well.
I attempted to design these with fingering weight yarn, but after much trial and error, #10 cotton thread ended up being the winner, as I wanted to showcase the stone as much as possible.
