How to Crochet an I Chord and A Free Crochet Necklace Pattern

I recently learned how to crochet an I Chord. I had no idea that you could crochet them. I thought they you could only knit an I Chord. An I Chord is handy to know how to crochet. With one, you can embellish items, make jewelry or roll it up and sew it create something like a coaster, placement, etc..

A couple of weeks ago, I received a subscription box to Darn Good Yarn. I received some beautiful yarn. It is a worsted weight silk roving yarn called Watercolors. Here is a picture:

Isn’t it so pretty!?

Anyways, I decided a good project for this beautiful yarn would be an I Chord Necklace. I had never tried one before and it seemed pretty easy! Which it is! It was a lot of fun and I love how the necklace shows off all the colors of this yarn.

So, here is how to make an I Chord Necklace.


Watercolors Worsted Weight Yarn From Darn Good Yarn

Crochet Hook G


Sc- Single Crochet

Ch- Chain

Dc- Double Crochet

Tr- Treble Crochet


To start: Chain 3

Row 1: Draw up a loop on each chain. You will have 3 loops on your hook.

Row 2: Take 2 loops off your hook and hold them with your left hand. Ch with your first loop. Chain with the second loop. Chain with the third loop. You will end with 3 new stitches and 3 loops on the hook.

Row 3: Repeat row 2.

Row 4- The length of your necklace. I wanted to make a wrap around necklace. I used most of the skein for my necklace.

For the Flower Embellishment

To Start: Magic circle and sc 8 in the middle. Ch 2.

Row 1: Sc, dc, trc, trc in first stitch. Trc, trc, dc, sc in next stitch. Work this pattern around to make a flower with 4 petals.

To finish, I chained about 30 chains and then wrapped it around the necklace to keep it together. This is optional. Then I sewed the flower in the middle. You could also make several and put them on.

So, what do you think? Would you like to create this necklace? I would love to see if you do!
