Making Adjustable Yarn Necklaces

I want to make a 5 strand necklace, using ladder yarn with a big hole bead to to make it tighter. I believe you do a crochet stitch and knots. Is that correct?

I usually buy a chain necklace at the dollar store & attach this to the back. This way you can use the hook (or catch) to attach it anywhere, up & down the chain & you can have many lengths! You can also buy chain at any craft store, but I like to buy it at the dollar store if they have it.

To attach it to the ladder yarn, simply run the yarn (or a matching color of thin yarn or string) through one of the links at the end of the chain. Buy a chain with fairly large links, these work best. Write me here on ThriftyFun if you have any more questions.

Try patterns_ladderribbonnecklace.htm.

I make slip knot leaving about 12" tail, chain stitch as long as desired, & leave tail of same length. Make more strand until you have thickness you want. Tie a knot at beginning & end to keep strands together. Insert small bead to adjust length if desired. Otherwise, tie a knot in all strands & your'e finished.

Use a trellis yarn or laddder ribbon. Much has been discontinued but you can find bargains on Ebay & etsy.

Does anyone know how to make necklaces out of yarn? They were adjustable with a bead on the back they were made with several strands and it was not the normal yarn it was more like fancy ribbons?

Making Adjustable Yarn Necklaces

Here is how I made my "yarn" necklace: I used a large wooden bead (1/2 - 3/4 inches in diameter) with a fairly large hole. I then laid out 46 inch lengths of various fancy yarns and a light weight variegated ribbon. These weren't actually yarns.They were those specialty yarns and trims. One is called "Fun Fur" eyelash yarn. I used 5 strands. It will depend on how large the hole is in your bead. I think I used a large holed needle and strung the ends in opposite directions through the bead. That way you can pull the two sides to adjust the length you want your necklace to be. I also added other types of beads at the bottom of some of the strands. I get lots of compliments when I wear it. I used a variety of colors instead of just one. I hope this helps you out.
