Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: one necklace


  • roll of pink, gray, and purple mix-a-match T-shirt yarn
  • 12mm crochet hook
  • needle and matching thread
  • sewing pin
  • standard scissors


  1. Cut 6 strings of T-shirt yarn, each with a length of approximately 80".
  2. Start with the first string of T-shirt yarn. Make a slip knot approximately 17" from the one end of the string.
  3. Crochet 21 chain stitches ~ try and keep the stitches even in size.
  4. To finish, pull the remaining string through the loop.
  5. Do the same with the 5 other strings of T-shirt yarn.

  7. Use the sewing pin to pin all 6 strings together below the slip knots at the start of each chain. Now use a backstitch to neatly sew them together.
  8. Cut two pieces of string from the remaining yarn on the roll, each with a length of 8". Wind one piece tightly around the area where the 6 strings were sewn together and use a backstitch to secure. (Note: You will use the second 8" piece of string in step 9.)

  10. Now gather the six strings together 10" lower down from the area where the short piece of string was wound, and use a backstitch to sew them together. Neatly cut the ends behind the stitches shorter.
  11. Repeat steps 6, 7, and 8 on the other side of the six chains.

  13. Place the two ends of the necklace over one another and use a backstitch to neatly sew everything together.
  14. Cut a 16" piece of T-shirt yarn from the roll. Wind this piece tightly around the area where the two ends were connected and use a backstitch to secure.
