Simple Crochet Spiral Necklace Pattern: A Quick Project

This is a quick crochet pattern for a spiral necklace crocheted in Bernat organic cotton which is a worsted 10 ply (9 wpi). I used a 4.5 mm or U.S. 7 hook. The soft cotton makes for a light and soft accessory.

Start by loosely chaining 69 stitches. Single crochet in the 4th chain from hook. This will be the loop for your button closure. Then, make 3 single crochets in each of the remaining single crochets to end of chain. This creates the spiral!

Sew on a pretty button for the loop closure. As you can see, I used a wool needle and my cotton yarn to wrap the loop to make it more substantial. But, you may choose to leave it as crocheted.

If you'd like to show off your spiral necklace, post your project on Ravelry from the Spiral Necklace pattern page.

Happy Fiber Art Jewelry!

I really need to crochet...it's been 20 years, I think I should try it again. Adorable necklace.

It is so pretty...are you on etsy? I would love to "Fave" your shop if so.

I love that button hole idea! Darling! There are no girls in my life (not even any nieces) so fiber jewelry isn't a common thing for me to make, but buttonholes are always necessary. :)

Very cute! And it sounds easy - my crochet skills are limited to granny squares. I'll try it, I'm curious about how the spiral forms!
