Bow Tie Necklace
Add flair to any simple neckline with this modern interpretation of filet crochet. A fun and satisfying project for crocheters who are new
to the filet technique, this project will also satisfy those who already love to crochet jewelry. Make a fully crocheted version or accent
the bow with actual chains that are attached with jump rings.
Bow measures 4 3/8” (11.5 cm) wide × 1 5/8”(4 cm) and 15½” (39.5 cm) around the neck.
Fingering weight (#1 Super fine).
