The very talented Yoshiko has joined us to share her tutorial for a crochet birdcage necklace with us exclusively on the blog. You may recognise these necklaces as they are featured inside Issue 4!
You will need…
5mm LED (white)
LED cap (blue)
3V coin cell battery
+ Scissors and a needle
Step one – make your light
Tape the LED leads to the battery (the longer lead touching positive + and the shorter lead touching negative – of the battery ).
Keep the tape very tight.
Use a blue LED cap to make the necklace’s light more subtle.
Step 2 – crochet around the LED
Make a magic ring and make 6 single crochet into the loop.
Do 1 single crochet into each stitch. Now it is time to decrease to cover the LED and battery.
Step 3 – build the birdcage
1 single crochet into each stitch around.
Make a chain 6.
Stitch through top of birdcage to close securely.
Step 6 – attach a chain.
