Although I haven’t been posting them daily, I am still active in wearing and photographing my 365 Ways to Wear Crochet and those photos will still be popping up throughout this site. I recently made a simple crochet necklace that you’ve already seen and have since worn it in three different ways. That’s one of the best things about a long simple necklace – it offers so much variety.

The necklace is a super long crochet chain in blue with a shell stitch in brown. You first saw me wear it like this:

I then decided to see if I could put some really curvy twists into the necklace and here’s what I came up with:

Don’t be afraid to play with the things that you make!
