Infinity jewellery pattern
You Will Need
- Crochet hook
- Sewing needle
Foundation: Using Yarn A and 1.25 mm hook, ch56.
Row 1 (RS): 1dc in 2nd ch from hook, (1dc in each of next 2 sts, 2dc in next st) 5 times, 1dc in each of next 8 sts, (dc2tog, 1dc in each of next 4 sts) 5 times, 1dc in last ch. Turn. [55sts]
Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st), 1dc in first st, (1dc in each of next 3 sts, dc2tog) 5 times, 1dc in each of next 8 sts, (2dc in next st, 1dc in each of next 3 sts) 5 times, 1dc in last st. Turn. [55sts]
Row 3: Ch 1 (does not count as st), 1dc in first st, (1dc in each of next 4 sts, 2dc in next st) 5 times, 1dc in each of next 8 sts, (dc2tog, 1dc in each of next 2 sts) 5 times, 1dc in last st. [55sts] Fasten off and sew in ends.
Using Yarn B and 2.5mm hook. Join into first st of row 3 with a ss. Loosely ss in each st across (55 sts). Fasten off. Join into the unused loop of the foundation ch under the last st of row 1 with a ss and loosely ss in each loop across (55sts). (Always going over the outside edge of the infinity symbol working in to the inside edge, so that the slip stitches face the same way). Fasten off.
Tip: If you struggle to insert your hook on the edging rows, try loosening spaces using the smaller hook.
Count along outer edging to 33rd st. Using tail from the opposite end of that outer edge, join in reverse of 33rd st, sew 3 sts evenly along the end of the shape to the Yarn A loops at the back of work created by the edging row, add one final stitch connecting inner edging to shape. Repeat from the opposite side. Sew in ends. Flip work over to right side and flatten/press under a heavy book.
Cut chain in half. Attach a jump ring to 9th edging chain from centre on both sides, and attach one end of each chain to these rings. Attach a jump ring to opposite ends of each chain, adding the clasp onto one of them.
Tip: For extra sturdiness paint the reverse of the crochet with PVA glue and a paintbrush. Replace the jump rings with split rings for a stronger connection.
