Things you need
- Steel crochet hooks (size 7 and 10)
- 1 ball cotton crochet thread (any colour, size 10)
- Many buttons of various colour and size
Chain 10 with the size 7 crochet hook to make the loop fastener of the necklace. Join with a slip stitch the last chain to the first chain, making a circle. Chain one and work a single crochet in each chain around the circle. Join the first single crochet to the last single crochet with a slip stitch to finish the loop fastener.
Chain 150 to begin the foundation for the necklace. Turn your work and crochet a single crochet in the second chain from your crochet hook. Single crochet in each chain back to the starting point. Make a slip stitch in the slip stitch of the loop fastener to finish this round.
Switch to the size 10 crochet hook.
Chain 3 and add a button to the thread by inserting a loop through a buttonhole, place the loop onto your crochet hook, yarn over (three loops on your hook now) and pull the yarn-over loop through the other two loops to leave one loop on your hook. Chain 3 again and add as many buttons as you desire using the same method. Chain 3 after the last button you add.
Skip the next single crochet along the necklace and then make slip stitches in as many stitches as you desire (this will create spacing between your button loops). Use the same spacing each time to ensure your spacing is even along your necklace or make the spacing random, whichever is your preference.
Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to make loops of buttons along the entire necklace. Stop adding button loops when you have approximately three single crochets left.
Attach only one button at the end of the necklace, making sure the button you use at the end will fit through the loop fastener securely.
Fasten off your crocheting by pulling a loop through and tying a tight knot. Cut off the excess crochet thread.
