Spring around my neck

A crocheted flower necklace...
These vibrant colours from Patons are just the thing for this springtime necklace.
The pattern for the flowers can be found over at Attic24 - a great picture tutorial, ideal for beginners.

I used 3.5mm hook for the outer flowers and a 5mm hook for the centre flower.
I joined the flowers together from behind using a whip stitch.

I then finished the piece by adding a pearl to the centre of each flower and a simple chain stitch - using the same yarn as the centre flower.
