World's Easiest Choker

Did you like the burnt
ribbon flower choker?
If you did,
you want to know how to make one
for yourself
here is how you do it.

Things you need:
~ Crochet thread Size 10 in Black (or your favorite color)
~ Steel crochet hook 2.75mm
~ 2 medium sized jump rings
~ Lobster Clasp
~ Extension chain 
~ Flowers or other embelishments

Step 1:
Chain stitch until you get a piece that 1/2 inch smaller than your neck. You don't want the chain ends to touch.
For me it was approximately 130 chain stitches.

Step 2:
Single crochet in the second stitch from the hook and then in every chain stitch.
Chain 1 and turn.

Step 3:
Extended single crochet in every SC
(Extended Single Crochet: Insert hook in stitch as for SC, yarn over, draw up loop, yarn over and pull through 1 loop on hook, yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook
Chain 1 and turn

Step 4:
Extended single crochet into every stitch
Chain 1 and turn

Step 5:
Single crochet into every stitch.
Finish off.
This is how the band will look
Instead of blocking, 
I just ran a steam iron over the band.


Sew the jump rings to either end of the band.
Join the lobster claw to one jump ring 
and the extension chain to the other jump ring.
I took the extension chain off 
an old broken necklace

Sew flowers into place

And wear!
