Flower Necklace Hawaiian Dream

Materials used:
  • embroidery thread, 5 colors. The embroidery thread it is very soft and nice on the skin.
  • 1,5 mm crochet hook
  • clasps
  • sewing needle to sew in the ends

Stitches, terms (US) and abbreviations used:
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
sl st: slip stitch
tr: treble crochet
yo: yarn over

Special stitch:
tr3tog: treble 3 together = [yo twice, insert hook as indicated in the pattern, draw loop through, (yo, draw through 2 loops, leaving the next loops on hook)*2 times]*3 times.

In other words, you will make 3 unfinished treble crochet, leaving each time the last loop on hook, so at the end you'll have 4 loops on hook; yo, draw through all 4 loops on the hook.
See the photo collage below, in the pattern.

Flower Pattern:

Chain 5, join with slip stitch into ring.
Ch4 (count as the first sc and ch3), (1sc into ring, 3ch)* 5 times, ending with sl st into first ch of the ch4 at the beginning of the round. You have 6 arches.

The first row: flower center

Slip stitch into first ch3 space of the center and work
*4ch, tr3tog in ch3 space, 4ch, sl st into same ch space, sl st into next ch space*. The first petal it is finished. Repeat from * to * for the next 5 petals, ending with a sl st in the sl st made by joining the previous round. Cut yarn. Fasten off.

First finished flower
How to join the flowers:
I started with the center flower and joined on the go on each side the other flowers, for a symmetrical
look regarding the colors.
After you made the first flower, work the second flower until the last petal. Do not finish the last petal! After making the tr3tog, remove the hook and insert it in the first flower, in the top of a petal (in a tr3tog of the first flower)

and make a slip stitch, 

then continue the last petal of the second flower with 4 chain and slip stitch as normal. 

You have joined 2 flowers. Continue the same way for the next flowers. 9 flowers total.

Weave in the ends.
The straps:
Join a long piece of embroidery cotton with a sl st in the outside petal of the flower at the end of the row and ch 40.

 Put the clasp on the string, fasten the clasp. 

Turn and work a slip stitch in each ch across. Slip stitch in the petal. Fasten off.

Repeat for the other side. Sew the yarn tails. Finished!
