DIY Pocahontas Halskette

DIY Pocahontas necklace

I have to admit it, I’m a huge Disney fan. One of my favourite Disney movies is definitely Pocahontas (if you make it to the end of this post, I’ll tell you my top 5 as well 🙂 ). That’s also the reason why I already had to think of the Pocahontas necklace while crocheting the Boho necklace. So I just had to try to crochet it. And I think the result is quite good, isn’t it?

Would you like to crochet your own Pocahontas necklace? Here’s the simple pattern for making it:

For the DIY Pocahontas necklace you need:

What you need for the DIY Pocahontas necklace
What you need for the DIY Pocahontas necklace
  • Cotton, or cotton leftovers in blue, white and grey, e.g. we are knitters
  • A crochet hook (4,5 – 5 mm)
  • Eventually a pair of scissors
  • And you also need a comb for the feather

Here we go:

Chain 100+2 with your crochet hook.

Row 1: Work 34 double crochets starting from the third Chain. 3 double crochets into the next chain. 14 double crochets. 3 double crochets into the next chain. 14 double crochets. Work another 3 double crochets into the next chain. Finally work 35 double crochets until the end of your chain.

Row 2: Work 10 slip stitches. 10 single crochets. 10 half double crochets. 5 double crochets. 3 double crochets into the next chain. 16 double crochets. 3 double crochets into the next chain. 16 double crochets. 3 double crochets into the next chain. 5 double crochets. 10 half double crochets. 10 single crochets. 5 slip stitches.

Cut the thread and pull the end through the last stitch.

The feather:

Cut an approx. 20 cm long white cotton yarn as well as 10 white and 20 grey approx. 10 cm long cotton yarns.

Thread the long yarn in the middle of the necklace and lay it double.

Now you tie the short yarns starting with the white ones to the long yarn. Put the first cotton thread in a loop under the long cotton yarn. Take the second thread and place its loop under the two ends of the first thread. Then guide the two ends of the second thread over the long yarn through the loop of the first thread.

Tighten both threads to a knot.

Repeat that with all short threads.

Now unravel the individual threads from both sides with a comb and then cut them to size with scissors.

Tip: Fix the feather with some hairspray so that it keeps the desired shape.

Finish your project:

Sew the remaining threads on both ends.

Done!
