Now, I'm back again to share the full story behind and showcase more project pictures for the Dainty Broken Heart Locket, the smallest Broken Hearts project!
It features the use of sewing thread in three colours - mint, pink and purple.
I paired it with my smallest, 0.75mm hook, which is the same one I used for the second necklace set because it is the only size smaller than my 1.05mm hook.
This time, I finally got to make a clasp variation. However, I didn't notice when I purchased the clasp that it only came with the clasps and no rings. So, I had to make do and create a chain loop.
I don't recommend using a chain loop as it was a challenge to fasten the clasp to it.
Since this one used the clasp for the necklace chain, I had to slip stitch back. And, as I crocheted the lacy border, I also joined both heart halves together.
Although, I turned this project into a locket, this sizing would also be great as a keyring fob!
Of the three necklaces, this is the one I can wear. It's dainty enough to compliment my small self.
Though, working with the sewing thread was quite the challenge. It is not something I really want to do again without some sort of magnifying goggles or glasses. It was tricky to see the stitches at night.
Purchase this Broken Hearts crochet pattern as part of "Love it up Valentines! January 2017 Get Stuffed issue #2", or wait until April 1st, 2017 when I release the official Rebeckah's Treasures' PDF version, complete with a photo tutorial!
