Pattern of the Week: Belle Necklace & Cuff
Add some frontier flair to your wardrobe with the Belle Necklace and Cuff set. Vintage-inspired finishings adorn this rosy red and dusty tan colored crochet design reminiscent of old western motifs. The Belle Necklace and Cuff also work up surprisingly quick, making it the perfect last minute accessory that looks anything but!
Front post treble stitches give the Belle necklace some texture along with a color accent and metal buttons. It is crocheted around a plain metal bracelet and will dress up any outfit. Get a copy of Interweave Crochet Spring 2018 and make the matching cuff for a complete set.
