WWDD: 5 Necklines to Show off the Municipal Necklace
If you are looking for a truly unique crochet necklace, look no further! The Municipal Necklace from Interweave Crochet Spring 2017, designed by Kathryn White, is a crochet necklace like no other.
It uses Lizbeth Size 10 Thread (distributed by Handy Hands) and a size 6/1.6mm hook, so the stitches are quite small and intricate. The necklace features a Romanian point lace cord and bullion stitch, two techniques you don’t see often. If you’ve never attempted a project like this before, I encourage you to give it a try!
If you put the work into making this incredible necklace, you’ll want to show it off. Here are 5 different necklines you likely already have in your closet that will show off the Municipal Necklace:
1. A Collared Shirt
The collared shirt neckline is great because it can be worn a variety of ways. To show off the Municipal Necklace, try leaving a couple of the top buttons undone so the necklace can peek through.
2. A Turtleneck
Long-sleeved, short-sleeved, or sleeveless: a turtleneck can seem boring if there is no necklace to dress it up. Make this neckline pop with this special project.
3. A V-neck Shirt
A V-neckline mimics the shaping of the Municipal Necklace and frames it perfectly. Try a basic V-neck T-shirt or a plunging V-neck (if your dare) for fancier occasions.
4. An Off-the-Shoulder Shirt
An off-the-shoulder shirt flashes a little bit of skin—it’s just edgy enough to match this cool crochet piece.
5. A Crewneck
A crewneck features minimal shaping at the neckline, offering the perfect contrast to the intricacy of the Municipal Necklace.
