“VICTORIA NECKLACE” – CROCHET PATTERN BY HILARIA FINA
INSPIRATION + DESIGN
The Victorian era in UK´s history matches with the peak of the Industrial Revolution and the British Empire. In those times people was used to make their clothes ordering them made to measure with tailors, or doing them by themselves if they had not enough resources. The Victorian era also refers the period of Queen Victoria’s reign, from 20 June 1837 until her death on 22 January 1901. Ideologically, the Victorian era witnessed resistance to the rationalism towards romanticism and mysticism with regard to religion, social values, and arts.

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED
With about 15 cm of yarn, make a loop. Insert your hook through the center of the loop, draw the end of the yarn through the loop, and pull on the tail to tighten.
CHAIN (ABBREVIATION ch)
YO and pull the yarn through the loop on the hook.
SLIP STITCH (ABBREVIATION: sl st)
Insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull through the stitch and also the loop on the hook in one go.
SINGLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: sc)
Insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (2 loops on your hook), YO again and pull through both loops on the hook in one go.
DOUBLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: dc)
YO, insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook in one go (2 loops remain on the hook), YO again and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook.
CROCHETING INTO THE BACK BUMP OF A CHAIN
Usually you crochet in the right side of the chain. When you turn your chain, you’ll see a small ‘bump’ on the wrong side of each stitch. Insert your hook under this back bump.
BOBBLE STITCH (abbrev. bo)
A bobble is a number of stitches, half finished and all worked into the same st. Work each stitch until the last step, omitting this final step. Once the desired number of half finished sts have been completed, YO and then pull through all loops on the hook in one go to complete the bobble.
CHAIN SPACE (abbrev. ch sp)
To create a stitch within a chain space, just insert your hook into the space/hole/gap (underneath the chain) to make your stitch.
- ch = chain
- ch1sp = worked into a chain space
- dc = double crochet
- -inc = increase (crochet 2 stitches into the same stitch, example: sc-inc)
- lp (s) = loop (s)
- bo = bobble stitch
- rnd (s) = round (s)
- sc = single crochet
- slst = slip stich
- st (s) = stitch (es)
- YO = yarn over
- Row … = At the beginning of each pattern line, you’ll find “Row” + a number to indicate which “row”.
- (…) = At the end of each line you will find the number of stitches you should have at end of each “row”.
- […] x … = When part of the instructions repeat throughout the “row”, it ́ll be placed between brackets x the number of times it should be repeated.
- (…) = stitches between (…) are worked into the same stitch.
- Example: Row 01. (3sc) in the same stitch, [2sc, sc-inc] x 2. (11 sts)

CHECK CHART – VICTORIA
FINISHING AND DETAILS
- You can use cord as necklace closure, a ribbon or any other material you may like. Use rings to pass the ribbon.
- Use studs or beads to give an especial touch to the necklace. Or make rows in different colors in order to create a multicolor design.
- Optional – Blocking
The blocking technique is a finish step for some crochet items or pieces. After washing or wetting the piece, you achieve final item’s proper shape by gently stretching or pinning it. Once the piece is dry it will remain in that shape. You could do blocking by ironing the item or you can use stiffening solution to make item stiff or more structured. I never use stiffer, due that raw material will loose its touch and natural texture. Hand feel is for me an essential part of the final product beauty.
You should follow the following steps when you just wish to water block the item (and not to starch it).
- If you need to wash the item, do it hand wash, using cold water and a bit of soap (to dry it off you must not wring the item, use a towel to remove water out)
- If you need no wash, you can can simply use a water spray to dampen it.
- Once is wet, spread the item with the right side up on a flat surface where you can pin (cork, wood, padded surface..), and let it naturally dry.
CONGRATS! You made it. I hope you enjoyed each step. ❥4U
