Inspired by a gallon jar of vintage buttons, this Interchangeable Era Button Necklace is a perfect accent for your period costumes. It’s both quick and easy to make, using only the three most basic crochet stitches and taking an hour or less to stitch. A great starter project for those interested in dabbling with thread! It features a doubled 18 in. chain, basic closure, and a dense 1 1/2 in. pendant, which makes a wonderful backdrop for a novelty or vintage button, creating an endless variety of styles for different eras–as the photos demonstrate. Tips on choosing the best look for different eras are included. Skill Level: easy. Designed by Kristen Stoltzfus just for Sense & Sensibility customers.
Note for European and Australian customers: Some crocheting terms are different from the US. Thanks to customer Antonia L, who shared a great link to translate terms from American to British (also used in AUS): http://crochet.about.com/od/conversioncharts/a/termtranslate.htm
