This is a lovely and very sweet pattern that originated in the 1940s for a 'dickie bow' and crochet beads.
The bow would make a very cute brooch or pin, and the beads - once you understand the process- can be made in any type or colour of yarn that you prefer. You can make them as necklaces, or in clusters as pins or brooches, or use them to decorate hats, bags accessories etc.
This pattern will help you use up all your odds and ends of yarn- even tiny pieces as you could make the beads stripy......
You can find the pattern as a pdf download at our website here with lots more necklace and crochet jewellery patterns too
