The Redrum Necklace


Just remember me darling
When I'm in six feet of cold, cold ground
Hugh Laurie - Six Cold Feet 


Just after dear ol' Johnny touched your skin with his axe, you tried to escape his murdering eye and... surprise to us all, succeeded. Kind of. Now you're left with a rather bloody mess around your neck. A bloody good looking mess, that is!

This necklace is something quick to get you settled with when time isn't on your hand (although who's counting when you're dead?). You'll be done before one can say 'He murdered who?!!!".


What I've used
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
4mm crochet hook
1 ball of wool
1 button
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

There's no better colour than a Bloody Mary red. Mine is from Zeeman Royal yarn (241m per 100g). You'll just need a little, 1 ball of wool is already a tad bit too much. Oh well, you can always try and find Johnny and show him how you kill someone properly...

The 'body' of the necklace is 35 cm long aka:
We'll be starting with a chainstitch of 65 +1 (to turn with).
The second row will be in double crochet (American: single crochet) + 3 chainstitch.
The third row will be in treble (American: double crochet) + 1 chainstitch.
The fourth and final row of the 'body' will be in double crochet + 10 chainstitch. These 10 you'll need to attach to the side of your 'body' so you'll create a loop where your button can go through.
WARNING! The length of the last chainstitch is dependend on the button you're using. Tip: First sew the button on to the other end of your 'body' and measure how much space you'll be needing.

Now fold the body into two. Find the middle of your work and measure out 5 cm to the right. Now turn over your work and insert your crochet hook about the same place of those 5 cm (don't worry, it ain't exact science). Now follow these instructions to get yourself some dripping blood:

10 chainstitch, skip 1,1 double crochet.
30 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
2 double crochet
3 chainstich, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
15 chainstitch , skip 1, 1 double crochet.
30 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
20 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
1 double crochet
5 chainstitch, 1 double crochet
15 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
1 double crochet
30 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
3 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
4 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
3 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.
15 chainstitch, skip 1, 1 double crochet.


Done! All you'll need to do now is work away all those unwanted threads and start threatening dear ol' Johnny with his own life. Guess who's just risen from their grave! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAA!!!!

Love,
Dominique
