There are so many ways I imagined adding yarn to this focal, but I had to start somewhere. I had a wonderful crochet thread leftover from a previous project. Its soft lovely color, combined with the darker walnut wood of the stitchable piece, gave me an earthy, neutral vibe. Next time I have some leftover yarn in a brighter color, I’ll make myself some statement earrings that really pop!

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Lace Weight Silk Yarn
  • Irish Waxed Linen
  • Walnut Wood Stitchable Focal
  • 18"-30" chain
  • matching jump rings
  • clasp if you necklace is too short to go over your head

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Choose a thread or yarn color of your choice. It’s great to choose a color that will contrast and pop against the walnut wood of the stitchable.

Step 2

Thread a beading needle with your yarn and begin stitching around the woven circle. Starting at any hole, thread the needle upwards from back to front.

Step

Step 3

Next choose a hole less than half way around the circle to thread the yarn back through to the back. Be sure to choose a far enough away from the first hole so that your thread doesn’t cross the large hole in the middle. I chose the 9th hole from my starting hole.

Step

Step 4

Now, continuing in a clockwise fashion, continue weaving lines that are 9 holes apart, moving one hole for each diagonal line. I ended up threading my yarn through several holes more than once. Soon you’ll create a beautiful, moving diagonal line, like a parabola forming around the middle of your wood piece.

Step 5

Continue weaving around until you are satisfied with the shape you’ve made. I stopped once I’d made a symmetrical ‘U’ shape.

Step 6

Tie the ends together at the back, add a dab of glue to the knot, and trim and weave in the ends. Or simply glue the ends in place onto the back of the piece.

Step 7

Attach a jump ring and your favorite chain and you’re ready! I chose my favorite shimmery crochet thread, added some toho seed beads, and crocheted myself a quick necklace cord.

Step 8

You can wear it as so, or even further embellish the focal with a few tassels at the bottom! I even added a funky crocheted piece I made to one of my necklaces.
