Crochet jewelry can be very delicate and dainty looking. This crochet Picot Necklace pattern certainly fits into that category.
You can use whatever color crochet thread you like, but I chose white, because of the simple elegance of this necklace.
This picot necklace is a fairly quick and easy project, which is good if you are making it as a gift, because you just might want to make another for yourself!
