How to Crochet a Button Charm Necklacecomments (8) March 10th, 2009
Find the center point of your length (this will be where the center extension is), then decide how far apart you want the legs. My necklace is 15 inches long, so the center point is at 7-1/2 inches. I made the extensions 2 inches apart from the center, which leaves 3-1/2 inches for each side of the back.
2. String the buttons onto the ball or spool of thread (don't cut it). Arrange them in the order of use (you won't be able to change the order once you get going), and string them up.
3. Begin crocheting. The buttons should be hanging out between the spool and your hook, waiting to be pulled up when you need them. Leaving a long tail (5 inches to 6 inches is good), make a slip knot and begin chainstitching the first back section of your necklace (3-1/2 inches in my case).
*When you reach this point, place a marker (I just used a piece of contrast thread).
