HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE! (unless you’re below the equator)
Then happy winter solstice!!!! Anyway, for those living in the northern hemisphere, it’s the longest day of the year and daylight only gets shorter from here until December (womp). With the official start of summer being today, I’ve been all about them summer vibes. I’ve got my summery playlist on, I made myself an awesome fruity smoothie and I’ve created a ~new~ crochet choker pattern.
Yep! Crocheting is not just for winter. You can make decorations, clothing, accessories and even stuffed animals for all four seasons (and we all know how much I love that).
Chokers are back in style, so I decided to go off of that and create a crochet choker pattern with a cute little anchor charm that I bought at Michaels. Actually, everything I used for this project I purchased from Michaels (except the crochet hook which I bought on Amazon). For your convenience, I’ve linked everything I used below. Learn how to make this super easy project using my crochet choker pattern!
DIY Crochet Choker Pattern:
What You’ll Need:
- Crochet Hook, Size B, 2.25mm
- Crochet Cotton Thread/Yarn Size 10 (White)
- Anchor Charm
- A button
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Double Crochet (dc)
- Slip Stitch (ss)
Let’s begin, shall we?
- create a slip knot and crochet 50 chains (47 foundation chains, with three chains being left for the first double crochet. You should be here:
are you here? GREAT!
2. in the fourth chain from the hook, dc 7 (the double crochets should all be in the same stitch).
badabing badaboom, ya got yourself a shell stitch…[sorta].
3. skip one chain.
4. sc in next chain.
5. skip one chain.
6. in next chain, dc 7.
7. repeat steps 2-5, ten more times.
8. skip one chain.
9. sc in last stitch (chain #50).
you should be….. here! (12 shells)
10. Chain 3. (you’ll now begin to work on the opposite side of your chains)
11. dc 7 into the other side the of previously worked shell.
12. sc into opposite side of previously worked sc.
13. Repeat 11-12 four more times.
14. dc 7 into other side of previously worked dc 7. (this should be your 6th shell)
15. In the next sc space (opposite of already worked sc), attach your charm with a sc.
Thus you are…
16. dc 7 into opposite side of next shell (7th shell).
17. sc on opposite side of previous sc.
18. Repeat 16-17 four more times.
19. dc 7 into the opposite side of last shell.
20. ss into the beginning chain.
*Note* I put the charm on a different spot in the photo above!
21. chain 20-30 (person preference in how tight you want your choker), and ss back into the beginning chain creating a loop
22. Fasten off and weave in ends!
23. To attach the button on the opposite side, Place a small piece of crochet thread through the buttonholes. Tie several knots between the chain 3 space, and dc shells. Weave in the ends, and cut any remaining string.

I decided to name this the Yarrow Choker because I am a plant lover and #plantlady always. The white shell pattern reminds me of the look and feel of Yarrow flowers. I felt like it was appropriate.
This crochet choker pattern is perfect to try these upcoming summer months. It’s super beachy and fun and an awesome accessory to add to your summer wardrobe. Feel free to comment below with any questions.
