Yarn Review featured project! Red Heart Sizzle is perfect to crochet a curb chain.
The crochet curb chain necklace is one of my favorite accessories! You can whip one up in a coordinating color just minutes before you need to leave the house.
The crochet curb chain necklace is one of those projects that is more of a concept than a pattern. Once you’ve mastered this concept, you can apply it to any curb chain! I can see this used for bracelets, anklets, purse straps or handles…if it has a chain, you can crochet on it! In my demonstration, I have used a 20″ curb chain to make a larger statement necklace. Let’s have a look shall we?

- Ch – Chain
- Sc – Single Crochet
The number of single crochet used for each chain will vary depending on the size of your curb chain. Each chain in my curb chain measures 3/4″ wide and 8 Sc work perfectly and the instructions are written for a curb chain of this size. Please be aware that you may need to adjust this number if you are working with a different size chain.
The crochet curb chain necklace project will teach you a technique rather than just a pattern. You can apply the techniques to any chain, of any size. I recommend that you watch the video tutorial for guidance and challenge yourself to use what you’ve learned for all sorts of projects!
Most curb chains that you purchase will come with a clasp. You will notice in the video that mine does not. I have chosen to use a satin ribbon as the closure for my necklace. If your chain does not come with a clasp you can purchase one separately or you can even slip stitch the ends together when you are finished crocheting the chain (sized permitted of course).

Begin with a slip knot. Insert your hook into the first chain and place the slip knot on your hook. Pull the slip knot through the chain and Ch 1 (counts as a SC). Make 7 more SC in the first chain.
Tip: Make sure your curb chain is laying flat and is not twisted! Once you crochet over the chains, you are locking them into place.
Make 8 SC in every chain until you have reached the end of your curb chain. Bind off and weave in your ends. You will find that it is easier to use a tapestry needle rather than a darning needle to weave your ends underneath the tight single crochet.
