I love the idea of raffia for warm weather, and played with lots of ideas on how to use it before I settled on revisiting a technique I used last summer. Instead of yarn, like these crochet necklaces, I used my crochet hook to add raffia to a simple chain bracelet.
Tools and materials:
Large chain link bracelet (or make your own, like I did, with 12 mm chain, jump rings, and a toggle clasp)
To crochet the raffia to the chain, follow these steps from my previous tutorial. I made a single row on one side of the chain, then knotted and trimmed the tails.
Cut and fold together few strands of the raffia to make a tassel. Loop the strands through one of the end links, then tie with another strand and trim the ends.
