Freyja Nordic Necklace

The Freyja Nordic Necklace Crochet Pattern is one of those crochet patterns that you can customize from what it was originally designed for.  A little farther below you will see it how my testers customized theirs using thinner yarn for a person’s necklace; or used for a Hat Band; or used for a Wrist Band; or used for a Cat & Dog Necklace using both DK Weight and Worsted/Aran Weight Yarn.

So, why not even try different thicknesses of yarn to make yourself one!  You will find a free crochet pattern of the Freyja Nordic Necklace below.

 

 

The Freyja Nordic Necklace Crochet Pattern came to be because my son loves anything to do with Norse History.  That is why he named his dog Freyja.  Ever since she was a puppy I loved to dress her up.  My son even started asking me to make things for Freyja lol.  So I decided to design something that relates to Nordic History and Freyja’s name.  This is how I came up with this design.
