Free Pattern: ’80s Remix Chain

'80s Remix Chain, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

I’ve seen my fair share of fat gold chains. After all, I grew up in New York City during the birth of the hip hop scene. In 2013, I was asked to make some samples for the Kollabora booth at Vogue Knitting Live, and this is one of them.

My friend, Carlota Zimmerman, also remembers those days. We shared a few laughs and memories during this summer time photo shoot. However, this eye catching necklace could be worn in any season.

I’m sharing this as a blog freebie. Enjoy!
