Hello! Welcome to the March Crafty Love Link Party #43, hosted by Marie Segares and me. Last month I noticed spring colors more non-yarn crafts then usual, and that makes me happy! You know I love yarn, but I love seeing what else you all can do. So keep on sharing your crafty creations and hopefully more of them will enter the top 5!

Be sure to share this link party with all your crafty friends so they can link up as well, and find new and fun craft projects around the web. Every month, the Crafty Love Link Party will open up on the first Thursday at 1:00 a.m. Eastern and close on the last Thursday at 11:55 p.m. Eastern. Share your latest crafts projects, patterns, tutorials, tips, and WIPS, and be sure to stop by and leave comments on other projects, too! Here are the 5 most clicked links from last month.

Waterfall Necklace

The Waterfall Necklace was on my mind for many years before I designed it. When I was working as a costume designer I made a dress with a similar neck in beads, and I have always wanted to replicate that as a necklace in crochet. Then I saw a gold chain and diamond necklace in a magazine ad that rekindled the memory, so I grabbed some yarn and beads and began! It is important that the beads used in this piece have holes large enough to fit a steel hook (1.25-1.5mm) through.
