Get your summer vibe on with these quick coral crochet jewelry patterns. Make a beautiful coral crochet necklace and spend 10 minutes more to make a set of matching earrings. This pattern takes up very little yarn and works up nice and quick in a single evening.
Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this crochet necklace. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge, and sizing information. If you would like all of this in a nicely formatted printable format, you can purchase the Ad-Free Large Print PDF Pattern.
I love the nautical vibe and wanted to create some fun accessories to go with my Yacht Club Beach bag. This coral crochet jewelry patterns are the perfect compliment. You can wear them to dress up jeans and a tank top or with a pretty sundress.
For this example I used Lion Brand’s ZZ Twist that I had left over from the Southwest Kimono Cardigan. This yarn has a silky texture and great stitch definition. It was perfect for these necklaces and earrings, but any worsted weight yarn will work. I would just try to use something that has a nice smooth finish and will not pill up over time.

Coral Crochet Jewelry Patterns : Necklace
– Written in US terms.
– Feel Free to use as many chains on the base chain to get the desired necklace length.
Base Chain Option 1: When using jewelry fasteners.
Ch 100 . Fasten off.
Use the starting and ending tail to tie on your fasteners and weave in your ends.
Base Chain Option 2: When using a Button for necklace closure.
Ch 108. Turn and Slip Stitch to the 9th Ch from the hook. Slst to the next 2 Chain. Fasten off. This creates a button hole.
Use your starting tail to sew on a button at that end and weave in both tail ends.
Crochet Coral Necklace: The Corals
Using stitch markers, mark where you would like your coral to start and end.
You can count the same number of chains from each side of the fasteners, to help keep the corals centered.
The photo tutorial below will show you how to make a single coral branch. You will then repeat this process until you reach your other stitch marker.
I will show you two methods to finish the coral branch. Depending on which you choose, your corals will be more clumped together or spread out.
Step 1: Single Crochet to the first Chain with a Stitch marker.
Step 2: Chain 6.
Step 3: Slip Stitch into the 2nd and 3rd Chain from the hook.
Step 4: Chain 9.
Step 5: Slip Stitch to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th, chain from the hook.
Step 6: Chain 5.
Step 7: Slip Stitch to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th, chain from the hook.
Step 8: Working down the unworked chains between the first and second branch, Slip Stitch to the next 3 Chain. This will leave one Chain unworked between your hook and the very first branch made.
Step 9: Chain 3
Step 10: Slip Stitch to the 2nd and 3rd Chain from the hook.
Step 11: Slip Stitch to the unworked Chain between your hook and the very first branch, then Slip Stitch to the 3 Chains below the first branch worked.
Step 12: Sc to the next Chain of the Base Chain.
From here you have two options.
If you want a more compact necklace with a lot of coral branches, then just repeat steps 2-12 until your last Single Crochet lands in the same stitch that you have a stitch marker in to mark where you want the branches to end.
If you want to have your corals more spread out like the blue necklace pictured, then work 1 more Single Crochet into the next Chain of the Base Chain every time you finish a coral. This will spread your coral out by one more stitch.
Keep repeating the above steps until you reach your second stitch marker. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
How about some matching Coral earrings?
To make an earring just use the steps above but eliminate the base Chain. Start with Step 2 and fasten off after Step 11. Use a yarn needle to weave the yarn ends through a bead and tie them to a Fish hook earring base. I weaved my ends back through the bead and clipped the threads, hiding the ends in the bead.
I did have to use pliers to get the needle through the bead before fastening off.
Make your second earring and you will have a beautiful matching crochet jewelry set.
