Alternatively you may crochet the stitches, then measure when it reaches desired length.
Slip stitch in first stitch to form a loop/strand. This forms the first loop/strand.
Ch 44 for 2nd strand.
To make the 2nd loop/strand, slip stitch through first stitches of BOTH first and second strands.
Ch 46 for 3rd strand.
To make the 3rd loop/strand, slip stitch through first stitches of all 3 strands.
Bind off. Weave in all ends.
Note: Strands are increased by 2 stitches for each increasing length of strand.
This pattern may also be worked with just one strand of Ladder Ribbon or East Track. If using East Track, use Size N15 crochet hook and Ch 42 or until length is 24". If using Ladder Ribbon, you may wish to make 7 strands so the necklace looks fuller and bulkier.
