Be your own warrior with the Warrior Choker. Embody strength and style while you slay the day or night.
Have you seen Black Panther? I did!! And it was awesome!!! Besides the ENTIRE MOVIE being great, I loved the all woman royal guard, the Dora Milaje, led by the fearless Okoye. The Warrior Choker was inspired by Okoye’s uniform, which is one of the coolest uniforms I’ve seen.
If you’re a fan that enjoys cosplay, grab some sport weight or thinner yarn and a hook to make the Warrior Choker. The Warrior Choker crochet pattern can be made by an advanced beginner, and makes a great project for practicing foundation single crochet and counting.
And if you aren’t a fan of Marvel Universe, but have funky style, the Warrior Choker is a great accessory for you too. Wear your choker with you favorite v-neck black dress for date night, or pair with a tank, jeans and some heels for a sassy, casual look.
This is the PDF pattern, and not a completed item.
Difficulty: Advanced Beginner
hook size E
Yarn: Newton’s Yarn Country Flash (60% acrylic, 25% nylon, 15% metallic) or any sport weight/ category 2 yarn or smaller- small amount
scissors spacer bars with closures attached
thin crafting needle to fit within holes of spacer bars
sc = single crochet
st(s) = stitch(es) sl st = slip stitch
fsc = foundation single crochet
Gauge: Not important for this project
Measurements: 14” long X 3” wide, excluding dangles to fit the average woman’s neck.
- Row lengths can be adjusted to fit your neck by subtracting or adding additional foundation single crochet. It is helpful to measure around your neck, and determine how loose or fitted you would like the choker to fit. Make Row 1 about an inch shorter than your neck measurement, and then add two additional foundation single crochet every two rows (i.e. 55, 55, 57, 57, 59, 59 total stitches)
- Each choker row will be separated by a ch-1, and you will have a continuous chain of foundation single crochet. Before creating the Row Connector, be sure to untwist, so that they will lay flat.
- Rather than adding an extra chain, work slip stitches immediately into the next ch, and it helps to make the last chain slightly looser. If you have a hard time working into the next chain, add one chain, and then make the first slip stitch into the second chain from hook.
- Pattern is written in US crochet terms
- If you would like to stiffen the dangles, gently wash the necklace with mild soap and cool water, squeeze of excess water. Use your favorite stiffening method, such as water + cornstarch, to dip dangles into, squeeze out excess, and then pin flat to block and stiffen dangles. Allow adequate drying times before wearing. *Stiffening will need to be repeated if the necklace get wets or washed.
- This is an example of how to block your finished Warrior Choker. It is best to use rust-proof pins.
