I really like the concept of nursing necklaces.
Nursing necklaces, breastfeeding necklaces, mommy necklaces – call them whatever you like, I think they are pretty cool. After all, especially with a baby in her arms, every mom want to feel pretty. But she needs something that will survive the incessant pulling and tugging. That’s why textile necklaces are such a great option. And if the right colours and materials get combined, even the baby will be able to appreciate their visual appeal while letting her tiny fingers explore the different textures.
This simple pattern can be executed in either monochromatic tones or in a range of colours from contrasting brights to coordinating pastels to soothing neutrals. Beads are an optional addition – their weight adds substance to the piece but they are not necessary.
With a knot closure, the length of the necklace can be customized. This way, the necklace can be worn with many different shirts regardless of how deep their necklines are. And the mom doesn’t need to worry about the closure snapping!

Is there a pattern for this crochet nursing necklace (pink, multi color)? My daughter had a new baby and would love to make this for her!
Not for this particular one, but I do have a pattern for a similar design (it can be really easily adapted for whatever color palette): https://jakigu.com/product/beaded-crochet-necklace-jakigu-crochet-pattern-no-501/
