Dimensional Spines and Tassels Necklace
The directions come both charted and written but chart reading is definitely a plus.
Good odd/partial ball stash buster…Just a little yarn, some basic lace knitting stitches, and a coulple hours will make these gorgeous and unique necklaces that look wonderful with any outfit casual to formal and they make great last minute gifts too.
Unusual dimensionality and sculptural qualities make for an eye catching conversation starter - I have lots of these and wear them with everything! They never fail to attract notice and compliments! I’ve gotten a custom order request nearly everytime I’ve worn them out too!
Free pattern support always available, just ask!
Approx. 65 yards of Heavy Worsted Weight Yarn or Light Bulky– any and all types look great – solids, tonals, self stripe, fuzzy, metallic, novelty, textured, etc…. Have fun play around, add beads, shells, charms or ribbons in place of tassels! Limitless ways to individualize and make it ‘yours’ - they go fast and you’ll want to make more!
