Looking for a quick to knit and dazzling accessory for a holiday party? Look no further!

This extra long, sparkly knitted lace cord (with fringe!) is perfect for you (or an amazing gift for a friend).

Only 8 rows of knitting…with many ways of wearing - as a necklace, headband, belt or necktie.

Thanks to Georg-Anne for naming this pattern!


  • Gauge is not particularly important
  • Length of fringe and cord can be shortened or lengthened
  • This yarn is incredibly sparkly and bright - the pictures do not do it justice
  • Other novelty yarns may be used, though ones with sequins are the most dramatic
  • Cast on using stitch markers will help keep track of the number of sts
  • Use a wood or bamboo needle to grip the yarn…it can be a bit slippery at times.
