Isabella’s Necklace is a quick knitted lace necklace with beads. The necklace is knitted back and forth ending with a knitted-on edge.
The beads may be placed however you prefer. I’ve charted how I placed them in the example.
Measurements: 38 cm/ 15 inches circumference. You can easily stretch it a little more when blocking.
Level: Experienced (due to the various techniques, but I think it could be perfect if you want to learn to place beads too).
Skills needed: Simple lace knitting, placing beads.
Supply: I usually find my supplies on Etsy (pendants, gemstone beads, sterling silver beads, satin ribbons etc.)
