A quick, fun project to work up all kind of little leftovers. It doesn’t take a lot of yarn or time and weighs almost nothing.
There are no ugly seams to close the rings, they are worked seamlessly in the round. The pattern is written for magic loop, but it is possible to make them using double pointed needles, although I didn’t try that.
Make a bunch of them in all your favorite colors or knit a large garland to decorate a wall. They also makes quick, great gifts to your loved ones. The possibilities are endless.
Use any yarn weight you find. The samples use different colors in sport weight and fingering weight and a 2.5 mm / US 1½ needle. The diameter of a ring in the sample is about 4 cm (1½”) and it uses only 3.5 m / 5½ to 3.8 yards.
I made three necklaces in different lengths: the longest necklace measures 100 cm / 39½” and uses 31 rings, the medium one measures and uses 22 rings and the smallest one measures and uses 16 rings.

Size: that is up to you

Gauge: not important

What you’ll need
any yarn weight: little rests in one or different colors.
One element in fingering weight uses between 3 and 4 m / 3¼ and 4½ yards of yarn. A heavier yarn weight uses a little more.

Circular needle in a size to match your yarn.
Work light fingering weight with a 2 mm or 2.25 mm / US 0 or 1 needle; sport weight with a 2.5 mm / US 1½ needle (as the samples); DK weight with a 3 mm / US 2½ needle; etc …
