Petarli is a lovely little knitted necklace featuring a leafy design within an intricate lace pattern. Perfect for any season, use a lightweight fingering or lace yarn for a delicate necklace, or use a heavier yarn for a chunky version. This quick knit is a great project to use up leftovers in your stash and makes a lovely gift.

Choose from charted or written instructions – both are included for your convenience. Petarli’s lace panel is worked from the bottom up. The I-cord strands are knit separately then attached to the finished lace and fastened with a button for a stylish necklace.

This pattern has both written and charted instructions.
