Pirra is a stylish necklace that can be knit within a few hours, making this a perfect gift or last minute accessory. It is also a terrific way to use some of your favourite left over yarns. The pattern features colour blocking of two contrasting colours, with a third colour used to wrap the necklace.

This pattern is suitable for a beginner, the fiddly part is the construction/joining the pieces together. I have included a step by step photo tutorial in the pattern to guide you through.
