Wear your knitting with pride even on hottest days of summer with this quick knit necklace design. Spanish moss inspired the loop-de-loos, while the romantic Southern city of Savannah inspired the easy lace pattern. Transform the knitwear from a casual cowl, when using the provisional cast on method, to a dressy necklace, when using jewelry clasp method. Ready in a snap, the pattern knits up in just a few hours, making this the perfect accessory for summer outfits.

The tech edited pattern is full of customization opportunities – beads, length, and width. Two methods of closing the necklace are included – a jewelry clasp method (with you tube video) and a provisional cast on method. Pattern includes written & charted directions, a glossary, and pictures. Click here for a you tube demonstration on the jewelry clasp.
