A extremely easy one line pattern, has innumerable possibilities, and is easily varied for increased or decreased lengths.
This pattern is worked side to side, the first β€˜row’ becoming a round, followed by row additions to add to the β€˜body’ of the necklace. Increasing or decreasing the number of rows adds to your creativity and individuality.
This necklace has been inspired not just by the cute little conch shell or β€œShankh” (ΰ€Άΰ€‚ΰ€– , Ε›aαΉ…kha) in Hindi), but also by this lovely lightly variegated yarn.
