Loquita is a FUN spring necklace! Loquita uses the Loco stitch, which I developed for a shawl a few years back. I always wanted to incorporate beads onto it!
Loquita starts with a beaded cast on at the bottom edge of the necklace and is worked inwards so that the inside edge is smaller than the outside edge, creating a “Victorian” style collar. Beads are placed on the Loco stitch to highlight it!
