I spin and weave and knit my words and visions until a life starts to take shape. — Laurie Halse Anders0n

Need a quick project with a bit of sparkle to chase the winter blues?  The necklace looks great paired with a casual sweater and jeans, but could easily work with a shell and blazer for the office.  

You will need:
#6 16” circular needles
1 pack of Lion Brand’s Bonbon in Celebrate - brown (A), orange (B), red (C), gold (D)
scissors
stitch marker
tapestry needle  

Gauge:
5sts = 1”
7rws =  1" 
in the round 

Stitch: Stockinette
Knit every round. 

Let’s Create!
With Color A (brown), cast on 125sts. Join circle. Add stitch marker to mark the beginning and end of each round. Work in stockinette stitch for 12 rounds. Bind off 100 stitches. Allow final 25 to remain on your needle. Cut away Color A leaving a 5” tail.

With Color B (orange) cast on 100 sts using the long tail method and then knit the final 25 stitches.  Continue in stockinette stitch for another 11 rounds.  Bind off 100 stitches. Allow final 25 to remain on your needle. Cut away Color B leaving a 5” tail.

With Color C (red) cast on 100 sts using the long tail method and then knit the final 25 stitches.  Continue in stockinette stitch for another 11 rounds.  Bind off 100 stitches. Allow final 25 to remain on your needle. Cut away Color C leaving a 5” tail. 

With Color D (gold) cast on 100 sts using the long tail method and then knit the final 25 stitches.  Continue in stockinette stitch for another 11 rounds.  Bind off all 125 stitches. Cut away Color D leaving a 5” tail.

Weave in all tails with tapestry needle.

You will note that as the necklace was worked using the stockinette stitch, the edges will curl. They will curl onto themselves, resembling a tube.

Try this same necklace in the cotton Bonbon for spring.  This is also a great way to use up leftover yarn!
