With a donut as a focal point, this beaded i-cord necklace explores the elegant simplicity of knitted jewelry. Worked from the bottom up, the cast on is wrapped around the donut integrating it seamlessly into the design.
I've shot a video for the cast on as it is quite unique and not the easiest to explain with words. I devised the cast on by futzing and ripping and trying again with the donut and my yarn and needles until it looked perfect and then recreated that for you! The pattern includes a link to a private YouTube video that will make it all clear in a jiffy!
The donut I used is from Jul Designs, it's called Cinnamon Ring, and is from their shawl pin collection. I spent a fair amount of time at TNNA drooling in their booth and it is one of the goodies I came away with! I also have a turquoise donut I am dying to use that we got when we were in Albuquerque last spring... I'm just waiting for the perfect yarn for it!
