Cheerio Kits: A Knit Necklace!

Cheerio Kit and Pattern

Guess what? Copyright on the first pattern in my Patternworks Knit Jewelry Kit Club, Cheerio,  reverted back to me, and I just had to release the kit in more colors as well as in pdf format for those who have bead stashes!
Cheerio Kit and Pattern
The Cheerio kit comes in five different colors of Shibui Staccato, a strong merino silk fingering weight yarn.  I found a source of the Czech Cheerio beads necessary for this design and had a great time choosing colors that worked well together.... making kits is a little bit too much fun!

  1. I made this as part of the Kit Club and it's stunning. Any suggestion to make is longer. I am a tight knitter and there was no gauge or increased size instructions. Gave as a gift to my sister and it fits more snug that as you have pictured.

    I'm a huge fan...just finished Stereo, Juego and Lolly Pod are works in progress!

    1. I've a few ideas! One is to cast on 5 sts at each end... this will make it about 1.5 inches longer! Another idea is to find an adjustable jewelry clasp! This might work better as yours is already finished!

      Thanks! Laura
