Project Instructions


About 30 in. (76 cm) circumference


Exact gauge is not essential for this project.


Cut a 20 in. (51 cm) length of yarn and set aside. Cut remainder of ball into 5 equal lengths. Cut 10 additional strands of yarn the same length.

With needle and thread, sew all 15 lengths together at one end.

Twist and loosely braid the strands. Sew ends of strands to previously sewn ends to form Necklace.


Wrap the yarn length you set aside around the Necklace to cover the sewn ends. With sewing needle and thread, sew the ends of the wrap to secure.


After braiding and twisting the yarn strands, use a binder clip or clothespin to hold all the strands together. Once you’re sure you like the arrangement, sew the ends permanently together!
