Knit a Necklace with Beaded Texture (Knitting Pattern)

Learn to knit a necklace with beaded texture for a colorful, casual, and whimsical gift.

The entire necklace is simply knitting yarn. There’s absolutely no need to purchase any extra wooden beads, clasps, or any other materials. We simply knit the bead shape texture!

I just love how versatile this necklace is, too, when using multi-colored yarn. Turn it around for a totally new look, new colors. This is definitely a very colorful, casual, whimsical necklace. It makes a great quick knit gift that your loved ones will wear with pride.
