Arm Knit Necklace

A FREE Darn Good Yarn Pattern

I recently designed the next pattern for Darn Good Yarn (kit coming soon) and I had a little recycled silk sari ribbon left over. I decided to use it up and make a little free pattern bonus to go with the pattern.

This necklace is quick and easy to work up and fun to make. Also a great way to use up those scraps you just can’t bear to part with.

To make this necklace you will need to know how to arm knit. I recommend this video. It is the easiest one I have seen.

Optional Finish:

  • You can add beads in any fashion you like and either tie your tails in a knot or add jewelry findings to give the necklace a more polished look.
  • I did my beads in two different ways. For the three strand necklace I simply strung on three beads (going through each strand) and tied a knot in between. I then took a couple scrap pieces of ribbon and tied a long knot in between each bead.
  • For the six stranded necklace I strung a bead using only 2 strands, tied all 6 strands together and repeated for 2 more beads.
  • I chose to add jewelry findings to my necklaces for a polished look. Be sure to measure where the necklace will lie before finalizing placement of findings.
  • Wear your new recycled silk sari necklace and enjoy.

*Disclaimer-  I was inspired to make this arm knitting necklace from a picture I saw of Vickie Howel, wearing an arm knit necklace during a demonstration on arm knitting at the CHA conference in January.  I have just been informed that she has also released a pattern for an arm knitted necklace.  I have not seen this pattern so I do not know how similar it is.
