Knit Necklace | DIY Guest Post by Manda Townsend


While I am in India, I have asked a few blog pals to share with you on Always Rooney. Today, welcome Manda and make sure you go and see her over at her blog! I love this cute DIY she has put together and it looks so simple!
Hello! I'm Manda Townsend - mother, artist, and blogger. One of my favorite hobbies is knitting. It's so soothing and therapeutic, and I just love the way yarn feels in my hands. Here's a great little DIY necklace suitable for beginner knitters. If you're just starting out, simply click the links on each stitch and watch the You Tube video for a detailed explanation. That's how I learned everything I know about knitting! Have fun!
 Materials: size 3 knitting needles, tapestry needle, white sock yarn, black sock yarn, random chain, one jump ring


Directions:
  • cast on 8 stitches
  • hold two colors of yarn together as you knit
  • slip slip knit, knit 4, knit 2 together 
  • knit
  • ssk, knit 2, k2tog
  • knit
  • ssk, k2tog
  • k2tog
  • snip yarn and pull through remaining stitch
  • weave in the two tails
  • attach the jump ring at the very top and thread onto a chain


Be sure to check out Manda's blog for other knitting patterns, diy home projects, sewing ideas, art journaling, and tons of photography!
