When you're faced with sticky heat and stifling humidity resulting in your brain starting to shut down when you're contemplating bigger, maybe more complicated or wool-ier knitting projects, it's time for a super easy and gratifying project like the Wildflower Sailor Necklace. I made mine in about an hour! You'll need one of our Wildflower Sailor Necklace Knit Kits, size US 11 needles and a few other notions like fabric glue and a toggle clasp.
The Wildflower Sailor Necklace is made with Knit Collage's Wildflower, a yarn made of strips of cotton voile fabric that's handmade in India. For this project, you're basically just knitting i-cords and then transforming them into a really stylish and unique necklace (in my humble opinion). Do you know how to knit an i-cord? Or, just choose one of a whole slew of available videos showing you this technique! An online search for something like "how to knit an i-cord" should do the trick.
The Wildflower Sailor Necklace is definitely not your typical knitting project. I actually don't think I've ever knit a necklace before making this one. But, sometimes it's a whole lot of fun to get outside of your usual knitting routine and make a pretty new accessory. That you can wear within hours of starting it. How many knitting projects can you say that about?!
I actually have quite a bit of yarn leftover and should be able to make another one. You know, because it's never too early to start making holiday gifts!
