Statement Piece: Necklace

There’s nothing I love more than DIY and more importantly — DIY on a Dime!!! 🙂 I happened to stop by one of my favourite fashion bloggers tonight and found that she’d used knotting to create an awesome statement piece.  If you’ve ever made friendship bracelets as a tween/teen, you can make this.  She was even more gracious and created an instructional video on how she did it. 

For the fibre artists out there who can’t be bothered to wrap the material, doesn’t it look like garter stitch?  In my mind, another easy way to achieve the look is to knit 4 – 6 rows, fold the fabric into a tube and stitch the back tightly.  Then work the ends the way she did.  Or … wouldn’t it be awesome to make this with yarn using i-cords.  Owweeee!!!!  😀

This is definitely something I’m going to try in the near future.  I already have colour combos in my mind.   Can’t you see this with a long sleeve tee or a light sweater in the fall?!!!  And it’ll totally rock in bright colours during the drab days of winter!!!!

You betta work!!!!  😀
