Create a lovely necklace in less than 1 hour using your Zippy loom! Worked with beaded cord to create a unique and gorgeous necklace.
Knitting loom: Zippy loom.
Yarn: Approx 4 yards of beaded cord. Sample used 2 spools of cord-beaded ribbon by Simplicity.
Notions: knitting tool.
Other: 2 cord end camps, 1 small lobster claw and 2 jump rings, small pliers. Matches to burn the ends of the cord to prevent fraying.
- Worked in the knit stitch.
- To add the second strand of cord, securely join both cords with a knot. After necklace is complete, trim the ends of the knot closely to the necklace and burn the ends of the cord to prevent fraying and prevent the knot from coming undone.
Leaving an 8-inch beginning yarn tail, cast on 2 stitches on the middle two pegs of the loom.
Row 1: knit to the end of row.
Row 2: Cast on 1 stitch using the half hitch cast on stitch, knit 2.
Row 3: Cast on 1 stitch using the half hitch cast on stitch, knit 2.
Row 4-10: knit to the end of the row.
Row 11: Move the stitch from peg 1 to peg 2. Knit to the end of row.
Row 12: Move the stitch peg 4 to peg 3. Knit to the end of the row.
Bind off with basic bind off method, leave an 8-inch end tail.
Note: I removed the bead cord from the beginning and end yarn tails.
Using the matches, burn the ends of the cord to prevent it from fraying.
Place and end cap at each end of the cord, securely tighten using the pliers. Connect a small jump ring to one end cap and securely tighten with pliers. Connect a small jump ring to the other end cap, before closing the jump ring, add the lobster claw to this jump ring too; securely tighten the jump ring.
