What are you most proud of? This is the very first knitted necklace I've made! Just thinking of that is plenty to be proud of. I think what I like the best is that I've taken the very basic jewelry techniques that I've just learned recently, and applied them to something really unique. I particularly like the use of the bead caps where all the strands meet on either side; the copper color complements the colors of the yarns, and I think the caps just add a really professional finish.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't limit yourself to doing it exactly like I did-- get inspiration from your own stash of yarn leftovers. Make 10 strands, if you feel like it, or maybe make some with different thicknesses of yarns, or make cords with more than 3 stitches (I've used 5-stitch I-cords on many of my necklaces). And when you're choosing your hardware, think tonally; if your colors are on the cool side, maybe a silver or gunmetal finish would look great, where gold or copper would work better for warmer tones. And this project would also look great in a shorter length. Experiment and have fun!
