A extremely easy one line pattern, has innumerable possibilities, and is easily varied for increased or decreased lengths. This pattern is worked side to side, the first 'row' becoming a round, followed by row additions to add to the 'body' of the necklace. Increasing or decreasing the number of rows adds to your creativity and individuality. This necklace has been inspired not just by the cute little conch shell or "Shankh" (शंख , śaṅkha) in Hindi), but also by this lovely lightly variegated yarn.
