I made a couple of necklaces for the craft fair a few weeks ago. I like how they turned out. I found some pendants on clearance at Michael's.
The yarn used is Key West Karibbean Kotton from The Sassy Skein.
Here is how I made the necklace.
With size f hook.
Ch 3, make 30 Solomon knots.
Join with slip stitch with first chain and the next two chains.
(*Make 2 Solomon knots. Skip one knot and sc with the next knot. * repeat around. Slip stitch with 3 sc's) repeat one more time, finish off. Put pendant around the slip stitch section.
