A new design went live on the Lion Brand website today. It’s for a spool knitted Celtic Interlace medallion necklace.
A very beautiful Celtic Interlace necklace, even if I say so myself….
Since the pattern went live,
people have been saying:
Have you seen this? It looks just like one of your designs!’
And, with a grin that
reaches all the way round…
I have been responding:
‘Why yes! I have seen it…. and yeppers… it IS one of mine!’ LOL!

Spool knitting works beautifully for making jewelry, and I have designed lots of wearable pieces in spool knitting.
It was a pleasure to design these necklaces for Lion Brand. I used their ‘Vanna’s Glamour’ yarn, which is very springy and stretchy, so it works well for making lightweight, very comfortable jewelry. The touch of glitter in them is great, and I like that it is really soft, and not scratchy, like some metallic yarns.
Because of the flexibility of spool knitting, you don’t need fittings or closures for the necklace.
If you want to add beads, you can certainly do that, too…
I also wrote an article for Lion Brand about spool knitting, too:
One lady wrote to me, after reading the article and asked exactly what spool knitting is, and how is it done.

Happy Spool Knitting!
