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:
Article about Spool knitting on Lion Brand Site
One lady wrote to me, after reading the article and asked exactly what spool knitting is, and how is it done.

How exciting! The necklace is beautiful, Noreen.
Thank you so much, Cherie! 🙂
I enjoyed the spool knitting tutorial and had fun doing the project with my granddaughter; however, I can’t seem to make the knot and get it to stay in place when sewn at the points of joining. Did you enlarge the knot in order to fit it all in? I desperately want to make this as a successful project for two of my granddaughters I visited for Thanksgiving. Please advise me how to proceed.
Did you enlarge the pattern to fill the entire page when you copied it? That’s important to do.
Also, did you use the yarn that is suggested in the pattern? If you substituted another yarn, you may have to tweak it, as you will get a heavier cord with a thicker yarn. (Some readers did this and then wondered why it didn’t work.)
🙂 Hope you can adjust it so yours works for you. 🙂
