I am in luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuve I tell ya. What a beautiful effect! A friend of mine knit me a beautiful beaded necklace and I love it. So I decided that this kind of necklace would be perfect teacher and mother gifts for Christmas.
This is my first one, modeled by KJ9.
The pattern is the Scallop Edge Beaded Necklace from the 101 Designer One-Skein Wonder Book. It’s knit on Patons Serenity DK Bamboo & Cotton. and size 6 glass seed beads. Took about an hour to string the beads (because needle plus yarn makes it hard to add beads) and maybe 45 minutes to knit.

I used a toggle for the clasp, which you can see in the last picture. I also crocheted five chain stitches at each end when I added the toggle, just to add a little more length, making the toggle easier to work.
Simple, yet a very satisfying quick knit.
