Zarah Mosaic Necklace
Short Description: Inspired by both the modern revival of woven necklaces and the original ethnic versions that sparked the trend. Zarah Necklace is a perfect project for those small amounts of gorgeous fingering weight leftovers. Mosaic knitting - so much simpler than it looks, edged with i-cord and finished oﬀ with a cute tassel. Go crazy with your brightest colors for this statement piece, or tone it down for an earthy look. Simple enough to knit up in a few hours, why not make one to gift as well? A lovely project to try some new techniques out.
