This necklace features a cotton cord. Pick leather cord in the drop down menu for $1.00 more. if leather cord I will switch the pendant over to the leather cord.
This decorative Portuguese knitting necklace works just like my pins but it is worn as a necklace. Length of necklace is 18 inches but can be adjusted to 24 inches.
The neckalce is made of leather cord however, if you do not like leather or prefer cotton I can easily put it on a cotton cord.
The pendant the the chain extender are made of copper covered in silver, if you have a silver allergy contact me for a custom order and I can get one made for you.
With the Portuguese style you with knit with the yarn around your neck (which can sometimes irritate your neck) or by using a knitting pin which can leave a hole in your blouse. With the necklace you don't have to poke a hole in your blouse and also serves as a necklace making it both practical and functional . I found this style of knitting due to an injury with my wrist where it hurt to much to knit English throwing style and I love this style of knitting so much better.
since you are using the pin as tension your hands stay on the needle which causes less hand movement which is easier on your hands. This style is very easy to learn, and you are also able to knit faster.
