Holiday Gift Ideas - Chinese Coin Necklace
I set up six stitches across two 2.5 mm double pointed needles and began knitting I-cord. (Most instructions on the internet don't use three needles, but I prefer this method. For instructions on making I-cord, check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJ0s_2TBwCQ
I actually kept knitting until the small ball was used up. The resulting cord was long enough to tie a Double Chinese Coin knot in the center. I attached a simple hook and eye clasp on each end and voila! A very pretty necklace and homage to one of my favorite knots. A lovely gift for any woman on your Christmas gift list.
