The first necklace in the Twisted and Twirled Crochet necklace series is made using the spider stitch. It has 3 1/2 twists in it, which makes each round go completely around the border of the necklace, so all the edges look the same. This fun necklace can be worked up in no time with less than 50 yards of fingering weight yarn.
