This simple and elegant necklace works up quickly using chain sts, puff sts, and a few slip sts. It is reminiscent of a layered chain and bead necklace, but much lighter to wear. With 3 different lengths to choose from, you can pick the one that looks best on you! This pattern is written out with photos to help along the way, and a video to aid the more visual learners. This necklace looks stunning in variegated yarn, but it would also be lovely changing colors every round with 2 or more solid colors, or even just in one color.
