Basic Easy Net Necklace - Free Pattern

The Basic Easy Net Necklace pattern is a very basic and easy necklace to make. It has been done over the years in many variations based on this very basic net stitch. The nice thing about this pattern is that even though the pattern is easy, it is also very pretty to wear. Add crystals at the drop and then your necklace will sparkle. 

A = 11/0 seed bead, main color
B= 11/0 seed bead, 2nd color




Start by waxing and stretching your thread, use Nymo or C-Lon and  #11 or #12
beading needle. Tie in a "stopper" bead, leaving about an 8" tail and begin at step #1.








1.
Pick up 6A, 3B, 4A, go with thread up through the 1st A bead (of the 4A) just added in this step.






2. Pick up 3B, 5A, go with thread up through the 1st A bead added in step #1.






3.
Pick up 7A, go with thread down through the 2nd A bead added in step #2.






4. Pick up 1A, 3B, 4A, go with thread up through the 1st A bead (of the 4A) just added in this step.







5. Pick up 3B, 5A, go with thread up through the 4th A bead added in step #3.







6. Continue necklace by repeating steps #3, 4 and 5 until the necklace fits.





7. To add clasp, Pick up 4A, clasp, 4A, go with thread up through the 3 A beads in necklace. Continue with thread around and through the clasp beads several times. Weave in and end thread. Repeat the clasp directions in the same manner on the other end after removing the stopper bead.
