Easy Christmas Necklace Pattern


The Easy Christmas Necklace pattern works up very fast. So grab a handful of beads and you can make a fast necklace to wear yourself or make a bunch for your friend. If you want to make a bracelet instead, at step #5, pick up 7A, so you have an equal number of beads on the top and the bottom to eliminate the curve.

A = Matsuno 11/0 SL/SH Amber Rainbow
B = Miyuki 11/0 seed #11, #16 and/or #02
C = 4mm fire-polished crystal gold

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





 
1. Pick up 16A, make a circle and go forward with thread through the 1st through 7th beads.



2.  Pick up 1B, 1C, 1B, go with thread, from left to right, through the 15th, 14th and 13th A beads added in step #1 (or through the 12th, 11th and 10th A beads added in step #7).



3.  a) Pick up 1B, go with thread up through the C bead added in the last step.
b) Pick up 1B, go with thread forward through the 5th through13th A beads added in step #1 (or through the 2nd through 10th A beads added in step #7).



4.  Pick up 3A, go with thread forward through the 15th, 16th and 1st through
11th A beads added in step #1 (or through the 12th A bead, step #7, the 6th A bead, step #6, the 3rd, 4th and 5th A beads, step #5, and the 1st through 8th A beads, step #7).



5.  Pick up 6A, go with thread down through the 9th, 10th and 11th A beads added in step #1 (or through the 6th, 7th and 8th A beads, step #7). Go with thread around through the 6 A beads again and down through the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th A beads added in step #1 (or down through the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th A beads added in step #7).



6.  Pick up 6A, go with thread up through the 3rd, 4th and 5th A beads added in step #5.




7.  Pick up 12A, go with thread up through the 6th A bead added in step #6 and the 3rd, 4th and 5th A beads added in step #5. Continue with thread forward through the 1st through 4th A beads just added in this step.






8. Repeat steps #2, #3 and #4.

10. To add clasp, pick up 3A, clasp, 3A, go with thread up through the 7th and 6th A beads added in step #7. Continue with thread around through the clasp beads several times, weave in and end thread. Repeat in the same manner on the other end after removing the stopper bead.
