Three Loves Choker


Three Loves Choker



This choker combines three of my loves. Jewelry, Knitting, and Shrinky Dinks! I made up a bunch of pendants when I discovered Shrinky Dinks. I decided to do a knit choker, and I didn't want to have to sew buttons or anything onto it so I did a bobble closure. If you like you can omit the bobble and sew on a button.


You will need:


Worsted Weight Yarn (I used a varigated Peaches N Creme Cotton but since the knitting is narrow it striped and I liked the effect)


Size 8 needles


Tapestry needle (For weaving in ends)



Cast on 7 stitches. Knit 3, Yo, K2tog, K2. Knit One Row.


Row 1: *P2tog, leaving both stitches on needle. Purl first st again, then drop both stitches from left hand needle* end P1.


Row 2: *Slip 1 wyib, K1, then with left hand needle raise the slipped stitch over the K1, and Knit the slip st through the back loop and drop from needle* end K1.


Repeat rows 1&2 to desired length (let it stretch a little)


Ending after a Purl row, K3, (yo, K1) 3 times in next st, turn and slip 1, P5 across, turn again and slip 1 K5, turn again, and (P2tog) 3times turn again Slip 1-K2tog-Psso, K3. Knit One Row. Bind Off. Attach Charm
