Stunning bead knitted amulet necklaces are knit on a size 0000 (4 ought) knitting needles. Super duper tiny needles. The beads are strung on the thread before you start knitting and then slid up as needed. Karen knit these bags one summer when her lungs wouldn’t let her play in the wool. It was a trying summer, however with her passion for knitting this kept her going. Each one is unique and the bags do have a flap so special treasures can be kept in them. Approximately 24inch beaded necklace length for ease if slipping over your head. If you see Karen out and about she might be wearing one of these type of necklaces as she has made many for herself.
