Pre-Knitted

Necklace Kits

Create a necklace using pre-knitted narrow wire strips.
A knitting machine is not required.

They are quick and easy and suitable for children to make.
A kit or a finished necklace makes a unique, lightweight and easy to post gift.

Pre – knitted wire necklace kits £6 each (Kit 4 is £5)

Each kit includes:

  • Pre-knitted wire strips

  • A clasp to fasten your necklace

  • Instructions

  • Glue is not supplied. I recommend a 2 part epoxy resin such as Araldite to glue the findings to the jewellery.

You can also purchase extra 50cm lengths for £1 each or longer lengths for £1.75 per metre.

Step 1 Choose your design

KIT 1 This kit contains 4 pre-knitted wire strips in up to 4 different colours. It is a very easy to work braiding pattern. I have used 4 different colours in the necklace shown here, but you could choose 2 strips in each of 2 colours.

KIT 2 This kit contains 4 pre-knitted wire strips in 2 different colours. The necklace is made by braiding 2 different colours to reveal an interesting diagonal pattern in the braiding which is very easy to work. Can also be made in 4 different colours for a woven look.

KIT 3 This kit contains 4 pre-knitted wire strips in up to 4 different colours. The necklace is made by braiding 4 different colours with an extra central twist in the braiding pattern. I have used 4 colours in the necklace shown here, but you could choose 2 strips in each of 2 colours.

KIT 4 This kit contains 3 pre-knitted wire strips in 3 different colours. The necklace is made by using 2 different techniques of braiding and folding along the length of the necklace to taper the ends of the necklace
