My best friend is moving to the UK (from Aus) at the end of next week which makes me very sad, so I made her a necklace, which made us both happy!

I knitted up some 'rope' and tied it in a double headed carrick knot.  There are so many beautiful knots around, I think I'll make some more stuff all knotty.  It fastens at the back with a loop and a button. 
On with the pics...

I love that idea and it looks great.  Where did you learn the knot?

You did a fantastic job - well done!  I'm sure your friend was chuffed to bits.

Thanks for your kind words guys!

I found the knot on this site http://www.realknots.com/knots/breastpl.htm


There are so many out there aren't there! I've added these to the new 'knots' folder in my favourites!
