I had left over yarn from a project and just started making an icord and kept going and going and sewed the ends together to make this convertible necklace/bracelet, headband, anklet

Don't know how I got to see this necklace this afternoon - but I fell in love.
Great work!

But ... but ... but ... 140 inches is much too long for me to knit an i-cord. I would go stark raving mad before I even had half of it done.
How did you manage to keep your sanity?

And how did you decide that 140 inches was "enough"?

But since I still would like to knit it, another question would be: is there enough weight in the i-cord to make it lie flat around your neck and hang down properly? (I am thinking about it needing some extra weight.)

I kept my sanity by doing it very slowly over a long time, and while watching tv.

140 inches because I wanted to use up all the yarn I had of this type and that just happened to be 140" I didn't want any left over.

As you can see int eh pics it does lay properly without any weight in it

I really like that as well. Great use for an i-cord. What yarn did you use? I really like it.

I'm guessing you could knit it with one of those tiny 4- or 5- prong round knitting looms... seems less sanity-compromising than actually knitting with dpns.
