Cable Braided Necklace

Pattern: Cable Braided Necklace by Olga Buraya-Kefelian
Yarn: Wolf Creek Wools Superwash Merino Tencel, leftovers from Ulmus
Needles: US4 Clover Circulars
Notes: I tried this pattern on a lark mostly to try to understand the "braiding." It took no time to knit although I did run out of yarn and had to rip one strip back and then reknit the ends of both strips. Mine have only 15 repeats each. Then I stitched the ends together while weaving in ends and crocheted a button loop. The button is from the depths of my button box. This is a great use for all those little bits of sock yarn we knitters seem to have so much of.

This would make a neat bracelet, too. (And use up even shorter leftovers)!
