I have been making a lot of afghans and prayer shawls lately, that take a lot of time. I wanted something quick and easy to do for a break.
I had seen a pattern for a bracelet with a loop at one end, and beads or a charm on the other end. I decided I wanted to try a necklace.
I had also seen a pattern for an elastic bookmark, where the elastic was made into a loop that you could put around the page of a book, and it wouldn't fall off. Then I decided I would make one thing for two purposes, and this is the result!
