Yarn Ball Neckace

This is a great project for children to make for their mom or grandmas for a gift. The knitter’s pendant is just string wrapped around a bead and glued in place. A simple project that offers great results. What knitter wouldn’t love it?

Knitter's Necklace Materials



Insert Head Pin into bead

Start by inserting the head pin into the bead.  Next, cover the bead in glue and start to wrap the bead in string/yarn.


Wrap Yarn

Wrap the bead until it is completely covered including the bottom to cover the head pin.

Glue Yarn

Cut the string and secure the cut end with glue. Set aside and let dry.

Cut Toothpick

Now, cut the toothpick in half.  On the cut end glue the bead with the large hole.  Do this to both pieces of toothpick, this will make the two knitting needles.

Once all the glue is dried, using needle nose pliers, bend the head pin into a loop and wrap the remaining wire around it to make a pendant bail. Then stick the toothpick needles in to the yarn wrapped ball. Hang it on a necklace and gift to your favorite knitter.
