Namaskaram - salutations I dedicate my blog to the enormous art lovers across the globe I love knitting so much that I have started a blog for knitting.Knitting is a job that I will like to go on.Through knitting I breathe life into many people's life. It is knitting time. When I want to relax I do it with knitting. I am a knitting buff.I love to do knitting on various topics. There is no way that you can stop me doing knitting.I am born with a flare for knitting.My face brightens once I touch the knitting needs.The electronic media has helped knitting to travel across the world.Every stitch made will talk about how knitting has influenced people.I have done some and would like to share it with you. Some patterns have been taken from free knitting sites. Some designs have been created by me. Many a times I have modified the patterns to suite my requirements. Finally I can say that I breathe knitting, I talk knitting, I walk knitting - a total knitaholic

Sudha's Ganesha Necklace

Hi Friends,
This necklace  was knitted for my friend Sudha who is in Baharain. I gifted to her to adorn her Lord GANESHA idol.
The pattern of this necklace

Any color left over wool
Necklace string
Size 6 knitting needles

Cast on 1 stitch
knit the next row
Increase one stitch - 2 sts
knit the next row
increase one st in every st - 4 sts
knit the next row
increase one st in the first and last st - 6 sts
knit the next row
knit all rows - garter stitch for one meter
then decrease 2 sts at the first and last st - 4 sts
knit the next row
decrease 2 sts - 2 sts
knit the next row
decrese 1 sts - 1 st left - cut yarn and pull throw one stitch. Leave enough yarn as it will be required to attatch to the necklace string.

Now braid the one meter length as per below picture

Attach the below necklace cord [picture below] to the braid

Now paste the below embelishments to the braid

Now the necklace is ready after stitcging the cord to the ends of the brais and with the help of fevicol fabric glue paste the embelishments on to the braid. Now you have a very beautiful necklace

Hope every body likes this piece
