Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 386 – Santorini Beaded Necklace

Although a scarf or shawl may be a more usual neckwear accessory, this necklace is definitely easier to wear in warm weather.

The color, drape and texture changes in our newest yarn Santorini work perfectly for this super quick to knit necklace. The pattern is easily customizable to any length. Add as many "beads" as you like – the necklace shown has 10 rows between "beads" but you can space them out or place them closer together.

The Yarn

58% Viscose, 42% Cotton

Santorini is the striping, space-dyed version of our popular summer yarn Sanibel. Dyed in vibrant, summery colors, the striping colorways sing – and the matte, shine and textures inherent in the yarn add depth and interest. With wonderful drape, this is the perfect yarn for a warm weather garment or accessory.

Along The Shore

Since Sanibel and Santorini are two versions of the same yarn, they work well together and substitute for each other perfectly. Our newest pattern collection, Along the Shore, has two designs combining Sanibel and Santorini, as well as many other summery designs.
