  1. I am working on this pattern now...thank you so much for sharing. I did add an extra 20 S/R's to the first 2 rows. I am using beads and a 4th row like you did with the red and white one. Getting ready for holidays using Christmas colors!

  2. Sounds good! I'd like to see a picture when you've finished.

  3. I had never seen "interlocking rings". I would like to try.
    But what size of thread did you used for this necklace? Thank you in advance.

    1. Lila, I used size 20 for this necklace. Milford thread.

    2. Thank you very much.
      I don't have this kind of thread. I'll try to fit... If ever I succeed, I'll show you the result.

    3. I'd love to see! I don't think the size of thread is too crucial, once you understand the principle, you can do it with any size thread.

  4. I finally tat 2 necklaces. You can see:

    Thanks a lot!
