Measuring tape

Make this ruffly dangly jangly collar using netting, chain, and fringe techniques.

Step 1: Make a Victorian Chain. Begin by using a yard's length of thread and leaving a 10" tail with a tension bead attached. String 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black, 1 blue, and 3 black. Pass back through the second-to-last bead strung so that you form a pointed cap or picot on the string of beads (Figure 1).

step 2: String 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black. Pass back p. 1Q through the first blue strung in Step 1. O

Step 3: String 3 black. Pass back through the second-to-last bead strung to form a picot on the other side. String 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black. Pass back through the blue strung in the previous step.

Step 4: Rep Step 3 until you reach your neck measurement. When you attain the desired length, weave in the tail thread and working threads and trim V close to the work.

Step 5: Start a new thread at the end of the Victorian Chain. Exit from the picot bead toward the length of the chain.

Step ft String 2 black, 1 little bugle, 1 black, 1 little bugle, and 2 black. Pass through the next picot bead.

step 7: Rep Step 6 for the length of the chain. When you've reached the end, weave your thread through the beads so you exit from the black at the middle of the last net, ready to go in the opposite direction.

Step 8: String 1 blue, 1 large bugle, 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black, 1 large bugle, 1 blue. Pass through the black at the middle of the next net.

Step 9: Rep Step 8 for the length of the collar.

Step 10: After completing the last net, string 1 blue, 1 large bugle, 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black, 1 large bugle, 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black, 1 large bugle, and 1 black. Pass back through the blue at the middle of the last net created in this row.

Step 11: String 1 black, 1 large bugle, 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black, 1 large bugle, and 1 black. Pass back through the blue at the middle of the next net.

Step 12: Rep Step 11 for the length of the collar.

Step 13: When you complete the last net for this row, string 1 black, 1 large bugle, 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black, 1 large bugle, 1 black, 1 blue, 1 black, 1 large bugle, 1 blue. Pass through the black in the middle of the last net on Row 1. Pass through beads so that you exit from the first blue strung in this step toward the bulk of the necklace.

Step 14: Work very loose. String 5 black. Pass through the black, blue, black middle of the next net.

Step 15: Rep Step 14 for the length of the collar.

Step 16: Weave through the beads in the upper netting rows so that you exit the first blue and the first black bead of the previous net in the opposite direction. Work the length of the collar in peyote stitch (3 beads total for each section).

Step 17: Weave through the beads so that you turn the thread and exit from the last bead added. Work the length of the collar in peyote stitch (2 beads total for each section). You're making decreases, so for each individual section you'll need to weave your beads through the black peyote, up through the blue bead, and down through the black peyote of the next section to get to the spot where you add beads (Figure 2).

Step 18: Weave through the beads so that you turn the thread and exit from the last bead added. String 1 black and 1 blue. Pass through the black and the next-to-last bead added in Step 17. This will give you a picot. Rep this step for each section for the length of the collar. Exit from the side point of the peyote dart.

Step 19: String 13 black. Pass through the last blue strung. ^String 12 black. Pass through the blue from the next section. Rep from * for the length of the collar. For the last net, string 13 and pass back through the bead at the side point of the last peyote dart. Weave your thread through the beads so that you exit the sixth bead just strung.

Step 20: ^String 5 black, 1 blue, and 5 black. Pass through the middle two beads of the net in Step 19. Rep from * across the length of the collar. Exit from the sixth bead of the net from the previous row.

Step 21: Work loose. ^String 13 black. Pass through the last blue strung in the previous net row. Rep from * across the length of the collar.

step 22: Weave your thread through the beads so you are going in the opposite direction. Using black, work across the length of the collar in peyote stitch for 6 beads total in each section.

Step 23: Turn your thread through the beads so you are going in the opposite direction. Using black, work across the length of the collar in peyote stitch for a total of 5 beads each section, but instead of weaving up through the beads, just string 1 black between each section of peyote (under the blue of the previous row). Continue across the length of the collar.

Step 24: Turn your thread through the beads so you are going in the opposite direction. Using blue, work across the length of the collar in peyote stitch for 4 beads total in each section.

Step 25: Turn your thread through the beads so you are going in the opposite direction. Using blue, work across the length of the collar in peyote stitch for 3 beads in each section. Between sections string 1 black, 1 faceted, and 1 black (Figure 3).

Step 26: Add a clasp at the Victorian Chain level. Just sew it onto the blue beads that are at the edges. Be sure to make many stitches so that it is secure. It's best to use a clasp that has more than one anchor.
