A nylon thread necklace

Embroidery threads are not just for stitching and sewing – they have the potential to become statement necklaces using just a few techniques! Make this multi-coloured DIY necklace,  for yourself or gift to a friend.

You will need:

• Anchor Style threads in 8930 (Fiesta mix) or various colours, 315m
• Anchor Style threads in 8930 (Fiesta mix), 3m
• Tape measure
• Pair of Milward scissors
• One Milward Chenille needle (size 18)

Step 1
Cut 137 lengths of Anchor thread each measuring 2.3m. Fold the threads in half and tie using a 10cm length of thread so that they’re secured.

Step 2
Leaving approximately 10cm from the fold, then tie a knot in the threads.

Step 3
Tie 4 more knots snug up against each other. Remember to pull the threads taught when tying your knots so that they remain neat.

Step 8
Thread an additional 50cm piece through your needle and wrap it around the braids several times as to cover the knot you made previously. Tie with a double knot. Pass the needle under and pull until it feels secure. Do the same on the other end of the necklace.
