There's nothing we knitters like more than keeping up with trends. I can't tell you how many times one of our customers has come into The Yarn Company with a phone camera shot of the latest Bergdorf scarf

Glitz! Glamour! Grace!

There's nothing we knitters like more than keeping up with trends. I can't tell you how many times one of our customers has com into The Yarn Company with a phone camera shot of hte latest Bergdorf scarf, or a celebrity clipping of a hot new cardigan, with the express desire to imitate their findings at a more reasonable, handmade cost. Our pattern designer Mercedes is so skilled that she can look at a picture and either knit or crochet an exact copy, so when we received this beautiful yarn from Tahki Stacy Charles, we charged her with knitting up some vintage-style jewelry - I love vintage jewelry because it is always in!

We just received Crystal from Tahki and couldn't wait to knit it up. This is a truly glam yarn. It's studded with shimmering sequins and is light as air when knit, so it is perfect for jewelry.

I personally just finished watching a lot of Boardwalk Empire on HBO (great new show!), so I know that the hottest thing around people's necks right now is the long, lightweight, stranded necklace.

 

This is the character Lucy from the show, wearing a silver metal version of the type of necklace worn during the 20s and 30s.

The second this show hit the air last year I started seeing a lot of actresses wearing the same kind of necklace on the red carpet. I don't know if I'm just suffering from a case of *Baader-Meinhof, but I'm seeing this necklace everywhere! (*The Baader-Meinhof phenomenon is defined as seeing or hearing something one time, then finding that you are suddenly seeing/hearing that thing everywhere. It's kind of like the Starbucks phenomenon.)

We love the look of this necklace, especially for the spring and summer months. The Yarn Co. carries Crystal in four beautiful shades: Silver, Black, Gold and White, which makes it perfect for any occasion - black for a night out on the town, silver for a laid back day, walking around the city - you name it, Crystal is great for any occasion.

This necklace was super easy and fast to make - it took Mercedes about an hour! She added a cute rose button to use as a closure, but I think you could get away with just making it really long and looping it around a few times. Once she made that, we decided it was time to really get into the vintage jewelry thing and make some more

pieces, so she both knit and crochet these bracelets, earrings and necklace using Tahki Crystal and Katia Gatsby.

As soon as I saw her knit jewelry, I scooped up a Black Crystal of my own to make a necklace for my sister, my mother, my boyfriend’s mother and myself. It doesn't take a lot of yarn, so I'm pretty sure I can get away with using one skein for all four, but if it isn't enough, well...
 
I could always use a pair of earrings and a bracelet, right?

If you're interested in taking a class with Mercedes to learn how to make any of these jewelry pieces, please contact The Yarn Company at 212-787-7878 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We look forward to making you glamorous!

Happy Crafting!
