1. Pirra Necklace by Ambah

5 knitted jewellery (jewelry) knitting patterns - read more on the LoveKnitting blog! This is The Pirra necklace by Ambah.

 

High fashion, here we come! This statement necklace uses small amounts of fingering weight yarn to create a stunning knitted necklace that will wow all your friends without weighing you down. This pattern includes detailed instructions on joining the pieces and is suitable for a beginner knitter. This project only takes a couple of hours to complete, making it an excellent choice for a last minute gift or accessory! We love Phildar Phil Coton 3 in Silver (0074), Citron (0063), Cedre (0055), and Pacifique (0060), but this yarn is available in an eye popping range of shades, so click on the image below to see them all!

For the felting fans out there, we present these fabulous felted beads. This (free!) pattern will gently guide you through the knitting and felting process, which is perfect for the newly initiated – not everyone can throw their knitting in the wash without some guidance! We love Rico Creative Filz Print, a super chunky, super bulky variegated felting yarn; check out Aqua Grey (11) and Grey Lilac (06), as seen here!   To see all of Claire Fairall’s patterns, click here.

 4. Floral Spiral pin or hair accessory, by Dawn Finney

Knitted jewelry accessories - read more on the LoveKnitting blog. This is the Floral Spin pattern by Dawn Finney!

 

These floral spiral spins can be made with any weight of yarn, assuming that the corresponding needles produce the correct tension for this simple project. May we suggest knitting these as boutonnieres for a wedding? You could knit them to match a theme and use them as corsages, hair pins for the wedding party, and pins for the parents. Think of the possibilities! We like the idea of using Cascade Ultra Pima, a DK weight yarn with a subtle shine that’s available in an unbelievably huge range of shades. We love Pansy (3779), Sprout (3740), Yellow Rose (3743), and Turquoise (3733), as seen here; click on the image below to view all available shades.

This gorgeous necklace is created with a super simple pattern that guides you through the process of learning to use beading in your knitting. Even a beginner could create this necklace in just a few hours! We can’t get enough of Rowan Truesilk, a 100% silk, DK weight yarn that really lends itself to knitted jewelry. Check out Whisper (332), Happy (334), Joy (338), or Serene (30), as seen here.

    Knitted jewellery is very pretty, though, when I knit a sweater or top, I usually attach my handmade jewellery to the neckline. I also sew in sequins and lam’e ribbon to an evening top or shrug, which look more professional. I’ve received many compliments with my knitwear.
