Be So Fine Yarn Lisette Knit Lace Choker Necklace FREE Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl
This is such a HOT trend right now and I’m loving seeing them all over, but I have yet to see a HANDMADE knit lace choker. And I knew I needed to try it.
I knit an edging just shy of the circumference of my neck, added a magnetic closure to the ends. I thought it was safer to use magnetic closure instead of fixed closure (for sake of choking hazards). Freak accidents do happen … I feel much safer this way.
Then, I sprayed each side with starch (like you do when you iron), and let it dry. Voila! I have a GORGEOUS lace choker that is so fashionable right now!
Please enjoy this free pattern so you can make these gorgeous chokers too. Not only for yourself, but with the holidays right around the corner, they are quick handmade gifts, too!

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns! I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
