Pirra by Ambah O'Brien is a stylish necklace that can be knit within a few hours, making this a perfect gift or last minute accessory. It is also a terrific way to use some of your favourite left over yarns and can be knit in a DK or worsted weight yarn such as Cascade 220 Superwash. The pattern features colour blocking of two contrasting colours, with a third colour used to wrap the necklace. Pirra is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning moon. The circle and crescent shapes in this necklace remind me of the full and waxing/waning moon.

This pattern is suitable for a beginner, the fiddly part is the construction/joining the pieces together. I have included a step by step photo tutorial in the pattern to guide you through.
