Cassio is short for Cassiopeia, who is a queen in Greek Mythology... she is a bit vain, but rightly so! Look at the gorgeous necklace she made!

Cassio Collar is constructed of a beaded double-knit I-Cord . It has integrated clasps on each end and is worked in one long strand.
The pattern includes a video to help you with the clasp and beading if you haven’t worked these techniques before!

Kits for Cassio were Januaury’s shipment for Lola’s Choice (Laura’s super fun small knitted kit club).
