What is a lariat anyway? According to ezinearticles.com, it is unlike a typical necklace, a Lariat does not have a clasp; rather, it is characterized by one long strand that can be tied or wrapped in a number of ways to create a variety of looks.
I bought some nice Fall-colord yarn last week and found this free pattern on Mode Dea - a great yarn website. I had enough left over to also knit the matching capelet. I decided that it looks best together, so it's now for sale on my etsy shop as a set.
Don't be stressed; be blessed.
