Aril is the proper name for the each of the edible, densely
packed, gem-like seeds of a pomegranate. This pattern uses
linen stitch and beads to create a simple yet spectacular

The necklace is knit from the tip up in a modified slipped linen
stitch, with increases at the beginning and end of each row.
Each slipped stitch is accented with a pre-strung bead. The
bound-off edge has beads placed with a crochet hook, and metal findings complete the necklace. The necklace’s size is easily adjusted; I suggest laceweight yarn with at least 50% silk for its strength.

You will need about 400 beads and 25 yards of laceweight yarn, as well as chain, a clasp, and two jump rings.
