Things you need are as follows: different colors of yarn, scissors. Just two kinds of supplies you need for this project.
How to make a yarn necklace step 1: prepare the yarns

How to make a yarn necklace step 2: make the yarn patterns
First, twist yarn string around your four fingers for several times till the thickness is okay.
Second, use another strand of same colored yarn to wrap and tie the hollow yarn ball, remember to tie the ball at the middle line tightly, as though you take the strand to halve the ball.
Third, smoothen every single strand of the yarn ball, and cut the yarn strings till the lengths of yarn rays satisfies you. So the rays-looking yarn pattern is done. And then repeat the same step and make other two yarn patterns.
How to make a yarn necklace step 3: finish the yarn necklace
First, pick another color of yarn, twist five to seven yarn strings together to make a thick twisted strand; another way is take advantage of your braiding skill, just like braiding hair, to make a braided yarn pattern. Therefore your yarn chain is prepared.
Second, finish twisting or braiding; leave about eight centimeters length and tie a knot above.
