Does anyone know how to make necklaces out of yarn? They were adjustable with a bead on the back they were made with several strands and it was not the normal yarn it was more like fancy ribbons?

I'm not certain that this is what you are looking for. Hope this helps. (11/19/2008)
Here is how I made my "yarn" necklace: I used a large wooden bead (1/2 - 3/4 inches in diameter) with a fairly large hole. I then laid out 46 inch lengths of various fancy yarns and a light weight variegated ribbon. These weren't actually yarns.They were those specialty yarns and trims. One is called "Fun Fur" eyelash yarn. I used 5 strands. It will depend on how large the hole is in your bead. I think I used a large holed needle and strung the ends in opposite directions through the bead. That way you can pull the two sides to adjust the length you want your necklace to be. I also added other types of beads at the bottom of some of the strands. I get lots of compliments when I wear it. I used a variety of colors instead of just one. I hope this helps you out.
