Russian netted necklace

This took 3 days as I found a knot and had to redo quite a bit. It was a homework assignment and I think it came from a Russian pattern but it could also be Ukrainian or Polish in origin. I have some books by Maria Rypan with similar work; but without the assignment I would have not been pushed to make it. It's the kind of jewelry I really like. The beads are t he small Japanese ones and the thread was Fireline 6 pound. Except for that one knot, it's very good and doesn't give me problems with knots.
