Technique for Making a Two Color Sports Necklace

Two color twisted, rope style sports necklaces are very popular with sports fans of all ages.  From kids to pros, from the tailgating lot to on the field, fans and athletes are wearing sports necklaces in their team colors. The great news is sports necklaces are super easy to make.
