Christmas Crafting – Day 11

I have been on a knitting binge recently, which means lots of leftovers. I haven’t been feeding my family leftovers because of my knitting obsession, but rather I have a lot of leftover yarn. What do you do with the little scraps of leftover yarn? This is one project that uses leftover sock yarn. If you don’t have big feet then this one is for you. On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love made for me…Knit Ornaments.

Materials:

  • sock yarn- super fine #1
  • 2.75 mm double points
  • 7cm Styrofoam ball
  • ribbon – optional

Pattern:

  • ROW1: CO8 (on three double points, 3,3,2. Three needles are easier to manage than 4 in the beginning.
  • ROW 2: Join and K8
  • ROW 3: Increase to 16 by KFB8 (knitting front and back of every stitch)
  • ROW 4: Knit one round and divide stitches evenly to 4 needles (4 per needle)
  • ROW 5: K1, KFB2, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 6: Knit one round
  • ROW 7: K1, KFB1, Knit to second to last stitch on needle, KFB1, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 8: Knit one round
  • ROW9-16 – repeat ROW7-8
  • ROW17-28 – Knit all rounds (12 total)
  • ROW 29 – K1, K2TOG, K10, K2TOG, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 30 – Knit one round
  • ROW 31 – K1, K2TOG, K8, K2TOG, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 32 – Knit one round
  • TEST THE BALL to make sure that you can get it in, if it’s a tight fit, knit the following rounds with the ball in place. It’s easier to knit without the ball, so test after every even row until you have to force it in. Then knit the remaining rounds.
  • ROW 33 – K1, K2TOG, K6, K2TOG, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 34 – Knit one round
  • ROW 35 – K1, K2TOG, K4, K2TOG, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 36 – Knit one round
  • ROW 37 – K1, K2TOG, K2, K2TOG, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 38 – Knit one round
  • ROW 39 – K1, K2TOG, K2TOG, K1* repeat to end of round
  • ROW 40 – Knit one round
  • ROW 41 – K2TOG, K2TOG* repeat to end of round
  • Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to close with a needle and or create a braided hanger with other yarn. Or you can tread in a ribbon.

This pattern is intended for personal use only. I offer this pattern for free but I request that you do not sell it or any product made from it.
