Knitted xmas Decorations

I have decided to do a tutorial for knitted xmas decorations. I made these a while ago and they are brought out year after year.



The first pattern I am going to show you is for the candy cane.  This is a very simple pattern and looks very effective.  You can also choose any colour yarn that you want too.

You will need dk yarn or 4ply yarn depending on how you want it to look.  Pipe cleaner or straw.

Using 2.75mm needles (US size 2 needles) case on 40 stitches.

Cast off

Do this for twice and then you can twist your yarn around your pipe cleaner or straw as you sew it on.  You can sew on a little hanging loop or you can just hook your candy cane onto the branch of the tree.

Perfect and so simple

I will be doing free patterns for the stockings and the bauble in my next blogs so please keep a look out for them.

Happy knitting
