Project

For the Christmas Tree gifts

What are you most proud of? Discovering the i-cord loop to hang the ornaments with (also used on python necklace - see my other post). I started at the top - provisional cast on 3 st, make an i-cord of about 2.5", then picked up the stitches from the provisional start and began knitting in the round, 6 sts, quickly increasing over 6-8 rows to the number needed for the widest part of the foam egg. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make test prototypes without beads to make sure you have the right sizing for whatever wood bead or foam core you are trying to cover.

Q&A with clintonk

robinsonw994366 asked:
were is the pattern for them please
clintonk answered:
There is no specific pattern - it uses all the same principles as Betsy teaches in her craftsy class. I just choose thicker wool, larger needles and knitted swatches to test sizing until I got it right. The post above describing the i-cord loop gives you an idea of how I started. This is about adapting the principles to the materials that you have to work with. Hope that helps!
