stitch PATTERN for boho christmas tree ornament
Cast on 16 sts.
Knit as follows:-
Rows 1 - knit
2nd Row - k to last 2 sts, k2tog
Repeat row 2 until you have 3 sts left.
k3tog and pull yarn through.
Cast off and weave in ends.
I added the fringes to the bottom edge.
Cut 14 x 2.5" strands of yarn.
Fold and place folded end through the edges of the casted on stitches (bottom of Christmas tree), with your crochet hook. Pull the ends through and push the knot firmly against your fabric.
Trim the ends.
to wrap it up:
Work a piece of cotton (approximately 8") through the top of the tree and thread a bead through both pieces of yarn.
Secure with a knot and pull the bead over the knot. This will secure the knit and the knot will not be visible.
You have completed one knitting project for Christmas.
The ornaments will make lovely Handmade Chirstmas gifts for teachers, co-workers and neighbours.
