Knitted Christmas mints

Here is another project you might like.

Knitted Christmas mints

Today I will show you the one with red and green stripes.

* small amount of white, red, green DK yarn
* small amount of stuffing (cotton wool from chemist will do)

Use a pair of 2.75mm (US 2) knitting needles

Cast on 13 sts with white.
Row 1: *k1 (white), k1 (red), k1 (white); k1, (grenn);repeat *twice more, k1 (white)
Row 2-6: keeping the colour pattern correct, st/st
Break yarn, draw through the sts, pull tight and fasten off.

Sew the sides, stuff and close the cast on edges by working a gathering thread along and pull tight.


You can enjoy as decoration or how about making earrings and bracelets with them?
