Knitted Christmas Decorations
The ones in the picture use two strands of double knit together to make a chunky yarn and 6mm needles but you could use double knit yarn and 4 mm needles to make smaller trees.
Make a loop.
Row 1: Inc.(see below)
Row 2: Inc. in both stitches
Row 3: Knit all the stitches

*Row 5: Increase in the first stitch, knit to the last stitch, inc.
Row 6: Knit all the stitches

*Repeat these three rows until there are 16 stitches*
Cast off 5 stitches, knit 6, cast off the remaining stitches. Cut the yarn and feed it back through the loop - pull tight.
Join a new colour to the remaining 6 stitches.
Knit 4 rows.
Weave in ends.
Sew on decorations and either peg or tie onto strings.
Inc. - Knit into the front of the stitch, do not slip the stitch off the needle, put the needle back into the stitch and knit it again to make another stitch.
