Pattern: Ornament that Rocks!
Yarn: Socks that Rocks, lightweight (shown in color Jingle Bell Rock) or mediumweight (shown in color Hollyday) (note: didn't seem to really matter too much if used lightweight or mediumweight, so get out all those leftover sock yarn bits!)
Needles: size 4 circular for magic loop
Materials: marker, 2" styrofoam balls
Cast on 10 stitches. Place marker and join, being careful not to twist (the pattern is knit in the round).
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: Knit into the front and back (kfb) of every stitch. (20 stitches).
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: (kfb, k2) 6x, kfb, k1. (27 stitches).
Row 5: Knit.
Row 6: (kfb, k3) 6x, kfb, k2. (34 stitches).
Row 7: Knit.
Row 8: (kfb, k4) 6x, kfb, k3. (41 stitches).
Rows 9-17: Knit.
Row 18: (k2tog, k4) 6x, k2tog, k3. (34 stitches).
Row 19: Knit.
Row 20: (k2tog, k3) 6x, k2tog, k2. (27 stitches).
Row 21: Knit.
Row 22: (k2tog, k2) 6x, k2tog, k1. (20 stitches).
Row 23: Knit. Put knitting around styrofoam at this point (or else it may not fit over it as you continue to decrease). It is a bit tricky knitting around the styrofoam, but just two rows left!
Row 24: (k2tog, k1) 6x, k2tog. (13 stitches).
Row 25: k2tog, then bind off until 3 stitches remain (for the last bind off stitch you will only knit one stitch).
Knit a 4-inch i-cord with the 3 remaining stitches. Bind off. Weave the i-cord in to make loop at the top of the ornament. Seam the bottom of the ornament at the cast-on edge. Make a bunch more!
