Puppy Toes Bauble
If you know me, you know I love my dogs. They’re not perfect. They track muddy footprints into the house all year long. And we won’t even talk about the copious amounts of hair they shed! Sometimes it’s an awful lot. But the mess is absolutely outweighed by the joy they bring to my life. Get yourself a dog. As soon as paws-sible. And then knit a Bauble to celebrate them.
Knit with fingering weight mini-skeins or leftover sock yarn, this entertaining ornament takes just an afternoon to complete.
The ornament is knit top down, starting with a rolled turtleneck collar. After finishing the increases, you’ll work just 20 rounds of stranded knitting before starting the decreases.
The bauble cover is designed to fit a 2.63" / 67 mm plastic ornament. For the last few rounds, you will be creating your stitches with the plastic bauble nestled inside the knitted fabric. For your safety, please do not use a glass ornament to create this project.
