Knitted Icicles

Knitted Icicles

Make these cute knitted icicles: perfect for Christmas time project.

What you need

# 4 needles

bedspread weight cotton thread

1 small bead


Cast on 3 stitches, leaving the tail long enough to become half of the hanging loop.

Knit until desired length, turning always in the same direction. I turned away from me and gave the icicle a tug after every row.

This becomes second nature after a while.

Mine are 22 rows, about 3 & 1/3 inches, but icicles can be any size you want.

When you cut the thread leave the end long enough to secure the bead, work the thread through the icicle, and have enough for remaining for the other half of the hanging loop.

Now, knit all 3 stitches together, cut and pull the end through the last stitch, pull tight.

Bring the thread around the bead through the last stitch.

Work the thread up the side of the icicle securing it by looping it around a stitch, every 2-3 stitches.

Tie the beginning thread to the ending thread by looping it through itself.

Trim, twist and pull.
