Quick & Easy I-Cord Christmas Ornaments
Nothing says Christmas like the humble Candy Cane. This is a great project to do with older children who are interested in learning to loom. Each candy cane can be made in under 15 minutes. Follow the easy tutorial below.
1. Make an 8 inch i-cord on the loom (any loom is fine, the large plastic looms were used to make the above samples) Use Super Bulky Yarn, Wool Ease thick and quick (Red Beacon) was used in samples.
Foundation Row: E-wrap Cast on 3 pegs.
Row 1: Knit peg 1, knit peg 3, knit peg 2.
Repeat row 1 until knitting is 8" long, then bind off.
2. Thread your cast off tail through a yarn needle and thread your end through the back of the knitting, coming out where you would like the bend of your candy cane to be.
3. Secure the bend in your candy cane by going back and forth between the sides twice. Secure and weave in your end.
4. Add a quick hanger by threading a piece of yarn through your knitting and tying a knot at the end. Adorn them with a bow or wind colorful yarn around plainer colored canes securing as you go by threading the yarn through loops on the back.
TIP: These would be really cute made into a garland!
Enjoy the Holidays and Happy Looming! Thank you for reading.
