Knitted & felted Christmas tree cone

This is meant to be a small thing, but the pattern is easily converted to make any size you want! Fill it with nuts or candy or leave it as is is, it makes a cute ornament either way :)

You will need:

* pair of 6.5mm knitting needles
* 4mm crochet hook (optional)
* small amount of red pure wool yarn
* scrap of white eyelash/fuzzy yarn

Cast on 8 stitches with red yarn
Knit 2 rows of stocking stitch
*Increase, knit to end of row, increase in last stitch - 10 sts
Repeat from * to * until you have 18 stitches
Cast off with white fuzzy yarn, leave a long end of red yarn for the handle

Sew up the cone. With the red yarn end, chain 20 and slip stitch in the edge of the cone to make the loop. Weave in all ends. Felt in washing machine (40-60 degrees C) along with a pair of jeans (or a towel of similar color). Shape the cone when wet, leave to dry. Tamtadam :)
