      • Bind off loosely in knit leaving a long tail for sewing side seam.

      • Decoration:
      • Choose your favorite design then follow the chart to embroider the design on the ornament using Duplicate Stitch. Count the rows and stitches to be sure to center the design.
      • To make Duplicate Stitch, thread yarn onto a blunt yarn or tapestry needle and work one duplicate stitch over each knit stitch as shown in the chart. As with regular embroidery, do not leave knots. To start and end a color, weave it through several stitches on the wrong side of the fabric.
      • Accent stitches were made using Outline Stitch.

      • FINISHING:
      • Fold ornament with right sides together and sew sides. Turn ornament right side out and gently stuff with fiberfill. Sew top closed. Use scrap yarn to make hanger in center top.
