    I am afraid that I cheated when I made this. The toothpicks were just too short to work with, so I bought a size 0 dpkn (for sock knitting). It was so much fun!! and for the last row, I put it on the toothpick!

    After Row 23,leave knitting on the toothpick and glue stitches to the pick instead of binding off. Cut yarn, leaving enough to make a loop for hanging on your Christmas tree. Luv it.

    Very well done. I'm getting back into needle crafts in my 'old age' and am looking for a mini-shamrock pattern.
    Any ideas? Thanks. Ann
