New little freebie pattern

While playing around with my new small gauge loom that my Dad made me, I created this Little Stocking Holiday Ornament pattern. It's posted in the free patterns section on loomknittingdesigns.

A little more about the pattern:

Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Loom: Small Gauge with at least 10 pegs
Yarn: worsted weight scraps in two colors
Techniques covered: E-wrap, purl, turning a heel in a flat panel of knitting, gathered bind off, and sewing seems.

I provide step by step instructions for turning the heel, since it's a bit different then a regular heel done in the round. It's an interesting technique that I'm hoping to work into other patterns.

Enjoy everyone and happy holidays!
