Knit a jar of olives.

My sweetheart isn’t the cupid and roses type. This wee olive-of-love suits him fine. Maybe an olive will charm your beloved too!

    Cast on 6 stitches.

    <b>Rdn 1 Slide</b> sts to other end of needle and knit into the first st cast on,
    as for an I cord, k to end

    Separate stitches onto 3 needles (2sts on each.)

    Cast on 6 stitches.

    <b>Rnd 2</b> *k1, increase 1,k1; rep from * (9 sts)
    <b>Rnd 3</b> knit
    <b>Rnd 4</b> *k 1,inc 1, k2; rep from * (12 sts)

  2. Step 2 2

    Weave in beginning tail now, while you can, leave any extra yarn inside as extra stuffing.

    <b>Rnd 5</b>-7 k
