Fan Wine Glass Charms

Wine Glass Charms
Needle Size: US 3
Yarn: Sock Yarn Scraps
Gauge: Doesn't Matter
Other Materials: Wire hoops from craft store. One end already had a closed end so I just bent the other end to make a "hook" to close around glass stem.
Pattern: CO 9 ( I used long-tail) leaving an extra long tail
R 1 :and all subsequent odd rows thru R 7 Knit all stitches
R2 :K2, SSK, K1, K2tog, K2 ( 2 sts decreased)
R4 : K1, ssk, k1, k2tog, k1
R6 : ssk, k1, k2tog
R8 : sl 1 kwise, k2tog, psso, fasten off last loop
Use bound off tail to make a small loop for sliding onto metal loop. Use extra long tail from cast on to crab stitch or single crochet along bottom edge to firm it up and make it a bit more like a decorated fan.
