 "Life itself is a most wonderful Fairy tale" H. Ch. Andersen 

Finished Measurements:  6.5” (17 cm) long.

Cascade 220 Superwash (100% Superwash Wool; 220 yards / 200 meters per 100g / 3.5oz) 1 skein each: color options: 211 Cocoa (MC), 870 Straw (C1), 1926 Doeskin Heather (C2).

Yardage: 10 yards / 9 meters (MC), 4.5 yards / 4 meters (C1 and C2).

Recommended Needle Size: Double Pointed Needles (DPN) US #5/3.75mm (set of 5) or your preferred needles for knitting in the round.

Notions: Yarn needle, scissors, pipe cleaners.

Gauge: 20 sts & 26 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch.

C1, C2 = Contrast Color
CO = Cast On
DPN = Double Pointed Needles
MC = Main color
St, Sts = Stitch, Stitches

The set amount of sts are knitted from one needle to a second needle, do not turn the needle with sts around, just push the sts to the beginning of the needle and knit again. This technique makes a tube.

The broomstick is created by making an I-cord with inserted folded pipe cleaner. The bottom part of the broomstick is created by cutting 40 pieces of yarn for the tassel, the yarn is folded in half and secured to the I-cord by a knot. 

With MC and DPN CO 4 sts.  
Work I-cord for 8 rows.
Bend the pipe cleaner in half and insert the pipe cleaner with the ends pointing away or toward the CO edge. 
Continue to work the I-cord around the pipe cleaner, until the I-cord is as long as the bended pipe cleaner. Cut the yarn, leaving a long enough tail, and thread the end on a yarn needle. Pull the end through the remaining stitches on the needle, gather up and close the hole, stitch to secure. 

Cut 20 pieces each of C1 and C2 approximately 8” (20 cm) long. Fold in half. Arrange the folded yarn around the I-cord handle, and secure with a knot. 
Weave in the ends.
