# K into front of st and put the created st back on the needle.  Cast off 1, K1.  Repeat from # twice.  K2 tog. ^
Repeat from * to ^ to create the 2nd leaf, cut off the wool to leave 40 cm and thread this through the last stitch and down the leaf to the centre. 
Pick up a loop in the centre and repeat from * to ^ to create the 3rd leaf using the 40 cm of wool. B&T.

Making Up:
Sew up the row ends of the pudding.
Sew the holly leaves to the top of the pudding.
Use 50 cm of red wool – doubled in the needle to create 3 French knot, berries, I found 4 winds around the needle ideal. 
Substitute with red beads if you don’t like doing French knots.
