This is a great stash buster project.  These are fast to make if you have experience knitting, and even if you are just learning, these really will not take you long to make.

Notes:  M1 R : Use this as a right side increase that slants to the right:

Insert the right needle from the front into the side of the stitch below the next stitch on the left needle, lift it onto the left needle and knit it.  See photo below
