A great new pattern from Catie, with delightful holiday ornaments to knit!
"These are fun projects to make! They knit up in no time at all.
"They're perfect to hang on a tree, place on a mantle, or to decorate a package or centerpiece.
"People love receiving these little cuties!"
Each ornament measures about 3 1/2" to 4" high. The pattern includes directions for little sweaters in plain, gansey, pointelle and aran styles. It also has instructions for stockings and mittens.
The originals were all done on size 7(US) needles using worsted weight yarn.
The little sweaters require between 18 and 20 yards, depending on the style. Each tiny stocking requires about 15 yards total and each mitten 14 yards -- so you see that these are perfect for odds and ends left over from other projects.
You will be aiming for a gauge of 4 stitches to 1" in stockinette, but obviously gauge is not crucial to the success of these projects. It might, however, effect the yardage required.
Fun! Grab those needles and get started -- these will be great embellishments to add to your holiday gift-giving.
