An expansion of Catie's most popular Holiday Ornaments collection, here is a great set of little sweaters -- with sparkling beads as well!
Catie writes, "These adorable ornaments are ideal tree trimmers, or use them in a centerpiece, or decorate a package for "oohs" and "aaahs".
"A perfect take-along project, thread some beads and you're good to go!"
These are wonderful!
Instructions are included for six ornaments, each measuring approximately 3 1/4" high.
You will want knitting needles of about size 5 US, and DK Weight yarn, about 30 yards per ornament. Gauge is 5.5 stitches and 8 rows to one inch. It is not crucial but it may affect the yardage required.
Catie found she needed about 400 beads to make all 6 ornaments -- she used size 6/0s. Anything that will fit on the yarn will be great -- 6/0s, 5/0s, or the 4mm cubes or megatamas.
Fun little projects! And I can see some little girls loving these. Make-believe, anyone?
And these little sweaters are perfect for summer knitting. So much better than knitting a heavy sweater or big afghan. They're ideal for "bathing suit knitting" by the lake or pool.
