A knit and felt holiday ornament designs; a PDF-format.
This holiday season create a tree full of hand-knit ornaments! The pattern gives instructions for a three-color checked ornament in both a small and large size.
The ornament is knit as one continuous piece. No sewing of seams is necessary. Knitting begins at the bottom and moves up into the checked pattern, and ends with a tie off at the top. Near completion, a clear, plastic, craft-store ornament is inserted into the knitted piece and the final stitches are synched tight around the ornament’s plastic neck.
Once complete, the metal wire cap hanger is inserted into the opening at the ornament’s top -- the crowning touch!
Skill Level: Intermediate, requires double point needle experience and knitting in the round.
Materials: #4 medium worsted weight wool yarns in various colors, size US 4 double point needles, clear plastic craft store ornaments, poly-pellets for weighting the ornament (optional).
Recipe: Cheddar-Jalapeno Thumbprint Appetizers
