Two weeks ago, I realized that I hadn't done any knitting specifically for the holidays. Last year, I made one of these Christmas ornaments and decided that I would complete the set this year and write the pattern to share with all of you.
These ornaments are simple to knit and look great in a bowl or on the tree.
Visit my Ravelry store to download the pattern for these ornaments.
Start with plain glass ornaments. These are 2 1/2 inch round ornaments.
I used Patons Brilliant from my stash but any Sport or Dk weight yarn will work nicely.
The first one has beads added to the knitting. You'll need 60 - 4 mm beads.
For this one I decided to eliminate the beads and knit 4 rows with one color and 2 rows with another color.
And this one is 4 rows of each color.
And then back to a beaded ornament. Only this time, I used silver beads and white yarn.
Christmas is still two weeks away so I still have time to make several more.
I really like the way these add warmth to the Christmas decorations in my home.
So what knit decorations are around your home for the holidays? In addition to these, I have Christmas stockings ranging from miniatures for the tree to full size to hold the presents, hot pads, and a special holiday hanging towel in the kitchen.
