Every year I make a new ornament for my tree, and then make a few more to give away, and then write up the pattern for my readers. I didn't get around to that activity this year, but if you still have a bit of time, here's some of my ornaments from past years. All the patterns include detailed instructions with tutorial pictures when needed; all include complete supplies list, and all are FREE! Enjoy! The pattern links are embedded in each caption.
|Woodland Elves are made with supplies you may already have on hand: vintage wood spools for the body, nuts for the head and snippets of yarn for the hat. You don’t need much more than that to make a little village of these quick and easy to make elves. Directions include knitting pattern for the 3 hat sizes, supplies list and assembly directions.|
|I love making clothespin dolls and confess I’ve never made one I haven't adored! Christmas Dollies. Knitted gowns are made extra special with the addition of pearls and other embellishments. All my patterns have a complete supplies list.|
|Winter Trio, similar to the clothespin dolls above, this trio is made with pipe cleaner bodies.|
|Do you have a button collection? These Button Snowman could not be easier!|
|Christmas Pixies and Whosical Trees are perhaps the ornaments I love the most! The elves are fun and easy to make and would make a good project for young children (but might need just a little help from mom or an older sibling). The trees are sewn and ended up looking like they belonged in a Dr. Seuss book which made me love them even more.|
|Peg Angels are gorgeous with their eyelash yarn "fur" scarves and vintageChristmas sheet music wings.|
|While not a Christmas ornament, the Candy Cane Scarf is certainly Christmasy! Knit this scarf in candy cane colors for a burst of holiday cheer any time of year! Knit entirely in garter stitch, you’ll have it finished in no time.|
