Cabled Globe Ornament by Eunny Jang
Handmade ornaments are the perfect way to show off your knitting skills without a big time commitment! Even with the cables, you could have this quick pattern finished in an afternoon. Work up the ornament using the fat cables as shown in the pattern or customize with any narrow pattern that looks nice repeated.
Snowflake Ornament by Katie Himmelberg
Capture the beauty of fresh snowfall with the glimmering Snowflake Ornament. This one skein pattern is perfect for a little bit of yarn you’ve been saving. When creating this pattern Katie went for a more rustic version of her mother’s crocheted snowflakes, but added a touch of delicacy with a crochet edging. If you can chain and single crochet, you will have no problem adding this useful edging.
Poinsettia Ornament by Erin Hallstrom
If you are looking for a unique handmade gift in a pinch try the Poinsettia Ornament. These knit flowers will brighten up your holiday décor, and make great additions to trees, wreaths, and all around the home. You may want to grab some extra yarn before starting this project, once you’ve made one we know you’ll want more!
Knit Father Christmas by Ann Budd
This design was originally created by Kate Buck for Piecework magazine. Ann Budd was immediately inspired when the doll showed up in the office; she knew she had to re-create the design. This Christmas knitting pattern has vintage charm and perfectly placed knitted details, giving this project all the bells and whistles it needs to make a great (and impressive) gift.
Celestine by Norah Gaughan
This dodecahedron star makes a beautiful tree topper or a fun and uniquely shaped toy for boys and girls of all ages. Knitting Christmas decorations can really help get you into the spirit, and this pattern is perfect for getting you started. Work this star-shaped pattern as a knit gift, or, if you’re feeling indulgent, knit one for someone very special—yourself.
Chubby Socks by Lynn Gates
Take Christmas decorations to the next level with this stocking pattern. Stockings are a holiday classic, and the best ones are handmade by someone special. Beginning at the top with a corrugated rib, this pattern is worked up much like a regular sock—but it just holds more goodies. Bring a little extra holiday cheer to someone’s home—perhaps your own, with this beautiful knit Christmas stocking pattern.
