View Full Version : Christmas knitting

11-28-2006, 11:33 PM
Every year I try to do something different with name tags for the family dinner. This year I thought I would knit a little ornament or something and then put everybody's name on it and use it for a place tag. They can then take them home and hang them on a tree.

Does anyone have a pattern for simple little ornaments I could use?

What a fun idea!

I have a free pattern for a little angel (http://www.beartoes.com/patterns) (about 2" - 3" high depending on the yarn/needle size you use) that can stand up on it's own if stuff the bottoms with poly pellets or put a washer in the bottom, and then can be hung on a tree.

I also saw someone here who knit a bunch of tiny sweaters.

You could do a snowman easily! Just do a small tube in the round and run a thread and draw it up where each new snowball would start! Jean Greenhowe has a cute little snowman with top hat in one of her books. If interested I can find out which one. Her Christmas book has several cute things like a small nutcracker and such. You can see it a frugalhause (https://www.frugalhaus.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=128)
