Hi!

My girls and i are involved in a handmade Christmas ornament exchange and are new knitters. We'd love to be able to knit a cute ornament to exchange with our friends in our homeschool co-op. Any suggestions?

thanks in advance.

I don't know what you know and what you don't, but these might not be too hard. They are knit flat.

Here's a little wreath which isn't hard if you learn I-cord.

I found another cute one on Ravelry, but it's only there as far as I know. I asked the designer if it was online somewhere or if I could share it. I'll get back here when I find out.

There's also a knitted ornament pattern...oh, shoot, let me see if this is the right link...http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/christmas.php Also, freepatterns.com has a bunch of cute Christmas stuff. You do have to register, but they have never bothered me with spam or anything like that.

BTW, it's always good to meet another Becky!:D

OMG - that is so cute!

I've made this, too, but there are no knitting skills involved.
http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/craft-yarnOrnament.html?noImages= They also have a crochet themed one, too.

if you go to lionbrand.com, search for ornaments and you'll get a few more, too - some that really are knit.

I know! I'm thinking of making some for all my knitter friends at my social knitting group. :yay:
