Lace Christmas Ornament

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round, on double pointed needles
  • SSK

Pattern Description:

This is a beautiful, lace-covered ornament that is deceptively quick to knit! With it's lovely spiral pattern, and your choice of a "halo" yarn, or something with more shimmer, this really is a special gift! These are also very lovely set in a bowl.

Afraid of giving or using the glass ornaments? No problem! Michael's carries a plastic one that looks the same as glass! Have some globes that are starting to lose their shimmer? This is a great cover-up for them! Perfect for a novelty yarn destash, as well....the smaller size uses only 15 yards of lace or fingering weight yarn.

Available in 2 sizes: 2 1/2" and 3 1/2".

The last 4 photos shown aren't the exact same pattern....but they do show how the ornament looks, knit up with different yarns! This pattern is very forgiving. In fact, a couple of the ornaments shown, above, were made when I first designed the pattern, and I goofed it up! Can you tell? No one else will be able to.;)
