Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on stitches
  • knit & purl
  • knit in the round
  • increase stitches
  • knit two stitches together

Pattern Description:

This darling mini sweater ornament is knit in the round from the top down. In one or two evenings you will have a special keepsake ornament for your tree....or a memorable gift. This handmade ornament makes a great gift for your aunt, cousins, neighbors, special teacher, or your dear friends.

Choose yarn colors and one of five duplicate stitch designs to suit the recipient.

If you know how to knit, purl, increase & decrease stitches, and knit in the round, you can make this keepsake ornament. If you are a beginning knitter who has had success and is ready for a challenge this would be a good pattern to try because you won't invest a lot in yarn or time. (It might help you decide if you are ready to tackle a full size sweater!)

This pattern includes FIVE charts for the heart, joy, tree, sailboat and "ho ho" designs to customize the front of your mini-sweater. If you have never done duplicate stitch before (this is how you add a design after the basic knitting is completed), the pattern includes detailed step-by-step instructions...with lots of photos!

BONUS - HOW TO MAKE WIRE HANGER INSTRUCTIONS: Make a cute little wire hanger to use to hang the mini sweater on the tree! The pattern includes a detailed one-page instruction sheet with 16 photos to walk you through how to make a wire hanger. You will need wire and three tools: needle nose pliers, round nose pliers and wire cutters.
