Get Your Glitter On! With 9 Sparkly Holiday Knitting Patterns

Holiday parties offer the perfect opportunity to don sparkly things. From statement rings to glittery shoes, nothing is off the table — including your knitwear!

Sparkly Holiday Knitting Patterns

Go glam this holiday with sparkly knitting accessories and garments.

As a knitter, there are a couple of ways to add sparkles into your stitches.  The easiest way is to use a yarn that’s already plied with glitter or beads. You can also add your own sequins and beads as you knit. Either way is guaranteed to result in some serious shimmer.

What better time to get your sparkle on than the holidays? Get inspiration and ideas from these glittery knitting patterns.
