Eight is Enough

Here are 8 little sweater ornaments - I have yet to put the "hangers" in them. I whipped these up while subbing this week. Easy, quick and now I have enough between these ones and ones I've made in the past to decorate our Christmas wreath when we get it.

I used the Minutia patterns as inspiration but really just created these from my own head. It's fun to play with cables and yarn overs to make the sweaters more interesting.

I'm working on the Farmer's Market Cardigan right now but it is only stockinette so not worth photographing at this point.

Have a great weekend!

I've always admired that pattern. Are hangers available anywhere?

Sara, I couldn't find hangers but I have some green floral wire that I bend into a sort of hanger shape. It's a pain but it works.

adorable sweater ornaments! I can't believe you did it while subbing! I subbed 1.5 days & couldn't sit down...let alone knit! You must know what you're doing!
