For this month's featured project, we've chosen the ever adorable (and FREE!) Itty Bitty Ornaments. At a micro mini size, it's the perfect use for leftover yarn - or you can grab a kit for a fully coordinated set.
Itty Bitty Ornaments - free PDF download! The pattern includes 6 ornaments: a tiny sweater, scarf, stocking, hat, pair of socks, and pair of mittens. Each ornament uses about 6 yards.
This is a great pattern to use up scraps of fingering/sock weight yarn. You only need about 6 yards per ornament - but that depends on gauge.
Or, a Hedgehog Fibres Sock Mini Skein ($11) will give you 87 yards, which should be enough for 2 of each of the 6 types of ornaments. Your mileage may vary with gauge, though.
Or, make it easy with an Itty Bitty Ornaments Kit ($16)! Each kit includes:
- 1 plastic zip top bag
- 1 Hedgehog Fibres Sock Mini Skein
- 1 set of printed pattern cards
- 10 wire ornaments hangers
