Nope, I am not losing it and know it is a tad too early to wish you a merry Christmas, but a new and christmassy pattern of mine was released in the newest Knit Picks collection Merry Knitmas.
The collection offers a variety of patterns to beautify your home for the holidays such as ornaments, stockings or home decor items. My contribution to the collection are Tiny Hearts.
The Tiny Heart Ornament is knit in the round from the bottom up, starting with a Circular Cast On, with stranded motifs worked on front and back. At the top, stitches are divided and continued separately to form heart arches.
The pattern includes eight different motifs: bell, snowflake, Christmas tree, reindeer, heart, couple, star and snowman.
For each heart, there are only a few gram of yarn needed. In fingering weight yarn the size is about 6.25 cm (2.5") heigh and 5 cm (2") wide at widest point.
As an optional finishing touch, a contrast coloured thread can be woven loosely around the outer edges of the ornament, and also form the hanger.
They are done so quickly, why not make them all to decorate your Christmas tree or as a small gift for your loved ones?
