sweater ornament

I’ve wanted to make these ornaments for a long time. The pattern is from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. The inspiration for the Husker “N” came from my friend Christy, who has made a gazillion of these. The pattern suggests making a hanger out of a pipe cleaner and I think it’s absolutely adorable.

I’m having a hard time blogging because a lot of what I’ve been making hasn’t been gifted yet. I don’t think the recipients read my blog, but if you get one of these from me, just act surprised, ok?

stash: Red wool from the 2010 East Campus garage sale. White wool from the 2009 East Campus garage sale. Fabric for gift bag from here. Crazy that I remember all of that!

p.s. Congratulations to giveaway winner Shana Putnam!

    I think this tiny little sweater is adorable! I’m not sure my knitting skills are on par for making something so tiny! Maybe I can find a tiny mitten pattern…I could probably do that :-)

    I love the little sweater ornament and hanger! Now I want that book. I have the More Last Minute Knitted Gifts book and have made many things from it. Thanks for sharing!

    That is just great! Wish I had time to make a bunch of those. I know a lot of people who would think they are grand. I’ll have to tuck it away for next year.

    This is just what I need for next year. Thank you. I make tree ornaments every year. This year was a little crochet handbag with chocolate coins in. Crochet a square then fold up corners and stitch to make an envelope shape. Crochet chain loop on top corner and a vintage pearl button on the front, and a chain handle to hang from. I bought some cream yarn with a gold thread through, on sale a couple of years ago. For Sally – I have a great easy pattern for a mini mitten and sock.
