Beautiful Projects – Holiday Knits

by Sarah Stanfield December 22, 2015


I can’t believe its nearly the end of the year already! If you’re a knitter who celebrates Christmas I hope you have your feet up and are relaxing with some selfish knitting surrounded by a pile of finished gifts….ha! Unlikely, but just in case, here are some lovely Christmas knits to make you feel festive. 

You might still have time to make one of these! Ysolda’s Last Minute Stockings pattern is quick one in chunky yarn. I love these versions made by alicewangyiwen who used some amazingly neat duplicate stitch for the initial, heart and tree at the top.

This Ripley hat was knit by Jejune as a gift, and the contrast lace edging is so effective!

This looks like an epic project! Otismurph used the Last Minute Stockings pattern as a guide to knit them up for her whole family. She has great notes with all the details of her modifications in case you’d like a similar looking fireplace next year.

This is such a lovely project – Lexxy knit an Elijah for each of her children and gave them cute distinguishing features to suit each child. From left to right say hello to Julia, Noah, Tufty and Snowball!

SnowWhiteMama’s lovely Cadeautje have been on the blog before, but they are so incredibly festive I had to show them again! She knit the pair in the middle for her husband so he wouldn’t be left out of their annual tradition. Her notes have some really helpful notes, and a lot of adorable excitement as she worked on them!

This issue is so packed with beautiful projects to knit, sew, weave and craft that we thought it was worth going through them, highlighting some of the patterns and making some yarn suggestions from our shop - we have this conversation in the studio every time a new magazine comes in but this issue of Making seemed especially rich in inspiration.

Autumn Sweater ideas round up

Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
