Part 20: The Knitters Ornament

on tree
  • 2 boutonnière pins (dull the tips by rubbing points on cement)
  • size 5 embroidery thread
  • skinny knitting needles, optional
  • scissors
  • glue dots
Order of events:
  1. Knit a sample with the embroidery thread. Leave a long tail when starting to make your hanger out of. You can knit this on the boutonnière pins (mini needles), or you can do this on the skinny knitting needles that are easier to hold because of length, but either way works. If using skinny needle, make sure to transfer the stitches to the boutonnière pins. Ggreen sample is straight knit stitch, red sample is *3 rows knit and 1 row drop stitch (that is two wraps around the needle that are dropped)* repeat.
  2. Cut thread about 1 to 2 yards long wind into small ball.
  3. When nearing the end of winding (about 1 foot from end), place 1 to two glue dots on ball; this will keep the ball from unwinding and will hold the boutonnière pins in place, too). Continue to wrap, making sure to cover the glue dots.
  4. Press firmly to secure thread on dots.
  5. Insert pins into ball (two options: all knitting on one needle, as with the red, or split between the two needles, like the green).
    At my house, we think the green looks better when hung up because of the way it hangs.

  1. What a cute ornament! I've really been enjoying the ornaments you've been posting.

  2. Wow! I just came across your lovely list of ornaments. All are very cute. I want to make everything (but must choose some..). Thanks for sharing.

  3. These are adorable - what a cute idea!

  4. you are full of great ideas! Thank you for sharing!

  5. What an adorable ornament. It's lovely to make/have lovely things to hang on our trees that reflect some of the joys we find in life year-round and not just at Christmas.

  6. That may be one of the cutest crafted ornaments I've ever seen! Actually, all of your ornaments are wonderful - thank you for sharing them.

  7. Wow! That may be one of the cutest handmade ornaments I've ever seen! Actually, I just love all of your hand-crafted ornaments. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

  8. Oh, that is so precious! I just now found your wonderful site. My step-mom is a knitter and she'd love to have one... now I just have to learn to knit. LOL!

  9. How cute! These ornaments are all awesome Sunshine.
    Don't know how to knit so I will just have to admire yours.

  10. Wish I had high speed! It takes so long to download the pictures, that I just have to guess at what they look like! The first few you posted I waited like a good girl to finally see what was in the works...that's why I haven't posted in a while....but I love the idea and when I do get high speed 'I'LL BE BACK' ! LOL.

  11. i changed my setting to show only 6 posts in stead of 6 days that should put a lot less photos on a page and there by upload faster.

    take care

  12. I had this same idea when I made a dollhouse, except I didn't know how to knit at the time. I made a tiny ball of thread, and stuck 2 pins in to look like knitting needles. How cute to have an ornament using the same idea!
