I feel like bells were such a big part of midcentury holiday decorations, and you don’t seen them all that often these days. Well, bells make awesome holiday decor, and I’ve always been a sucker for midcentury Christmas anything. That’s why you’re getting this cute crochet bell pattern in today’s 12 ornaments of Christmas installment. Enjoy!
This hat can easily double as a doll hat or be knit to top a bottle-shaped Christmas gift (the best kind, right?). I think my favorite part of this adorable little hat is that it’s literally just a tiny hat – I would absolutely wear this colorful beanie any time had I made it human-sized.
Oh, what’s that? For me? Well, it’s the third ornament of Christmas, so it’s actually a new pattern for you. ;)
Even if you don’t want to knit up this sweet little heart as an ornament, it easily doubles as a nice gift topper or baby toy. As a gift, this simple knit heart could cheer even the humbuggiest of Scrooges!
Between now and December 25, I’m going to share 12 ornaments for Christmas, all of which will be a free knitting pattern, crochet pattern or a yarn craft. I’ve got some great ideas planned for this series that I’m super excited about, so let’s kick things off with a sweet, knitted star.
Not everyone has an abundance of time to make costumes every year, my husband and I included. Instead of slaving over some of the cleverer costumes we’ve done in the past, I opted for an easy DIY couples costume this year – a couple of scarecrows!
What makes this unusual knit item so special isn’t just its handmade and vintage status. It’s a nice reminder about the value of handmade gifts – even ones as random as a chicken-shaped egg cozy!
