Christmas Knitting Ideas

Christmas Knitting Ideas
The last post in my Christmas series is Christmas knitting ideas. I have rediscovered a wonderful pattern book on my shelf called “Jean Greenhowe’s Christmas Special”. All the photos I have taken for this post are of pictures in this book. It is a Sirdar book (number 236).

Christmas Knitting IdeasI am not usually overly keen on knitted Nativity scenes, but I find the one in this book quite delightful. I won’t have the time to make it for this year, but plan to give it a go next year. I really like the way the figures all seem to belong together.

They come in a range of sizes and would all make lovely gifts for children and maybe even some bigger people too. There are several versions of Santa, including a Mrs Claus, and several different snowmen too. They are joined by such things as an upside down doll, a teddy, a reindeer, an elf, and even a fairy for the top of the tree.

I find that a lot of stocking patterns seem to be a bit big. I find that a lot of stocking patterns seem to be a bit big. It can also be fun to use up some of your yarn scraps knitting little tree decorations.
