Miniature Ornaments, part 3

This sweater may look adorable but it’s a ton of work. It’s knit flat in pieces (front, back, arms) and then knit round for the yolk. This should have been one of those times where I read the pattern fully before jumping in, but alas, it wasn’t and I jumped in. Head first none the less.

If I make more I will definitely modify the pattern to work in the round. No seams and as little ends as possible. The nice thing about these being so small (and for me) is that I don’t have to weave in the ends. I cheated and just tucked them up inside hoping they won’t peek out as they hang.

For some reason I also had trouble laying out the “N.” The rum and coke may have played a part in it but I couldn’t get it right until I whipped out the graph paper and charted it and then it made sense.

The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Again I forgot to measure the sweater but it’s probably 3 inches wide and 2 inches tall. I meant for them all to be proportional, but like me, the wear-er of these has a small head and big feet.

They do add a bit of Christmas color to our tree so overall I’m pleased with them. Tonight I hope to finish up the last of the mini’s.
