After making mini mitten ornaments to go with our gifts to family last year, I decided I wanted to make something else this year. So I designed my own pattern for mini sweater ornaments with cables and two color designs. So far I’ve made 6 of them and I’m aiming to make more. In the mean time I decided to write up the pattern and publish it.
The pattern uses size 1 or 2 needles and fingerling weight yarn. It has three styles:
A basic sweater (good for using up variegated sock yarn),
A two-stranded color work variation,
And a cable pattern variation.
Once you make a few you’ll find there are endless variations on the basic pattern. I’m looking forward to experimenting with stripes and with other two color patterns. If you use my pattern, I’d love to see how yours come out. I’ve made it available through Google Docs, and it can be downloaded as a PDF. You can find the Mini Sweater Ornament pattern here.
