knitted: stars! (Christmas Fiddle-Faddle)

One of our students is getting married next month and a friend of hers had a Christmas ornament shower for her last week (her birthday is on Christmas and she loves all things Christmas). Paul and I couldn’t go to the shower, but I still wanted to give her some ornaments. I went with EZ’s August Fiddle-Faddle and some leftover Malabrigo Worsted, in Pollen. Such a sweet little knit!

August Fiddle-Faddle, detail

pattern: August Fiddle-Faddle, Elizabeth Zimmeran, Knitter’s Almanac
yarn: a minimal amount of Malabrigo Worsted, Pollen
needles: size 3
dates: April 9-10 – super-quick!

I will definitely be making more of these. In addition to being super-cute ornaments, they will be such sweet gift decorations. I’ve also seen a few people who have made them as tree-toppers (with thicker yarn and more garter rows).

  1. Tree topper! What a great idea. We’ve been looking for something pretty and not made in China… this may be the answer! πŸ™‚
