Away in a Manger


Even though Christmas is technically over, I wanted to share with you one of my Christmas knitting projects and did not want to wait until next year.  I found this amazing free pattern for an ornament that depicts the nativity on it.

I used #8 crochet thread and size 1 needles to knit this adorable ornament.  I did modify the pattern slightly at the end. Instead of binding off I continued to decrease the number of stitches until I had 4 left.  At which time, I knitted an I-Cord hanger.

If you would like to knit one for yourself, the free pattern can be found here on Ravelry. 

The creator of the pattern, Eva Lyus, also has posted on Ravelry patterns for the Wise Men and Shepherds that would complete the set.  I plan to work on them in the coming months to have ready for next Christmas.

Happy Knitting
