This is the first part of a Christmas project to last throughout December. This pattern is for the garland only, the patterns for the 24 different ornaments will be published separately, one a day, beginning on 1st December 2011 and ending on Christmas Eve.
The garland is knitted in three identical sections so that it can be hung up in different ways and it has 24 buttons on, all ready for the decorations. This would make a good group project or why not knit the garland now and work on the ornaments throughout the year? Knit two a month and it’ll be ready for next Christmas. Any of the decorations could also be knitted as individual ornaments for the Christmas tree, just make their hanging chains longer to allow for the branches.
All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising pagewww.justgiving.com/frankiesknittedstuff
