Rollicking (adj.) - exuberantly lively, jolly, and amusing
I dare you to say, “rollicking baubles.” It’s literally so much fun.
These lovely little ornaments are just as much fun to knit as they are to say. Made from a bunch of little scales, they’ll add a touch of heirloom-level class to your tree this Christmas season.
With the purchase of this pattern, you will receive links to my video class which will guide you through the process. These videos are only available to pattern purchasers.
This ornament is made in one piece. No seaming, no snipping, no weaving of ends. The only thing you’ll need a needle for is adorning the tree with little french-knot lights. All the embellishments are attached with glue (please don’t alert the knitting police!).
This pattern doesn’t include a single purl stitch. All you need to know is how to cast on, knit, and do a knit front/back (if you’re planning on making the Santa ornament, you’ll also need to know how to m1).
You will need:
-50 grams of fingering weight yarn (50g of green for the Christmas tree, 15g of light pink & 35g of cream for Santa)
-Various little bits of other colored yarn for decorations (2g each of red, blue, and yellow for Christmas lights, 15g of red for Santa’s hat)
-10g of gold crochet thread or yarn (Christmas tree’s bow)
-3 Size 0 (2.0 mm) DPNs (size 0 24” circular needle for Christmas tree bow)
-One 2 ½ inch (6.35 cm) clear ornament
-8 locking stitch markers (or bobby pins)
-Hot glue gun or fabric glue (needle and thread if you want to go that route)
