A new collection of easy to knit and felt Christmas Baubles.
The nights grow longer and it’s time to get knitting again, so why not cosy up and make your own baubles this year?

These traditionally styled baubles are simple and quick to make.
They are knitted flat using chunky Filz/Felting wool which shrinks into thick soft felt after a cycle or two in your washing machine.
As the decoration is added after the baubles have been made up and before felting, the crosses blend into the felt as though they were knitted in.

These patterns can also be used to make plain baubles in a single colour which you can embellish as you wish using needle felting, sequins, ribbon or embroidery.

Felted Size (approx) 7.5cm /3” high

Each bauble takes a total of 25g/ 25m Scholler and Stahl Filzi

If you wish to use a substitute yarn -
Rico Creative Filz,
Lana Grossa Feltro,
Tilley’s Freedom wool
