The striking designs of Norwegian colorwork inspired the appearance, while the desire to be kind to the planet and create lasting mementos inspired the function of these reusable and giftable Christmas Crackers. They can also be used as tree or garland decorations or as an Advent calendar.

Each cracker is knit in the round and has a picot hem edging on both the bottom and the top. Yarn over eyelets create holes for the ribbons that cinch the crackers closed. Colorwork patterns are charted only.
