First off - a free pattern called Elves, Gnomes, Wizards, Santa + Leo Tolstoy. It is a cute little project perfect for leftover wools. After knitting, felt it in the washing machine - then add a bit of fleece for a beard. Perfect for the top of a wine bottle or as an ornament or gift topper. Get the pattern HERE.
I have two fantastic Christmas Stocking Patterns. They each offer many options and variations.
This Colorful Christmas Stocking Pattern is a bit easier with only 1 color per row or round.
Stocking caps are perennial favorites for holiday knitting. A bit "Seussical" some folks have said, here's Julia modeling the Farmgirls Stocking Cap. It is sized for kids and adults and will work for both boys and girls, women and men.
For your four legged friends, here's a fantastic garter stitch dog sweater. It is sized in 8 sizes from little dog to very large.
Lastly, one of my favorite patterns to knit - The Quarters Cap. Sized from babies to adult men, this is an addicting pattern to pump out for holiday gifts.
I hope these photos have inspired you to pick up your needles and begin a new project. Happy knitting everyone!
