Let It Snow...

When I went to SnB today, I walked out to encounter this:


A pretty snowflake on my jacket!

And when I came home later on, I figured out the ornament I've been trying to make. The pattern I was following is here, however, it wouldn't really cooperate with me, so I frogged it twice and made up my own instructions. For those who doesn't have Ravelry access yet, here is the instructions again:

Pattern - Knitted Christmas Ornament Covers by Judy Sumner
Yarn Called For - Small amonts of yarn, either sport or worsted/bulky weight
Yarn Used - Small amounts of Manos del Uruguay in #100
Needles - Harmony size 7
Gauge - N/A
Knit - December 02, 2007 (in couple of hours)
  1. Cast on 12 sts using your favorite knitting in the round method - I used magic loop.
  2. Join the ends and knit the first round.
  3. Rnd 2: *yo, k1* - resulting 24 sts.
  4. Rnd 3: Knit
  5. Rnd 4: *yo, k1* - resulting 48 sts.
  6. Rnd 5: Knit
  7. Rnd 6: *yo, k2tog*
  8. Repeat Rnd 5 and 6 until work measures 2 inches from the center and ends on a knit round.
  9. K2tog all the way around - resulting 24 sts.
  10. Knit
  11. *yo, k2tog*
  12. Knit
  13. Repeat item 9 to 12 again resulting 12 sts.
  14. Insert the ornament (mine is 3 1/4" diameter)
  15. Use tubular bind off.

Weave in the ends on both sides and pull tight to close the bottom hole or you can leave it loose as a decorations. Viola!

Note: Although this pattern is a modified version of another pattern, please respect the copy right of the designer's creativities and do not use this pattern for commercial use.

The snowflake-on-your-jacket picture is amazing!

I love your knitted ornament. I'm going to try that. Thanks for sharing.
