Felted Gingerbread Ornaments Pattern

Felted Gingerbread Ornaments Pattern

“Jolly cookie shapes.”
The knitting's as easy as pie—easier, actually! Once your knitted piece is fully felted, simply use the included templates (or trace your own favorite cookie cutters) to cut 'dough' into jolly cookie shapes. Decorate as desired (we've included embroidery instructions). Hang them on your tree, tie them onto packages, string garlands—you get the idea. Yum!

Before felting: Approx. 26"/66cm around x 8½"/22cm high.
After felting and cutting open: Approx. 22"/56cm around x 5½"/14cm high.
Yield: 5 or 6 gingerbread people, or a variety of shapes and sizes.

1 skein Brown SheepLamb's Pride Worsted (190 yds/174m each); shown in Color 175 Bronze Patina.
Or approx. 190 yds/174m of an equivalent feltable worsted-weight yarn (Or approx. 95 yds/87m of an equivalent feltable bulky-weight yarn, held single.) Scraps of yarn for decoration.

US 13 (9mm) 16—24"/40—60cm circular, or size to obtain gauge.

Approx. 11 sts = 4"/10cm with yarn held double, before felting. Gauge should be invisible after felting.

Could the knitting be any easier? Cast on, join, and round-and-round you go. We like to think this is a season-less pattern: hearts for a Scandinavian Christmas, or at Valentine's Day; stars all year 'round. Let your imagination run—how about eggs at Easter or garlands of autumn-hued trees . . . ?

And we think you'll love our embroidery instructions—applicable to more than this pattern. Once you start doodling on your knitting, it might be hard to stop.
