Loom Knit Christmas Ornaments (Free)


The Holidays are here! I thought I would kick off the season with a couple of Loom Knit Christmas Ornament Patterns. First, there's Ol' Saint Nicholas. He's a skinny style Santa with a bobble nose and bow mustache. Next, there's a cute christmas tree with a simple bobble to decorate its' top. Both ornaments are super quick and designed as stash busters. Only yarn weights are given so use whatever you have in your stash, get creative with your own yarn choices! I hope everyone enjoys these patterns and the upcoming holiday season. As always, happy Loom Knitting!-Nicole
