The Fur Tree
Still got those dreaded Christmas decs to make? Try putting a knitted twist on your tree this year with this pattern from Frugal Haus. Use traditional green or use snow white instead, add ribbons, bows, mini ornaments – make it your own personalised piece to use year after year!
When it comes to garments, sometimes it’s better just to add an attractive border in furry wool as opposed to using the yarn for the whole piece. Have a go at making our Chunky Waistcoat with its fluffy collar – a simple and easy way of adding elegance to a knitted piece. Best of all, you can download the pattern for free here at LK!
