I hope everybody had a fabulous thanksgiving! We decided on a whim to go to Minnesota for a couple days to be with my family for thanksgiving dinner. We then did a little shopping on Friday for some Christmas gifts and other essentials we can’t get at home.:) Then Friday evening we went over to visit my best friend and her husband and kids. Was a short and super amazing trip!
I released this new sweater pattern thanksgiving evening, called the Christmas snowgirl sweater. It’s a cozy chunky knit with a duplicate stitch snowman girl on the front. I knit a little scarf for her with some of my favorite yarn, We Are Knitters “yarnicorn”, and then found some cute emerald green Swarovski rhinestone buttons on Amazon. I made little yellow pom pom ear muffs and then more duplicate stitches for the ear muffs band.
This is a fairly quick knit and could easily be knit up in a few days. My knitting time is pretty sporadic so I can’t ever quite place exactly how long it takes. But it was about a week of work with an hr or so of knitting per day.
Basic skills are required for knitting this sweater. It starts with a standard longtail cast on, then a few rows worked in 1×1 twisted ribbing, followed by stockinette stitch fir the remainder of the piece. There are some decreases for the front neckline and increases for the sleeves. And then, of course, you’ll need to know duplicate stitch, which is super easy if you haven’t done it before.
I’m really excited to wear this sweater for the holiday season! It’s just got a happy festive vibe to it and is so warm and cozy to top it off. Plus, you’ll make everyone else happy too wearing it. You know, when they look at it. 😉
