Knit Christmas by Sirdar Hayfield (433B)
This is the third in Sirdars Big Book of Little Knits series, created using Hayfield Bonus DK. For this book, they have gathered together a host of festive ideas to create gorgeous presents and decorations to craft your perfect hand-made Christmas.
Their fabulous knitted holly wreath is covered in vibrant holly leaves and berries and theyve designed the plumpest little hanging hearts knitted in rich Christmas red and the prettiest crochet snowflakes in white. You can make them as gifts or to decorate the home.
Sirdar have created plenty of Christmas gift ideas to knit too, with ribby socks and cabled leg warmers for girls and two fabulous hot water bottle covers (theyre great for Grandmas). You can show off your cabling skills with their stunning holly leaf tea cosy. There are plenty of easy knits too, with six knitted phone covers including the trendy cabled grey marl cover for your cool cousin, the bright orange cover for your gregarious girlfriend and the red heart cover for your sweetheart. These phone covers are mainly easy knits in the simplest of stitches and, once the festivities have calmed down a little, you could spend a little time to help a newbie knitter with their first ever project - what a marvellous gift in the true spirit of Christmas.
Finally, Sirdar have designed two gorgeous blankets and a rustic , textured cushion to cosy up by the fireside on Christmas Eve.
