Kick off your Holiday season early by crocheting some of these adorable mini Christmas sweaters!
In case you find yourself ever making gifts, baubles, and other small quick things at the very last minute and regretting that you didn’t start your Christmas crochet sooner, these mini sweater ornaments are quite quick and easy to crochet up!
These mini sweaters have so any different uses – use them as keepsake gift tags for presents, as Christmas ornaments on your next tree, strung on a garland and hung, made into key chains, and/or with small magnets affixed to use as refrigerator magnets, just to name a few!
Although these sweaters are too small to determine any kind of required gauge, a finished sweater will generally measure 2.25 inches x 4 inches when sport-weight yarn is used. You could actually work up a great result with any scrap yarn you have in your stash, although you might end up with a sweater that is either larger or smaller.
The following materials/supplies are needed:
- 2.5-mm (C/2 USA, 12 UK) Hook
- 3.5-mm (E/4 USA, 9 UK) Hook
- Ten Stitch Markers (Optional, but you’ll understand why in the Collar Section of the Pattern)
- Sport Weight Yarn (Fine 2) in two (or more) contrasting colors. I used Schachenmayr Catania
- Tapestry Needle
