- Basic knitted ball, perfect for using leftover bits of sock yarn. Pattern includes instructions for 4 ball sizes. Pictured in A in the collage above.
- Lacy balls. 4 lacy patterns to cover a standard Christmas ball. Pictured in B in the collage above.
- Textured balls. 4 textured patterns that would look great in solid or semi-solid yarn. Pictured in C in the collage above.
- Holiday lights ornament. This ornament does not go over a ball. It is knit and stuffed with polyfill. Looks just like the old, big, classic tree lights from your childhood (if you're my age!). Pictured in E in the collage above.
Then today I ran across a pattern by Little Cotton Rabbits for a knitted teddy bear ornament (pictured in F in the collage above). Normally a teddy bear would not float my boat, but this one is so cleverly constructed that it intrigues me. I might have to try one. See what blogger So Much Yarn, So Little Time has to say about knitting this project.
Little Cotton Rabbits has another pattern for knitted mini Christmas stocking ornaments, and these are adorable (pictured in D in the collage above). There are lots of examples to peruse in Ravelry, as well.
Still not enough?
