Tiny gift knitting has been underway...
These cute gifts are made from the pattern Home Sweet Home Wee House Brooch and Key Ring.
Knitted on straight needles with sewn on embellishments. The brooch and key rings are similar in design but constructed slightly differently. Detailed instructions are given for both.
These gifts were made with Jamieson’s of Shetland DK but you could use other DK weight yarn.
Small amounts of contrast yarn are needed for the roof and walls along with additional colours for windows and doors, 5 colours in total to complete each of the projects as shown.
Knitting skills required: cast on, cast off, knit stitch, purl stitch, working with changes of colour, picking up stitches. Some basic sewing skills.
Examples of the brooch version....
Here's one in action so to speak...think I'll be keeping one of these for myself.
