These cute Harry Potter sweater Christmas ornaments are great for stocking stuffers! They’re fun to knit and are adorable on the tree. The raglan sweater construction is the same as how a full-sized sweater of the same type is knit. You’ll need a small amount of two colors of worsted weight yarn. Using the same kind of yarn for both colors will make the lettering look a lot neater. You’ll also need a stitch marker, yarn needle, and an optional large paperclip to make a hanger. The post with the pattern for the Mini Weasley Sweater Ornaments includes a video for how to do the whole project. Before you begin, you may want to review the following instructional videos:
- How to knit with double pointed needles (DPNS) and avoid common problems, OR how to knit magic loop,
- How to knit front back (Kfb),
- How to move stitches to scrap yarn, and
- How to do duplicate stitch.
Feel free to post a question in the comment section or drop me an email. Happy knitting!
