Knitting Needle Size15 or 10 mm, Double-Pointed Knitting Needles (DPNs)

Yarn Weight(7) Jumbo

Materials List

  • RED HEART® Grande™: 1 ball 110 Aran
  • Double Point Knitting Needles: Two 10mm [US 15]
  • 1 yd (.9 m) of 1” (2.5 cm) wide green ribbon for each ornament, sewing needle and thread, binder clip, yarn needle

Special Technique

I-cord = Cast on 2 sts, k2, * do not turn work, slide both sts back to other end of needle and place needle with stitches in left hand. The yarn will be coming from the left stitch. Pulling the yarn so that it is snug, knit the two stitches from the left needle. Repeat from * until I-cord measures indicated length. Cut yarn leaving 12” (30.5 cm) tail. Pull through both sts.


Ornaments are made by knitting long I-cords which are then folded, braided and sewn together. One ball of yarn is enough to make 3 ornaments.
GAUGE: Gauge is not necessary for this project.
Ornament measures 5” (13 cm) in diameter.


Make an I-cord 50” (127cm) long. Fold I-cord into thirds. Clamp binder clip onto one end (one fold + one loose end). Begin braiding loosely, pulling out the loose end when it becomes tangled. At the end, pull the loose end through the loop created by the fold. Sew through this end to secure using sewing needle and thread. Remove binder clip and sew through the end to secure.


Sew ends together forming a circle. Flatten the wreath so the braid lays flat. Make a bow with the ribbon and sew over the seam.
Hanging Loop
Sew one yarn end to back of ornament seam to form a loop. Weave in other yarn end.


k = knit; st(s) = stitch(es); St st = Stockinette stitch; * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated.

I have never seen this before. They are adorable and easy to make. And I still have time to make them for Christmas so I am excited. You can even add a very thin decorative yarn in as well to make them a little fancy. I am so glad I found this pattern - and its free. Thank you.
