A Very Berry Christmas Mini KAL!
Ho ho ho! There’s one week left before we start the Very Berry Christmas KAL! Grab your materials and get ready to join us on the 15th November for Part One!
For festive frolics, we’ve decided to make some fabulous Christmas decorations from patterns from one of our favourite designers, Amanda Berry! Each week we’ll be making two different patterns to hang on trees, string into bunting or wrap up for gifts!
A teeny tiny penguin for the tree!

Mini Mittens, perfect for bunting or hanging on the tree!
All of the decorations are knitted flat on two needles, and are designed for beginners. We’re going to knit along with you, and there’ll be a video for each pattern to help you!
