Knitting Christmas Arts And Crafts
Yikes it’s three days until Christmas Day!
I’m sure there are plenty of you out there who are getting super excited for the holidays and now that the kids have finally broken up from school, you can really spend some quality family time together at home.
Arts and crafts are a brilliant past-time to get the children creative, imaginative and have fun.
Knitting, although it can be tricky, can be quickly picked up by beginners and is fantastic for making homemade Christmas time decorations or presents (well, apart from the reindeer jumper your gran knits you every year!)
Why not weave some striped stockings to hang over the fireplace this Christmas instead of simply buying them from a store?
Try making some Pom Pom Snowmen for decorations on the mantelpiece that will bring a homely flair to the house; or try crocheting a robin nest to put in the Christmas tree?
Whichever arts and crafts you decide to make, you can always wear Aprons to protect your clothes.
Before you get started, here are some knitting abbreviations and terminology to help you along the way;
ch = chain
st = stitch
slst = slipstitch
dc = double crochet
tr = treble
dk = double knit
Crochet Robin Nest
This craft is perfect to add some family tradition to the Christmas tree. Once it is made you can hang it up year after year.
Pom Pom Snowmen
You can be creative and knit you own scarf and hats for these snowmen to make it that extra little bit Christmassy.
Snowflake and Striped Stocking
What’s fantastic with this art and craft is you can do whatever colours you like to suit your Christmas theme in the house. Traditionally, red, white and green are the most iconic colours associate with the holiday season.
