These charming decorations are quick to make and will add a cheerful touch to your Christmas tree – why not give a few away to friends and family, too?


Rosee has made her set using small amounts of Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight wool for a vintage feel, but any 4ply yarn should be fine, so it’s a good way to use up odds and ends in your stash basket.

The star is worked in the round, while the tree is knitted flat.
