We love these charming, vintage-feel Christmas decorations! They're made in Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight wool, but you could use any 4ply yarn from your stash – a great way of using up leftovers from other projects.


If you have no more room on your tree, why not make a few to give to family and friends this festive season? You could even stuff the stocking with chocolates for someone with a sweet tooth!
