Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Holiday 2008: “Dig out your swatch box and put project swatches to god use making ornaments. Thin, drapey swatches will give the smoothest effect.”


  • Glass or plastic ball ornament.
  • Knitted swatch, height and width similar to or slightly smaller than ornament circumference. Exact dimensions are not critical; swatch will stretch to fit.
  • Strong sewing thread, needle.
  • Ribbon (optional).

Available in the KnitSPIRATIONS article in the Holiday 2008 issue of Interweave Knits. (page 16)

This is an excellent way to use old or new gauge swatches.
