These small sachets can be knit up quick and they make cute ornaments. You can combine the patterns any way you want, and it’s a great way to play with color work for the first time.
You will need:
- two balls of DK weight wool or alpaca yarn in contrasting colors* -- we used Reynolds Whiskey, and especially recommend something tweedy
- one pair US Size 3 needles
- a yarn needle
- about 1 tablespoon of balsam fir needles for each sachet (you can also use plain polyacrylic stuffing)
- bits of scrap cloth (white muslin is inexpensive and works well)
sewing needle and thread
four straight pins

*You will need at least two colors for this project, but you can use more if you want to work up a more genuine fair isle pattern or for the more complex three color patterns.
