The covers are knit using double-pointed needles. When finished, they are slipped onto the ornaments and drawn snug around the glass necks. When the ornaments' metal caps are replaced, they hide the covers' drawstring closings. The patterns are simple, and easy to follow. Even a brand-new knitter should be able to make these ornaments, because they require only knitting, purling, and simple knitted increases. There are brief, but clear, instructions on how to use double-pointed needles.
Creative knitters can no doubt create gorgeous tree ornaments by using designer yarns and varying the bead and yarn colors. However, I found the photographs of the ornaments in the booklet to be rather uninspiring, and for that reason I rate the booklet at 3 stars ("It's okay"). One recent book with patterns for Christmas ornaments, which will probably interest moderately experienced and experienced knitters, is 55 Christmas Balls to Knit (charted designs for knitted, stuffed Christmas tree ornaments).
I'm CR and I recently bought the book, "Beaded Ornaments to Knit", from Amazon.com. The book was really nice. The pictures
were very good for showing what the ball would like when finished and detail was great. The instructions were easy to follow.
I also like the fact that instructions on how to do the different stitches and what yarns to use. I would recomend this book
to everyone who enjoys knitting and making beautiful X-mas gift. You have to have patient but its worth it. Enjoyed Alot!
Having Fun Making Everyone! CR
