Nutty Irishman gets last minute knitting nod

With Christmas gift holiday knitting nearly finished, the Nutty Irishman's 'Graham,' for men and women, an easy slouch hat pattern that fits children and adults, is the perfect free pattern to use for one nutty Irishman on the list. (There more than just a few!) Here's a photo from the designer's web site, NuttyIrishmanKnits.

Christmas star knitting pattern

Mindlessly knitting the smaller eight-point star, it occurred to me that several of them strung together with a simple crochet chain for a garland would be the perfect decoration for our sitting room this Christmas. So I enlarged the star pattern that I wrote about before to knit a 5 1/2" star ornament and did just that, adding some large tassels to the ends. Made a few pom poms for the wreath and voila! The Christmas star ornament pattern is below.

One hat pattern for the whole family

The "Toque Times Two" is a traditional hat pattern designed so that one knitting pattern accommodates thewhole family. It has a no-itch interlining, nice and soft, knit in cotton, and is complemented with a jaunty knitted braid and tassel. The unisex pattern is written for two sizes which will fit a child four years old to adult. Often worn as a ski hat, this worsted weight stocking hat pattern is knit for a sturdy hat that will last forever with proper care.
