Eira is a set of five ornaments, all with different snowflake patterns. Use these as individual ornaments on a tree, or string them all together to make a lovely garland for holiday decorating.
Each ornament features a Fair Isle snowflake in the front, and a plain stockinette back. The two pieces are knit separately, then stuffed and whip stitched to create a 3D ornament.
These are the perfect little project for holiday gift-giving, and for those extra bits of skeins you have from other projects throughout the year. Each ornament uses approximately 35 yds of the main colour and 15 yards of the contrast colour. Stuff them with more yarn scraps, batting, or wool.
