If your gift recipients usually put up a Christmas tree for the holiday season, it’s a no-brainer to give them cute ornaments as Christmas gifts. Ornaments are relatively quick projects; they’re the ideal thing to make for neighbors, co-workers and distant relatives that you don’t know very well.
I know of two different books where you could find fantastic bird knitting patterns. The first is called The Field Guide to Knitted Birds by Arne and Carlos. The other is Arne & Carlos Favorite Designs by the same authors.
If you’d be interested in knitting bunches of different Christmas gifts and decorations, perhaps you’d find it useful to own an entire book of Christmas knitting patterns. Pictured here, you can see one fantastic suggestion for that: It’s called Jorid Linvik’s Big Book of Christmas Knits. This book includes patterns for making “giftable” items such as toys, hats and socks, plus bunches of fun Christmas-themed decorations and other festive goodies.
