Let’s talk about that Knitted Christmas Star!

We have just released a new trip to the United Kingdom, from June 4th-10th, where we will visit some of our favourite gardens and estates – and knit along the way on a mystery project designed by us! We have chosen to return to Highgrove, the stunning private garden that HRH Prince Charles has created for his home in Gloucestershire. We will also visit two other favourite gardens of our’s, which are considered among the very best in the UK: Hidcote in Gloucestershire and Sissinghurst in Kent! We are so excited about doing a new tour in the UK and travelling in the beginning if June means we will be in England when the gardens are at their very best! Click here for the program and more information and read about our previous trip here.

This week, on our channel:

51 days to Christmas! Even though we still think it’s a bit early to start spreading the joy of Christmas, this week, we have a new pattern for you: SIA, the Christmas Star. We designed this star for a Norwegian Magazine, Hjemmet, in 2017 and ever since we started posting images of it, people have been asking for the pattern. We finally had time to put this together as well as a tutorial on how to do the skeleton for the star, which is the hardest part and which you can see below. Because of the relief pattern on the star, we think a skeleton in galvanised steel is best although the star could also be stuffed with acrylic or wool filling.

Get the pattern here.

We will be spreading the joy of Christmas in December, as we have filmed four special advent episodes, and many people will be happy to know that two of our advent episodes will be on cooking! So remember to tune in every week at 6:00pm CET // 11:00am CST.

    I bought the pattern but can’t open it because it’s corrupted. Is there a fix? Thanks.

    Hi! I was watching back episodes, and was actually looking for the patterns for the Christmas balls. The link under the episode in 2017 that says ‘patterns available here’ seems to be broken? If there are only available in the book now I will just order that. Thanks! -Jen
