Knit or Crochet 2 ornaments. One will be for Knit-N-Purl’s Tree and one to swap with another participant. We will draw names on the 15th of December. You will be able to pick up yours that night or any day after that. When you drop off your ornament please include a copy of the pattern along with your name and e-mail. We hope to assemble an E-Booklet of all patterns from this event. Help us make this new event a success! Merry Christmas.
Ornament Swap Specifics:
Ideally we would like 2 of the same ornament. You would submit 1 copy of the pattern (Free or not). along with the pattern source and your name.
However, several people wanted to make 2 different ornaments with is fine; but you will have to submit a pattern for each design so that everyone will be able to have access to it.
