Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 355 – Square Snowflake Ornament from MillaMia

This week our friends at MillaMia have a unique contribution to our growing collection of home decor designs: Christmas ornaments. They aren't something that you'll need right away, but you'll be glad to have them when the time comes. As with all MillaMia designs, their ornaments are knit in Naturally Soft Merino and beautifully photographed.

MillaMia has given us the square ornament pattern for free. The other patterns are available now in our Christmas Decorations kit (see below) and will also be available for free on later this fall.

The Yarn

Naturally Soft Merino
100% Extrafine Merino

Naturally Soft Merino is made entirely from extra fine Merino wool, but it can still be machine washed in cool water, so garments don't have to be saved for special occasions. The lovely twist produces a fabulous, even stitch definition for knitters of all abilities, and rewards the more experienced with superior, springy cables and crisp color-work.

Teal and Pumpkin are limited edition colors that are available now! Click over to the CEY blog to learn more and see designs knit with these two new shades.

Excited to knit the full collection?

Naturally Soft Merino's palette is expertly curated so all the individual colors mix, match and complement each other. Using just four colors, you'll have enough yarn to make the variety of ornaments pictured.

The full range of MillaMia ornament patterns is available now in these Christmas Decoration kits. These kits come in two color combinations: classic (shown above) and bright (below).
