Miniature Stately Home

As holiday gifts this year, I made Christmas tree ornaments which reflected some aspect of my friends’ lives in 2013. One person went on an extensive study course of visiting historic houses so I knit a little one for her.

The house, which has a front and back, was knit on 2.00mm/US 0 needles with DMC 25 Mouliné Spécial embroidery floss, using 830 for the house, 3862 for the roof, and 3781 for the chimneys. The windows were outlined in 370 and the door was stitched in 3052.

The miniature stately home measures about 3” tall from the base to the top of the chimneys, and hangs from the tree by a glittery twisted ribbon.
