Clara's Nutcracker Trio ornament kit

Visions of sugarplums, Nutcracker princes and knitting (of course) ...

I am delighted offer Nutcracker Trio kits in the original yarn and with the original set of notions! This beautiful trio of knitted ornaments were created by Susan Claudino (NoKnitSherlock on Ravelry) for Little Skein. The set includes the Nutcracker Prince himself, the dastardly Mouse King, and the ethereal Sugar Plum Fairy.

The kit will enable you to make these beautiful knitted ornaments which stand approximately 6 inches tall and are utterly charming. They are my favorite kind of holiday knitting -- they take only a night or two, they're infused with maximum holiday cheer, and they look impressive and are guaranteed to delight anyone who receives them.

Knit them for yourself, gift them, or add them to a package as a gift topper.

Choose a kit for an individual ornament or a kit to make all three. Your kit includes

Nutcracker Trio pattern: When your kit ships, you'll get an auto-email with a link to download the pattern, and in your kit box will be a code to add it to your Ravelry library.

Six beautiful, hand-dyed mini-skeins created by Knitted Wit in an exclusive color palette:

  • Mouse King
  • Royal Nutcracker
  • Golden Crown
  • Candlelight
  • Sugar Plum
  • Winter Snowflakes

Jawbreaker mini-skeins each weigh 25 grams and are 45 yards each. Altogether, this is more than enough yarn to knit your three ornaments (and likely a few more).

Luxe notions package to create the exact same ornaments that Susan created. You'll receive:

  • Chevron hanging ribbon
  • Black crochet thread, lovingly hand-wound around a wooden spool
  • 3 sets of safety eyes
  • Jingle bells
  • 2 silver crowns
  • Silver sword
  • Black mustache button

Note: Individual ornament kits include 2 or 3 mini-skeins and a customized set of notions to make just that particular ornament.

If you're a romantic knitter like me, you will adore this yarn-and-fabric interpretation of the story of young Clara, her gifted Nutcracker, and the epic battle that ensues between her prince and the Mouse King.
