U.S. and International

I enjoyed this last year and wanted to do this again this year, but give more time to plan for it! I hope to avoid the end of the year tiem crunch for us all.

What an opportunity to show off some knitting skills for your partner's Christmas tree! You will have one partner to make one knitted mini sweater ornament. To be clear this is for a real sweater only ornament size - not a one dimensional flat piece. Don't forget the loop or hanger to hang it from the tree too. Patterns abound on the internet but if you have trouble finding some they can be found on Knitting Pattern Central in the Christmas section. Although I think we shouldn't stand in the way of creativity, if you plan on decorating in a special color theme you could leave a hint in the comments section. Please be generous with your partner and try to make her day! As usual, please read partner's profiles for any allergies.

Swap requirements: Not a swap open to newbies. You must have completed 10 swaps and have been rated, 4.8 or higher and no recent no-sends. Please, if you don't really have the time, you've already signed up for a bunch of swaps, or lack the know how to make such an item don't sign up. I will check before assigning partners and ban anyone who has slipped in ratings or is posting on their profile that they will late in sending for any reason. me

awww...if I had alot more practice on knitting mini sweaters, I'd join, lol. I've only made a couple and it seemed to take forever, lol. But I'll be on the lookout for other swaps like this in the future. Have fun everyone.

I'm new to swap-bot, but I understand no newbies in this. It's a bummer, because I have 11 of these ornaments already knitted. (I went on an ornament knitting binge there for a while.) I would love to trade them for some new ones!

Do you know of a site that has a free pattern we could use?

I'm a newbie on this site, however I would love to do something like this. ( I love to knit and since it's my first Christmas with my husband and son and not my parents, we have no decorations. )

If anyone would like to do a swap like this with me to help my rating, please message me.

For any newbies please contact me direct and I'll set up a private swap with you.

and for others who need to be told... it's just not cool to copy swaps or wording.
