Knitted Perfect Circle - Christmas Ornament

Free Crochet Project - Christmas Ornament


I wanted to try crochet and knit the same pattern and check the outcome. To start with, I did this simple Christmas ornament. They look very identical and almost equally beautiful. However, I will still prefer the crochet one over the knit one due to the finished look
