I have a few people this year to whom I'd like to give something a bit less generic than a bottle of wine or box of chocolates, but without the weight attached to a big handmade present. I solved this dilemma by knitting a Santa hat decoration which can accommodate a chocolate orange!
They also work as a no-pressure present for the "Shoot, are we close enough to exchange small presents, what if they get me something?" crowd. I might make a few spares!
The pattern is here
if anyone is interested :)
