Two original crochet patterns: Holly and Candles, from the Christmas Decor range by June Gilbank.
Each Christmas Decor set includes one leafy nature pattern and one decorative pattern. The nature patterns are all realistic life-sized designs, worked in as few pieces as possible to minimise finishing. The coordinating decorative patterns will finish your arrangements with pops of fun and stylish seasonal colour.
Holly: You can use this pattern to make a single holly leaf, or a triple leaf cluster (all worked continuously, as a single piece). The finishing touch is the cluster of red berries, which are, again, all worked as a single piece.
Candles: This candle design includes two widths so you can make a narrow taper candle or a chunky pillar candle. Both patterns include instructions for adapting the height.
You'll get so much value from these patterns - each one can be used in multiple ways and you'll be using them in your holiday decor for years to come!
- Use individual components as Christmas tree ornaments, a pin/brooch/accessory, place settings, a personal touch on a wrapped gift, etc.
- The components from each of the 4 pattern sets can be mixed-and-matched to assemble into a garland/swag, wreath, candle ring, etc.
Yarn: worsted weight yarn (the pictured samples use Patons Canadiana, Bernat Satin, and Red Heart Soft yarns)
