For many it means Christmas and when someone says the 'big C' then it's too early to mention the festive season.
When does the Christmas season start for you? For me it's when I see that first Christmas ad on TV.
For our little band of merry crochet folk the 'big C' also means Crochet and a time when our craft really comes into its own. When the nights start earlier and the air turns colder, what better way to spend the dark chilly evenings than to snuggle up on the sofa with your latest project (or two ssshhhhh, I won't tell).
If this is your first festive crochet then you're in for a treat. You can make many wonderful and unique gifts for family and friends and of course, for yourself.
This easy, but very very beautiful Christmas tree pattern is the perfect start.
Ideal for the crocheters of all skill levels, even for those of you who are just getting started. It's so quick and easy to make, you can churn out many for yourself and friends before tree-trimming starts.
Find it now via the free patterns page, along with the link to the YouTube Tutorial. If you haven't already, then you will need to register to get access to all my free patterns.
Another great festive make is my 'Star is born pattern'
You can find this pattern in my shop. Take my 7-day challenge to access my step-by-step tutorials on how I make the star (see the challenge page). So start creating your stars to sit beside your crochet trees on your Christmas tree.
