These ornaments are inspired by holiday treats, and we’re going way beyond the classic sugar cookies and gingerbread men! We’ve got a super cute little meringue, cookies and milk for Santa and a colorful piece of wrapped Christmas candy to brighten our trees.
Santa’s visit wouldn’t be complete without milk and cookies! Crochet a quick cup of milk to match the cookie ornament in this series. The two of them add the sweetest touch to any tree.
This super festive little tree is so simple, but you can tell right away that it’s supposed to be a Christmas tree. Decorated with scrap yarn and simple straight pins, this little crochet ornament comes together quick!
Shifting gears to explicitly holiday vibes is the seventh ornament in our series, a crochet peppermint.
Crochet up a tiny mug ornament in no time that works for the coffee addict, tea lover, or beer aficionado (picture a tall pint glass with white foam on top) on your list.
I feel like bells were such a big part of midcentury holiday decorations, and you don’t seen them all that often these days. Well, bells make awesome holiday decor, and I’ve always been a sucker for midcentury Christmas anything. That’s why you’re getting this cute crochet bell pattern in today’s 12 ornaments of Christmas installment. Enjoy!
I wanted to incorporate more knitting and crochet into my home decor this year, so I recently whipped up this pair of granny throw pillows to add some color, texture and classic kitsch to my living room.
I’m loving how this new pattern turned out, you guys! It’s an easy crochet tote pattern, perfect for summer. Roughly 16x16x8 inches, it holds a ton of stuff for the perfect summer day hitting up the farmer’s market, the library or the beach. This chunky bag is an awesome & fun way to use fabric yarn if you’ve never tried it, and the pattern is great for beginners!
I’ve been experimenting with a new format for my Weekly Reader recently, and I think I’ve finally got it! Every Friday, I round up my favorite yarny finds, and then when I do other inspiration posts, I pick a different theme. The next big hurdle for me as a blogger, which has been a hurdle of mine for awhile now, will be actually opening up and sharing more of my personality. For now, I’m still most comfortable with being a teensy bit opaque and continuing my grand tradition of simply sharing my overwhelming enthusiasm for DIY and knitting. For now. :)
