Featured Member Crochet: December 6

Hello again from Starting Chain. We hope that everyone is staying warm and safe as winter storms are effecting many. Our readers have been sharing photos of some of their wonderful crochet projects and we’d like tonight just to feature a few of them. They may give you some ideas for Christmas gifts or decoration or bring back memories of Christmas past.

from: Shannon Marie Garrow: “Working on Christmas decorations. This patter can be found at favecrafts.com Free ebooks and free pattern downloads.”

We think that Christmas ornament covers are some of the prettiest things we can make for the holidays. There are a number of patterns available for them and so many ways you can add embellishments. Allfreecrochet.com has a pattern and an online video. Other patterns we’ve seen come from free-crochet.com, Ravelry.com, and others. There are also books available. There are so many possibilities for making really stunning ornaments.

from: Maria Payne: “Jack and Jill dolls. The pattern has from the great Granny crochet book. 1979”

Both patterns did come out in the book The American School of Needlework, the Great Granny Crochet Book, 1979. They are darling and do have a bit of a vintage feel. The patterns were created by designer Anis Duncan.

These are so very cute and creative!

from: Linda’s Handywork: “New Dog Sweater and Hat Set”

Linda’s work is just delightful to see! Her darling dog is fashtionably dressed for Christmas and she seems to know it. For those of us who have furry critters who need to stay warm when going out, there are fortunately many patterns for sweaters. Lion Brand, Red Heart, and many others have very cute designs.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their love of crochet and creativity! Yarn Over!
