If you love Christmas then you are going to love what I’ve got to share with you today! I’m delighted to tell you that, in collaboration with the lovely folks at Anchor Crafts, I’ve got a brand new FREE trio of hanging ornaments for you.
There’s a shining star, a jolly holly wreath and a twirly tree in the set to get you in the holiday spirit. They are an awesome antidote to wanting to make something, but not too big, at Christmas time!
They make a great seasonal project to make you feel festive and are great to make as gifts too.
It’s no secret that Christmas is my favourite season and one of my most favourite things to make for the holidays are Christmas Tree decorations!
I love making decorations for several reasons, they are usually quick, satisfying, great stash-busters and something you can bring out to enjoy every year!
I used quite traditional shades of Anchor Creativa Fino for my ornaments which is 100% mercerized cotton, 4ply natural fibre yarn. and Anchor Metallic yarn, which is a blend of viscose (80%) and metallised polyester (20%), both with a 3mm (US size 5/0) hook. Along side the sparkle of the metallic yarn I also added some 0.6 seed beads and shiny bells because I think you can never have too much twinkle at Christmas!
I’ve used Creativa Fino for lots of projects now including some other tree decorations (most of which are free patterns with links here on the blog) I really like Creativa Fino to work with, it’s a nice firm mercerised cotton which I think works particularly well for amigurumi and ornaments like these.
Pin this project for later:
The pattern for the trio is a free download available directly from the Anchor Crafts website here where you can just download the pattern or register for an account. It doesn’t cost anything for an account, but by signing up you’ll gain access to loads of other free patterns by other talented designers too.
If you hook up any of the decorations I hope you’ll tag @kcaco.uk on Instagram using the hashtags #kcacouk and #proud2craft or #anchoryarns (so the folks at Anchor Yarns can see) or share your photos with us on social media (facebook, twitter or or as a project on Ravelry) – I love to see what you make! And finally you may wish to make sure you are signed up to blog (below) and / or my mailing list to get a reminder when new blog posts, discounts or new free pattern releases are available.
Until next time folks! Happy hooking and keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
