Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of the great holiday projects you’ll find in the December 2016 issue of Crochet World. I know, we still have Halloween and Thanksgiving in front of us on the calendar, but if you are like me, you enjoy making handmade gifts, and you need time to get that accomplished!
When the weather starts getting colder, I begin to think of all the wonderful gifts I would like to make for friends and family. A handmade gift is a sign of my love, so I take my time choosing just the right project to make for each person.
The December issue is filled with gift-worthy projects for everyone on your list. You’ll also find some wonderful projects for making your home extra special for the holidays too.
The Designer Spotlight project features the Holiday Traditions Wreath. This one is on my list to make! This wreath would look pretty on your front door or over the fireplace.
A quick and easy project, Countdown to Christmas not only can be used as a garland to decorate your Christmas tree or mantle, the little packages can also be used individually as ornaments to hold small gifts or as a decoration on a wrapped gift.
How about a quick gift idea for everyone on your list? The Cool Stripes Beanie comes in three sizes to accommodate children, teens and adults. This slouchy style crochets quickly in a fun yarn that keeps it interesting. The stripes are built right into King Cole’s Splash DK so no color changes!
You might want to make this motif afghan for that special guy on your list. The Winter’s Eve Throw is a handsome choice in red, black and shades of gray, and would be just as stunning in shades of blue and white!
And if you have a baby girl on your gift list, you’ll want to make the Modern Baby Sweater Set. So cute in pink, and sophisticated with grey fur-like yarn for the collar and cuffs.
There are 15 more projects for gift-giving, home decorating and your wardrobe! The digital version is now on sale. Or look for the magazine on sale November 1 at your local big craft store, Barnes & Noble or Walmart.
