WOODLAND CROCHET ORNAMENTS – CROCHET PATTERN
This holiday season, I hopped on an online yard sale page and saw a beautiful used faux tree, and decided to put 2 trees in my house this year.
I didn’t grow up with 2 trees. In fact, we were after the Griswold tradition of traipsing across the mountain to find the perfect tree to cut and bring home. Luckily for us, my dad is not an idiot, and the tree was always cut using the proper tools and sized appropriately for our house.
But this year I had the idea to have my tree with all my crochet ideas, and another tree for the kids to let their Christmas spirit run wild without my pesky annoyance of nagging that all the ornaments are clumped in one spot. Win-win!
ABOUT THESE CROCHET ORNAMENT
Next year I intend to have a “theme” for my tree, but this year it’s a hodgepodge of mostly handmade crochet ornaments, and since there are a few, but not many, I needed to add more to my collection.
This pattern pack includes three designs, one for a cute macrame-vibing gnome, one for a cute little acorn, and another for a mushroom.
The mushroom has been on my list for a while, but it seemed silly to write up a whole pattern design with just 3/4 of a page of instructions, so I wanted to add 2 more designs to the pattern.
I had a pixie shaped mushroom (I am sure there is a botanical name for it) but I couldn’t get it polished in time, so perhaps it will make an appearance next year!
