::Berries & Blooms Christmas Garland--Free Crochet Pattern::

I've been thinking of you! And thought I would like to share a simple little free Christmas crochet pattern with you!


I'm calling it Berries & Blooms Christmas Garland and you can download the pdf for free on Ravelry and Craftsy. I am loving the colors and it was such fun to make. 







I decided to make the pattern printable, rather than posting it all here, so that you can take it with you wherever you go and need not sit at the computer or cut and paste it yourself. I also made it so that you can print the written portion and leave off the picture section if you are already pretty skilled at crochet. If not, the photo-tutorial should be helpful on those tricky spots. It also has complete instructions on how to felt, so don't be intimidated if you have never felted before. It is seriously easy peasy and only requires hot water, a little liquid soap and your hands--although I provide instructions for using your washing machine, too.



It only requires little bits of wool in five colors--but you could work it up in colors of your choice--for anywhere or anyone, not just Christmas. Goodness, you could even make it out of cotton, and obviously not felt it, in colors for a baby nursery or a happy spot in your reading corner. It would even make a sweet gift.




The puffy centers of the flower, along with the berry balls are just so fun! Yes, very fun, indeed!

FELTED with BUTTONS!! Who would have thought you would find that here, huh? I hope you enjoy it, dear friends!

By the way, if you haven't been to my Felted Button Facebook page--please stop over and like it. That way you won't miss out on any new projects, patterns and discounts! Besides, I love keeping in touch with my hooky friends!

Now I'm off to change up the quote "On the Board". I'll take a picture and let you know what it says next time.

Peace and hugs.
