Mini Christmas Crochet 20 to Make

I loved the reindeer on the cover of Mini Christmas Crochet Twenty to Make and from seeing the release notice wanted to order this book. I even went so far as to put it on a wish list exchange on a crochet group. Thankfully, I had many Christmas presents to buy and put off buying it until I could preview it from the library.

I really wish designers would make a point of including yarn/thread descriptions in their book descriptions. The patterns in this book are beautiful, but they are thread patterns. In this case they use a slightly larger needle, a B, but if you find thread challenging to work with, this is not going to be the best option for you. Now you can make many of these patterns with sport or worsted weight yarn and end up with larger projects. However, with so many beautiful patterns written for the correct size yarn, I am not sure I would spend the money on this book and then work out all the challenges.

If you like thread crochet than there are some cute patterns in this book. If you are looking for quick ornaments and decorations to fill a stocking or for a swap this may be the book you are looking to buy. The book includes patterns for:


Pine Cone
Christmas Wreath
Dove of Peace
Glimmering Snowflake
