On this episode of YarnCraft, Liz & Zontee encourage you to get an early start on your holiday gift-making, so that come December, you’ll be ready to go and relaxed, instead of scrambling to make gift deadlines (like two certain podcast hosts). Find out about some of the great new patterns that are available for the holidays, as well as gift ideas for everyone from your friends and family to co-workers and teachers.
We also introduce one of Lion Brand’s newest yarns, Holiday Homespun, designed in reds, greens, multis, and white, all with a gold metallic wrap — especially with the holiday season in mind.
Patterns discussed include:
- Holiday Welcome Wreath
- Festive Tree Skirt
- Amigurumi Christmas Mouse Ornament
- Amigurumi Santa Ornament
- Amigurumi Snowman Ornament
- Santa Hat (Crochet)
- Santa Hat (Knit)
- Weekend Retreat Cardi
