Christmas tree garland

We have devised a little Jolie Christmas crochet kit. Inspired by Carolyn's fabulous crochet trees at last week's knit and wine, we managed to write a pattern for a Christmas tree. The kit is made up in a preserving jar with pattern, yarn (Rowan's cotton glace), beads to decorate and ribbon to make your own pretty garland. £12.95
We had a few hiccoughs with the pattern, (sorry to those who experienced hexagons, rather than triangles!) but all is well now and in fact they are very easy to do - we reckon about 20 mins per tree. Linda and I are madly crocheting little trees for garlands, hanging decorations, gift tags on presents and also Christmas coasters (in dk).
....bit dark last night, but I put mine over the fireplace..........very pleasing. Thanks Carolyn for sharing this with us.

  4. Hi Cazzie,
    I think we crossed wires with the phone and the blog. It was very busy in the shop when you rang. I hope you received your kit safe and sound and are busy crocheting xmas trees.
    I am now making Christmas drinks coasters with a larger hook and some cotton dk.
