A Free Crochet Pattern
It's been a long while since I have offered a free pattern on the blog. I thought this one perfectly fit the bill to be a free pattern so here we are.
The first Christmas that I had my oldest, I wanted to have the perfect tree, but when you are on a limited budget like we were at the time expectations are often not met. I was feeling a little sad about it, and my mom encouraged me to just find a color theme and just make my own decorations with what I had. I ended up having some red and green fabric that I ripped up into strips and made ribbons with them. We had fake poinsettias that I took apart and put those on the tree. And it really ended up being a cute little tree. After that first Christmas, I always try and make something to add to the tree.
This year I decided on making some garland. I took a little inspiration from some garland that I found for $1.00 after Christmas last year. I wanted it to be mostly neutral with a little pop of color.
Where to find the pattern
Below is the free pattern instructions. It's written a little different than how I usually write patterns but for this pattern I thought steps would be better than rows, I have added a picture for each step to help along.
