Holiday Crochet: Simple, Pretty, and ooh so impressive!

One of the things I love about crocheting gifts is how easily impressed people are! In fact some of the simplest gifts look ” oh so complicated”. Not that it doesn’t take skill to make beautiful things like this Earthen Treasures necklace by CLF member Truknit., it does. But simple, and quick projects like this, combined with a good eye for beads, and an artful flare make a great recipe for successful gift giving!

You can find this pattern here┬áit’s by Jennie Atkinson, and really check out Truknits project page for more information!

Definately a winner especially for those who love to accessorize!

Holiday Crochet Gifting ideas:Purple Dream Freeform Scarf Cowl

As I surfed through the CLF projects page on Ravelry.com I found this gorgeous free form scarf.

One of the things I adore about free form crochet is being able to play with texture and color, and your imagination!

How wonderful to be able to create beautiful flowers to adorn family and friends that have a certain je ne sais quois!

CLF member Ethnicdesign created this gorgeous scarf which is for sale on Etsy.

Stay tuned to this blog for more holiday crochet gifting ideas ;)!

Doris Chan’s All Shawl has quickly become a crochet classic. I can’t count the wonderful examples of this I have seen at conventions, and even in local yarn stores!!

What’s really great is that it’s a free download for a brilliant Doris Chan design! You can download the pattern on Ravelry.com!!

This is on my Christmas Project list for my sister in law (my husband’s brother’s wife), who sadly also lost her father this month. Sometimes it takes more than a comfortghan, and this is sadly one of those occasions. However, I can think of nothing more comforting than having a Doris Chan design around your shoulders, especially one made with love!
