A quick and pretty crochet garland.

Sometimes----
Sometimes you just want a little hooky project!
Sometimes you want to make a special card filled with home made love! 
Or a label for a home made gift.
Sometimes you want to to work an easy pattern and be able to adapt it.

And here is one I have enjoyed lately.
Ideal for the busy pre Christmas evenings.
Ideal for waiting to be a Grandma evenings!
Soothing and pretty!







Ideal to dress a little parcel with some chocolates tucked inside!



Perfect for a special card!



 I have tried to contact the lady who first wrote this little Garland pattern but I am not sure how to send her a Private Message.
I hope she does not mind me writing about it on my blog.
I know she must be a lovely lady because she works hard for the Loving Hands Charity Knitting Group I like to support.
  And you can ring the changes with little felt Christmas decorations!








Pattern. 
Row 1. --Chain 15 and slip stitch to make a ring.
Row 2 --Chain 1 to represent the first double crochet. Work as many double crochet stitches into the ring to make it full.Slip stitch into stitch in initial chain to complete first round.
Row 3-- Chain 2 to represent the first half treble. Work 1 half treble in the top of each stitch from the first row and slip stitch into 2nd stitch in initial chain to complete the 2nd round.
Row 4 --  This is the frilly row which finishes the pretty garland off! It goes like this. Chain 5 miss 1 stitch and slip stitch into the next stitch. Chain 5 ,miss 1 stitch and slip stitch into the next stitch.
Complete the round in this way. I never worry too much about counting the stitches before I begin this final round as it all seems to work out jut fine. If you want to make a little hanging loop work 12-15 chain and slip stitch to join!



And just recently I was jogging around Ikea when I spied these gorgeous red ribbons and it got me thinking about jugs of holly and ivy and Snowflakes and Garlands.
So a quick refreshing look at the pretty Crochet Snowflake pattern at lovely Lucy's Attic.
And here they are an assortment of snowflakes and garlands all beribboned and ready to hang when we get home.






Single Snowflakes.



Double Snowflakes!



Garlands with bells!




I hope you find time to have a little hookiness!
And as always plaese email me if you have any problems with the pattern!

  15. Similar to the cue ball that is shot in pools; this game involves coins
    and strikers that are essential to play carrom game.
    However, every character in the game (even supporting players) should be presented
    in this same detail. Preparing to apply to the dozens of other game
    development companies for video game jobs will enable you to
    expand and diversify your list of possible employers, and your chances of getting hired will
    increase tremendously.

  20. Much like Safari, the Camera app, the App Store and i - Pod,
    Game Center has no option to be deleted when editing your apps.
    Aside from the obvious difficulties of pitching so brilliantly in such a high pressure
    situation, Larsen's feat is even more impressive when one considers that the Dodgers had four future Hall of Famers in their lineup: Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Pee Wee Reese.

  27. Like any game, when we stay within the rules, we score, and when we play outside
    the rules there of course is a penalty. Aside from the obvious
    difficulties of pitching so brilliantly in such a high pressure situation,
    Larsen's feat is even more impressive when one considers that the Dodgers had four future Hall of Famers in their lineup: Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Pee Wee Reese. In this addictive puzzle game, catch that damn fly and avoid those tricky obstacles.

    Finding good outsourcing companies is the key, as naturally you do not
    want to lower the quality of the service. It can go as far as ruining
