It's been months in the works, but I've finally finished it. What, pray tell, am I referring to? My Holiday eBook, Poinsettia Proliferation!
My book is a part of Malabrigo yarn's Freelance Patterns Project and contains four holiday patterns composed of or adorned with poinsettia motifs.
The poinsettia motifs range in size from small to large and are crocheted using a combination of traditional and Tunisian crochet techniques. The shawl above is composed of medium size motifs.
The apron and oven mitts above would make a lovely gift for the holiday hostess in your life! Both mitts and apron are an easy weekend crochet.
Finally, dress your table with a festive table runner made from one large and two medium motifs.
The motifs in the book are really versatile and can be used in a multitude of projects outside of the ones detailed in the book. Think holiday afghan, a funky holiday vest that would put any holiday sweater to shame or appliques for holiday napkins or guest towels (thinner yarn or thread would have to be used to create motifs for this purpose). Literally, the sky's the limit!
So, are you ready to get hooked on poinsettias? If so, you can obtain your own copy of Poinsettia Proliferation! in my Ravelry or Etsy stores.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
