It's December! Holiday movies! Christmas trees! Candy and cookies! Mall Santas! And, for the second year in a row, a month devoted to making Christmas ornaments. :) After realizing last year how hard it is to make a quality ornament every single day, I decided to get a head start this year when I was home for Thanksgiving. First up? Jean Herman's Holiday Lights Garland (available for free on Ravelry) that I didn't have the crochet skills to tackle last year.
But how things change. The pattern seemed really daunting back then, but now that I've figured it out, I realize that it's quite simple and nicely repetitive. While Herman's pattern is for a garland, I think the bulbs make lovely stand-alone ornaments, especially in bright, untraditional colors.
I don't want to post Herman's instructions as obviously they're hers and not mine (and easily accessible), but if you have any how-to questions, please post them in the comments and I will do my best to help!
