I'm on an ornament roll! Snowflakes are something I've coveted and hoped to make for years now ... but it wasn't until this year that I finally believed my crochet skills were up to the task. This is my first snowflake ever, from the book 100 Snowflakes to Crochet. I like it, but I think it would look better in the recommended crochet thread (this is worsted weight acrylic yarn).
In following with this year's theme of "follow through," I thought I'd make something I've been intending to make for years now: hand-sewn felt ornaments! I can't tell you how many of these projects I've pinned on Pinterest over the years. The peace sign and heart are my own free-hand designs, and the angel pattern is from the Bugs and Fishes blog. These were so much fun that I'm sure I'll be making more--which is good, since I have quite a bit of felt in my stash to burn through!
Pattern: Santa by Debra Yorston (free pattern here!) Link to my Ravelry project page.
Hook: G (4.00 mm)
Yarn: Less than 5 yards of Caron Simply Soft in red and white, and Knit Picks Swish in Oyster
Mods: hdc instead of sc for hat, chain 6ish and hdc in each to finish hat.
