One of my family’s traditions at Christmas is to always have candy canes on the tree. They’ve been kind of integrated into the Christmas decorations, so at one point before my grandfather moved he had some candy canes that were quite old. Like, fifteen years old. It certainly deterred us kids from eating all of them though! 😂
We eat our candy canes in the form of cookies instead, lol.
This week’s Free Feature Friday is all about crochet candy cane patterns.
I think this is one of the most popular peppermint/candy cane themed crochet pieces! It's a little intimidating because it's a bunch of motifs joined together, and it's considered and advanced pattern, but Mikey at the Crochet Crowd has great video tutorials and tips to make this amazing blanket! And the matching pillow looks good enough to eat!
This swirl beanie could be made in any color combination, but the red and white look so good here! And you work this beanie in a spiral so there are only two ends to weave in!
These coasters use a chainloop edging to make that amazing, spiraly border. It's a lot easier than it looks, and there's a video tutorial with the pattern if you need it!
