We had a fun time last Saturday with a group of parents and their children at a local craft store. Everyone learned the basics of crochet and all the children walked out wearing their own Christmas necklace. Some parents even tried moving beyond the chain stitch and tried their hand at single crochet to make a candy cane ornament. (I used a variation of a free pattern I found on-line at www.PlanetJune.com.)Here are some photos of a variety of crocheted Christmas ornaments that we decorated the room with for inspiration!
