It’s another wonderful day full of Christmas cheer with the next FREE pattern in my Christmas collection with Premier Yarns. Today’s pattern is my: Christmas Light Garland! Just when I didn’t think Christmas lights could get any better, I found out that they are even better when they’re crocheted. That’s why I’m so excited to bring you this pattern to help decorate your home!
This is my favorite time of year, and I get so excited with all of the fun decorations, preparations, food, and cozy things that come with it. One of my most favorite parts of Christmas is the Christmas lights! They cast such a magical glow over everything they’re on, and make me smile every time I see them. In the town where I’m from, every year one of the local hotels puts on a Christmas Market where they decorate the whole property in twinkly lights with all sorts of festive displays. From Santa Claus, the 12 Days of Christmas, to the Nutcracker, this Market has it all! I also love seeing everyone’s Christmas light displays all throughout the neighborhood. So many creative people out there!
Premier Yarns’ Everyday yarn is the perfect yarn for my Christmas lights! Not only is it extremely soft, squishy, and wonderful, but it also comes in a lovely range of colors. After browsing on Instagram and Pinterest for some Christmas light inspiration, I decided on the Caramel color of Everyday yarn for the light strand, and went with a pastel colored theme for the light bulbs. I absolutely love how it turned out!
