This pattern is available for $5.00 USD buy it now

Holly was a pagan symbol of immortality and in ancient times it was hung in houses to bring the occupants good luck and lasting life. In Denmark the holly is known as “Christ-thorn” as in the Christian faith the sharp pointed leaves symbolise the crown of thorns Christ wore at his crucifixion and the red berries represent the drops of blood on
his head.

This pattern is worked in the round and I use abbreviations according to US crochet language. I can provide the pattern in UK crochet language if preferred, please just contact me.

The finished holly is approximately 3.5” (9cm) in length and the pine cone is 2” (5cm). These are perfect for decorating a Christmas Wreath along with some mistletoe, but they could also be used as brooches, to embellish bags or simply as decorations.

Tools Needed:
2.5mm crochet hook
US size 7 (4.5mm) crochet hook
yarn needle

Yarn Needed:
4 ply/fingering weight cotton yarn in dark green (for holly)
4 ply/fingering weight cotton yarn in dark brown (for pine cone)

Other Materials Needed:
3 x 1/2”red buttons (for holly)
polyester/toy stuffing (for pine cone)

If you need any help or advice please feel free to contact me.
