Do you also love the trend of having large 3D letter decorations in your house? Now you can make your own very large Ampersand with this very clear and easy to follow crochet pattern.

Of course, you can combine letters to make words like ‘love’ or ‘home’, which would look lovely as a decoration in your house! :) I choose this font with serif on purpose, I love the look of the more classic letters and fonts.

The crochet Ampersand made from this pattern can be used very well to educate kids about the alphabet. Imagine making your kids’ names with letters and ampersands, it would be a lovely decoration in their bedroom! Also it’s a very nice idea to make their name in 3D and place in onto their bedroom door. :)
