CLOSED Christmas in Crochet Giveaway: Win a free Santa Cocoon kit!

I love all holidays but, in my opinion, nothing quite compares to the magic of Christmas!  There’s time with family, good food, classic carols and cheesy movies – not to mention, an opportunity to knit or crochet something warm and cozy while watching the snow fall outside! I didn’t think Christmas could get any better, but then my cousins & siblings started having kids.

These days, my favorite thing about holidays is knitting or crocheting something festive for the newest addition in my family to wear. My first niece is due at the end of November and I know exactly what I want to make her! The “Santa Cocoon & Hat” by Frances Hughes is an adorable new design using our Vintage yarn. Both the pieces are crocheted in-the-round, with the belt buckle and pom-pom made separately and sewn on at the end.
