Classical Tapered Christmas Ornament Free Tutorial

 Classical Tapered Christmas Ornament Free Tutorial

By AnnooCrochet Designs


Fun Facts:


The first decorated trees were adorned with apples, white candy canes and pastries in the shapes of stars, hearts and flowers. Glass baubles were first made in LauschaGermany, byHans Greiner (1550-1609) who produced garlands of glass beads and tin figures that could be hung on trees. The popularity of these decorations grew into the production of glass figures made by highly skilled artisans with clay molds.
Christmas ornaments are decorations (usually made of glass, metal, wood, or ceramics) that are used to festoon a Christmas tree. Ornaments take many different forms, from a simple round ball to highly artistic designs. Ornaments are almost always reused year after year rather than purchased annually, and family collections often contain a combination of commercially produced ornaments and decorations created by family members. Such collections are often passed on and augmented from generation to generation.
Santa Claus is a commonly used figure. Candy canes, fruit, animals, snowmen,angels and snowflake images are also popular choices.

Hannukah Decorations Free Tutorial

Hannukah Decorations Free Tutorial

By AnnooCrochet Designs





Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel, I made you out of Yarn....lalalalalalala, Time for some cute Hannukah decorations, my fellow latkes eaters...It is not easy to stumble upon Festival of Light Crochet Pattern on the web, so here is my take on Hanukkah Ornaments!!!! I hope you'll enjoy. I am still working on the pattern, so bare with me for more pics and tweaks here and there...


Fun Fact: did you know:
Hanukkah (/ˈhɑːnəkə/ hah-nə-kəHebrewחֲנֻכָּהTiberianḤănukkāh, usually spelled חנוכה, pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew; a transliteration also romanized as Chanukah or Chanukkah), also known as the Festival of Lights,Feast of Dedication, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire of the 2nd century BC. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislevaccording to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.
The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched menorah or hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. The typical menorah consists of eight branches with an additional visually distinct branch. The extra light is called ashamash (Hebrewשמש‎, "attendant")[1] and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest. The purpose of the shamash is to have a light available for practical use, as using the Chanukkah lights themselves for purposes other than publicizing and meditating upon Chanukkah is forbidden.[2]
Other Chanukkah festivities include playing dreidel and eating oil based foods such as doughnuts and latkes.

Today I am sharing The last discovery which has made me so ridiculously happy: Plarn
My fellows crochet addicts, I absolutely needed to share it with you for this year's holidays.
I love creating something cool out of unexpected material, and this is just a  perfect example of having fun while up-cycling.
 As any modern household do, I always have a pile of plastic bags, sitting in an organized mess in my drawers, and I never quiet know what to do with them, but I hate just throwing them away... so joy and happiness here is my solution!

When turned into "Plarn"  these bags give a versatile crochet medium, resembling "Whraphia", but  slightly more flexible and easier on the hook. I truly hope you will enjoy experimenting with plarn as much as I did...Oh the possibilities....
