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.
