Review

Christmas is running quickly towards us. Now is an ideal time to start thinking about what you want to make for Christmas. This book is full of ideal makes as they are nice and small so won't make you hot whilst you are making them. With 20 projects for knitting and 20 projects to crochet you can't go wrong. There is so much to choose from. It's a book you can use year after year to add to your decorations or give them as gifts. Each of the patterns are in easy to read written format. They are easy to follow and give you really good guidelines as to how to put the decoration together. I love this book! It is packed full of beautiful fun things to make for Christmas. I'm going to make sets up and give them to relatives this Christmas. This book has to be 5 out of 5!-Crochet Addict UK Grab those needles, a hook and some yarn and put yourself instantly into the Christmas spirit with these fun decorations. Small enough to grow quickly and varied in subject matter these are sure to be treasured part of the Christmas decorating for years to come, or great gifts if you can bear to part with them. If these designs look strangely familiar then you probably already possess Mini Christmas Knits and Mini Christmas Crochet, a pair of Twenty To Make books from 2011. This book also came out in hardcover the year after, so you can see what a well-loved book it is. Here it is again in soft cover, ready to delight a new batch of yarncrafters. What makes it special? Perhaps it is because these are all small items that are not too difficult or lengthy to make; Christmas is a busy time and large projects are liable to get left unfinished. These are the right size, and make wonderful decorations for the tree and the table as well as gifts and charity sales. Each design has a page of written instructions, a list of what you need and either a view from a different angle or a variation. On the other page is a full-page photograph of the finished item. Choose from angels, fairies, trees, various creatures, snowflakes, snowmen, stockings, puddings, bunting and more. My favorite knit has to be the beautiful fir tree egg cozy and my favorite crochet the delicate bell. This is not a book on how to knit or crochet, but anybody of improver or higher experience ought to find them a pleasant and relaxing break from larger projects and a fun way of using up all that leftover yarn.- Myshelf.com Christmas is a-coming and what better way to use up those yarn scraps than making some decorations for the tree? Packed with quick and easy projects, this book combines knitting and crochet designs, with the crochet patterns including gold metallic yarn pine cones, pretty snowfl akes adorned with pearls, a mini stocking, a Christmas pud and ami characters including Rudolph, a baby penguin and a snowman. A cute and fun festive treasury you'll use year after year. - Inside Crochet

LITTLE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS TO KNIT & CROCHET combines two previously-published books, Mini Christmas Crochet (Twenty to Make) and Mini Christmas Knits (Twenty to Make), into a single volume. The patterns are as charming as ever--although I think that the crochet patterns win out on overall cuteness! Crochet is especially good for making small decorative items like wreaths, snowflakes, and pine cones.

In the Christmas Knitting section, you get patterns for tree ornaments (a star, a Christmas tree, a heart, a knitted sweater, mini mittens, a Christmas mouse, a fairy mouse, a stocking, a holly wreath, a sweets cone, a reindeer, a snowman, a robin, a Christmas pudding, an angel, an owl, a French hen, and a turtledove). These items can also be used in tabletop arrangements. In addition, you get patterns for a Christmas-tree-shaped egg cosy, and a pretty Nordic bunting.

In the Christmas Crochet section, you get patterns for tree ornaments (Christmas tree, pine cones, wreath, dove of peace, snowflake, stocking, red-nosed reindeer, good fairy, penguin, snowman, angel, Christmas "cracker", star, bell, figgy pudding, and Christmas bear's head). These items can also be used in tabletop arrangements. In addition, you get patterns for a snowman-scene refrigerator magnet, a Christmas coaster, a napkin ring, and a Poinsettia gift decoration.

The knitting patterns call for fingering yarn and US 2 or US 3 needles; the decorations range from 2-1/2 to 4 inches tall (average about 3 inches tall). The crochet patterns call for a US B-1 crochet hook, and either a no.

The twenty crochet patterns include ornaments, coasters, tabletop decorations, napkin rings and more. If you’re looking to get a jumpstart on Christmas crochet then this is a good book to get your bases covered. These are all small crochet designs that are intended to be worked up quickly, so this will also work if you order the book now but put off crafting til closer to Christmas!
