Hey guys!

It’s been another gorgeous Autumn day over here in Sussex; me and my dog Jasper had a lovely walk along the canal and then I got all christmassy and brought many christmas scented candles! I’m getting festive =)

Let’s get crocheting,

Skills used/required:

  • chaining
  • Magic ring
  • treble crochet (tc)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
