Christmas Skittles Crochet-Along: Part One

Designer: Heather Gibbs

Download Pattern

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without games. You stuff yourself silly, watch the Queen’s speech, then… anyone for Uno? Monopoly? Well, we thoroughly recommend that you add a handmade touch to proceedings this year. We’ll be sharing six skittle patterns, plus a stripy ball so you and yours can gleefully knock them down. In this first part, there’s a classic Father Christmas and his beloved wife. Both use basic stitches and simple shaping, so they’re lovely patterns to take on. Half trebles are used to create the scalloped shaping on the beard and apron, and you’ll be making bobbles for the noses. If you love our crochet series, make sure you check out our crochet-along archive. Happy making!
