This simple pattern , courtesy of Red Heart, is easy to adapt to just about any time of year by altering colors. The one shown here is perfect for Christmas, whether coiled up as a candle ring, garlanding the tree, or bedecking the mantle or banister. You could even use a template for holly, flowers, ornaments, etc, or doll it up with novelty yarn, glitter, bells, or buttons. And wouldn’t it make a cool grab bag gift for casual parties? The possibilities seem endless, really. Let the crocheting begin!
