A handcrafted gift is an expression of love no purchased present can match. How lucky crocheters are that they can create handmade gifts for those special ones on their Christmas lists. This pattern book includes many Christmas projects such as the candy striped holiday afghan, the Christmas tree center piece, kissing ball and holiday greetings table runner. They are sure to bring joy to the season year after year, whether you give them as gifts or keep them for yourself. As you plan which projects to make for the holidays, allow yourself plenty of time, too, for family, for friends and for moments to stop and simply savor the season.
