HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE DIY GARLAND WITH HOBBII


Hobbii LOVE Christmas! 🎄 And they certainly do not shy away from the fact that they do! So, in true Hobbii fashion, they challenged me to inspire our amazing crafty community and work on a fun and easy crochet DIY project 🧶.


This is definitely a sponsored post. Hobbii were very kind enough to ship the yarns that I needed to design and share this cute garland.


Let’s talk about the yarn. I recently purchased an i-cord maker and wanted to put that to work, knowing that it would shave time dramatically. Cotton 4-ply works wonderfully in this machine, so I opted to try Friends Cotton 8/4 for the first time. It worked like a dream! True to size, 100% super soft cotton, durable and with no missed stitches from the machine! That’s a win-win in my eyes.


I wanted this project to work up quickly, so asked for all the festive colours in Friends Wool. It did not disappoint! 100% wool, soft with a small itchiness to it (which is to be expected with wool), but strangely doesn’t catch on itself. Super easy yarn to work with and can see it being used with accessories like cowls and scarves as well.


Overall, Friends does get a thumbs up from me. I am keen to try the others from the range and see if they stand up to where these are.


Seeing as you’re here for the pattern, here it is!
