“I absolutely love Christmastime and feel that crochet is the perfect fit!” Donna told us, “There is nothing better than cosying up with a hot chocolate, twinkly fairy lights and a project on the hook, watching an array of festive films! This pure wool DK was so lovely to work with – I love the tone of the colours. Instantly this cute festive bird house formed in my mind as the ideal project.” See Donna’s blog at www.thecrochetcraftco.co.uk or follow her on Instagram @thecrochetcraftco.


Marianne is also a big fan of the festive season – “Christmas is by far my favourite time of year, so this challenge was perfect for me. I wanted my decoration to be cute and modern, but also to evoke feelings of festive nostalgia – the beautiful pure wool yarn in natural tones was ideal for this. It also had to be a relaxing holiday make – quick enough to hook up one evening with a bit of Yuletide telly and a mug of hot mulled wine.” Follow Marianne on Instagram @mazcrochets.
