It might not snow this year but there's nothing to stop you turning your winterland into a woolly wonderland this festive season with a little bit of happy holiday hooking.
This free Christmas lights crochet pattern is from Jean Herman, otherwise known as The Knitted Loop. It's available as a free download from the wonder that is Ravelry.
No more scrabbling around to find out which bulb isn't working for you. Just deck the halls with these squishy lights and get down to some serious mince pie eating.
