 Christmas is fast approaching and I don't know about you but I'm now making everything for Christmas. It doesn't get better than the "Deck the Halls" book. It's jam packed with Christmas Ornaments that you'll love to make. Most of the patterns are for an intermediate level of crocheter so I wouldn't really recommend it for a new knitter. The book uses a variety of yarns to create the amazing designs. All of the designs are perfect for adorning your Christmas tree. My favourite is the "It's in the Bag" decoration. It's a super cute little bag with small yarn balls and two knitting needles. As a knitter and crocheter I'm going to make myself one for on my tree. All the patterns are in written format but charts are supplied for patterns using repeating designs.
Annie's also gives you access to a stitch guide, which includes illustrated guides &  how to videos. With 20+ patterns in the book it offers fantastic value for money. The patterns are varied and most people would like most or all of the patterns. Fantastic way to decorate a Christmas tree!

Knit a houseful of Christmas decorations with this fun pattern book. Both the front and back covers are filled with small photographs of some of the projects so you can see right away what is in store, a good touch. This also stresses the fact that this is a book of patterns rather than a book that teaches knitting, and some experience is required to tackle any of the pieces. Each project in the Annies series has a rating of between one and four and these are all either three (intermediate) or in a couple of cases four (experienced) so this is not a book for the knitting novice. To jog your memory there is a double page spread at the back showing the basics, abbreviations, table of yarns weights and explanation of the skill levels.

The projects themselves manage to be both traditional and contemporary in one go, a neat feat. Choose from figures like a snowman, reindeer, elf, Santa etc to hang up or go for mitten bunting, baubles, fun sweater shaped decorations or Nordic styled pieces to name a few. The emphasis here is on things to hang up whether on the walls or the tree and most are ideal for using up scraps of yarn. Each pattern has a large photograph of the finished piece in situ together with written instructions (apart from one cable chart), finished size, skill level, notes and list of what you need. This is a book that flops open easily magazine style and the instructions are very well laid out for easy reading. I can imagine this book coming out every year as cherished handmade heirlooms are created.
