Part of the Twenty to Make series, this little book contains ideas for the Christmas season. The twenty designs use metallic or cotton crochet yarns. You only need small amounts. Most of the designs are very desirable and fun to make and different to the companion knitted christmas book. Designs range from just under 5-10cm (under 2-4 inch) tall so take little time to crochet. There are the usual Christmas characters - snowmen, reindeer, angels in cute designs plus crackers, bells and snowflakes and so on for the Christmas tree. There are also ideas for the fridge, table and gift toppers - this is a good selection. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

This book is full of great things to make and I think they will make cute little Christmas gifts or pretty additions to my Christmas tree. The instructions look clear and it is a nice touch that the conversion between American and UK terms is part of each pattern, so should help me not to forget and do the wrong stitch.

Well, having read the other reviews, I was really looking forward to this book. I am a little disappointed that there are errors in patterns. The first one I tried needed some attention but I was ok, since I'm not a beginner at crochet; I think beginners would struggle.

The selection of things to make is fine, I just hope I don't encounter too many more errors. I do crochet to relax, not as a brain teaser!

This is a lovely book which gave me many ideas for Christmas, including paper decoration which looked the same as the crochet ones, but I have to say that on occasions I did find it a little confusing. Because I have made many things I was able to adapt my skills to make the product look like the picture.
I think one of the best things I got out of this is it made me very creative.

A cheery, great little book! I love working with 4ply, particularly cotton 4ply and the medium suits many of these lovely designs very well. The addition of silver and gold yarns to some designs adds a pretty festive touch.

All the designs look well thought out and the photographs illustrate them to their best advantage.
Very good value for money and a little book one can use time and time again. The finished projects would make super gifts, fancy gift-embellishments and tree/mantle ornaments. They would also be good to sell on charity craft stalls and similar.

I usually alter designs somewhat, but I don't think I'll need to here.

Quick and easy patterns which (so far) seem to be free of errors.
Patterns give both UK and US stiches together which is really helpful and saves trying to work it out!
Very pleased with this book, am hooking up LOADS of snowflakes and wishing stars :)
