Holly, Ivy & Steve - Three Holiday Hooligans
Short Description: Meet Holly, Ivy and Steve, a trio of Christmas hooligans! This new knitting pattern from Danger Crafts will show you how to knit all three Christmas Ornaments out of sock yarn. Since it doesn't take much yarn to knit these ornaments, this is a great stash busting project for all those times you've bought a ball of sock yarn (with the best intentions) because it was pretty, or you were planning to knit all your socks in the future, or make a gift, or heard socks were easy, or....well you know how it goes. This pattern is very fun and once you knit one set of ornaments, you will find you want to knit enough monsters to decorate every house on your block!
