Pucker Up

This is my first Christmas make of 2014...
This mistletoe pattern is by Marina Hoffstrom and it's very well written. You can purchase it in her Etsy shop.

I used Sirdar Cotton DK yarn and a 3mm hook. Instead of using pearls, I chose to use some pearl buttons.
A red ribbon bow finished it off and it's now ready to be hung over my doorway! xx

  2. Dropping by from Clare's link party - I've been pinning a bunch of mistletoe ideas lately, but your version makes me wish I could crochet. I especially like the addition of the buttons.

  5. This looks great and I particularly prefer your use of buttons to the original pearl beads. The colour you used is spot on

  10. Oh that's so pretty - I love the idea of using pearly buttons, a perfect way to use all the odd buttons that lurk at the bottom of the button jar!

  15. Oh I love this! Seeing as we are a kitty household and mistletoe is poisonous to them, I love the idea of the crocheted varietal. :) Thank you so much for linking up at Snickerdoodle Sunday- hope you'll come by again later this week!
