Indie Design Gift Along 2020 A Crochet Christmas – Tree decorations and ornaments

Not a Christmas Mystery CAL

by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk

The called it “Not a Christmas” because Christmas is not here right now, and also because not everyone celebrates it. But nice crochet decorations will add a festive touch to every home. And “mystery” means you will not know what will be coming next week. The CAL will run for 4 weeks with a new pattern coming out every Friday. So in total we will make four decorations (or presents).
