Pucker Up

This is my first Christmas make of 2014...
quintonwench.com
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

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.

Kate said...

Andrea Kay said...

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

Louisa said...

Carie said...

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!

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!
