Pattern Description:

I love the Victorian clothing and look and so I decided to do a Victorian Christmas caroler set. She looks so cozy and warm with her hat, muff and cape.

This versatile victorian caroler bookmark crochet pattern works extra hard, like so many women today. She can also work as Christmas ornament or home decor wall decoration for that space that needs a little extra flair on the wall. Or she makes a wonderful reading character bookmark. She would make an adorable ornament for a package that gets mailed instead of a smashed bow.

If she is used as a bookmark, her soft cream "fur" muff is made with Caron Soft yarn and can hang outside the book to remind any reader that there is more story to go. Her three-dimensional head with "fur" bonnet hangs outside the book.

Her dusty rose skirt accents her burgundy coat with "fur" trim. The "fur" trimed capelet is removeable as is her bonnet.

My mother taught me to make a chain stitch when I was in elementary school. I was hooked. Now, I enjoy making knit and crochet patterns that I love for others to learn these wonderful arts.
