These delightful little ornaments work out to just about 2 inches long, the same size as the old fashioned "C7" style Christmas lightbulbs, with which my husband's family traditionally decorated their tree. Any colors of your choice may be used, Best of all, these 'lights' never burn out! This pattern was designed after being inspired by seeing a similar ornament made of worsted weight yarn. The proportions in the yarn pattern just did not translate well to thread crochet, so I wrote my own! Pattern includes a couple ideas on how to turn the individual ornaments into a garland if you wish. All of the patterns found on Craftsy are available for instant download only. Once you have purchased a pattern it will be immediately added to your Craftsy account where you will have the ability to download it.

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~ I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks. I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old! I've got sites all over the web!
