The story is that today is the day Santa and the elves draw up the first draft of the list … the naughty and nice one!
I have made several styles of tinsel alternative starting with a crocheted chain with a picot (double crochet into second chain from hook) about every ten chains. I have used 8 ply yarn and 4 ply cotton, both with 3mm crochet hook
The tree has wire branches covered with double crochet worked in a feathers style yarn.
Then I tried crocheting a single chain using feathers style yarn, in red, white and gold …. winner!
