Make your holidays all the merrier with a collection of crocheted sweets. Goodies include Crocheted Meringue and Gumdrop Topiary, Pink Petits Fours, Christmas Pudding, a festive Yule Log and more. There's even a Whipped-Cream-Topped Cup of Cocoa and Snowflake Sugar Cookies to leave for Santa on Christmas Eve. Skill level is intermediate.
You will need Worsted Weight Yarn and G-6 (4mm) and H-8 (5mm) Crochet Hooks. For some of these projects you will need polyester fiberfill. For the Meringue and Gumdrop Topiary you will also need a 9" styrofoam cone with base about 4" across, or size desired, a glue gun and glue sticks or thick tacky craft glue, and long straight pins with large heads or T pins.
