By:

Made with a 6mm hook in lovely holiday colors of red, green and white, this holiday-themed crocheted afghan pattern is a lovely way to get your home in the holiday spirit.  It would also be great for curling up with on Christmas eve as you read and enjoy stories, hot cocoa and time spent and shared with family and friends.
