Tiny Houses Free Crochet Pattern
Since there is not such a thing as too many Christmas tree ornaments, here's a new fun project for you...little crocheted houses!
They look adorable on the tree, but they could also perfectly work as mantel decorations, baby crib mobile attachments or door knobs hangers...so many options, right??
Just to add a nice touch to the houses I worked the doors and the windows with the TUNISIAN KNIT STITCH crochet technique (you can find the step by step pictures and instructions on my PDF File).
However, If you are not familiar with this technique you can crochet the doors and the windows with simple single crochet stitches!
The tiny houses are made of 100% organic cotton from Babytoly.
I love working with this cotton, it's so soft and the color options are beautiful!
Check out their website and find out more about this amazing yarn!
I enjoyed very much designing and working on this quick project and I hope you're gonna have fun too!
