Holiday Stashdown 2016-Rockskipper Wristers-A Free Pattern


holiday-stashdown-image

I’m beyond excited to be participating in the Holiday Stashdown Crochet-a-long again! I have teamed up with several amazing crochet designers to bring you 24 free crochet patterns for the holidays! This fun-filled Holiday Stashdown is also a great stashbuster! Most patterns can be worked up in a skein or less or can use up those scraps that you’ve had laying around wondering what to do with. My contribution to the Holiday Stashdown CAL are the Rockskipper Wristers! These gloves work up super quickly! The stitch is also super fun and it just flies!
