Crochet Pattern: Christmas PickleBy Candace – 3 Comments
|The Christmas pickle is part of a German-American tradition in which the children of the family search for the pickle on the Christmas tree. The first one to find it gets a reward such as the privilege of opening the first gift or good luck. You can adjust the difficulty of this game in your own home by adjusting the size of your hook and yarn or the color of your yarn to make the search easier or harder.|
Finished Size: 2 1/4″ (5.5 cm) tall
Fine Weight Yarn (approximately 15 yards)

No Gauge required. Adjusting the size of your hook and yarn as you see fit.
