I’m thrilled to be part of the 12 Weeks of Christmas CAL this year, hosted by Maria of Pattern Paradise, and sponsored by Red Heart! Thanks to Red Heart Yarn, we will be hosting a Weekly Yarn Giveaway (value $50) so that you can try some of their new and featured yarns and we will end with a Grand Prize Giveaway too (value $125)!

The Holly Berry Stocking is made with Red Heart With Love, Red Heart With Love Metallic, and Red Heart Fur yarns. With over 30 beautiful With Love colors to choose from, you can make your stocking in your favorite colors!
Red Heart With Love yarn is an ultra-soft premium acrylic worsted weight yarn. This yarn wins all hearts for its softness and sheer touch-ability. It is easy care yarn, as it can be washed and dried. No-dye-lot solids mean all skeins of a solid color match, so it’s easy to buy another skein and continue the project.
Red Heart With Love – Metallic is the same With Love yarn, now with metallic! A matching metallic wrap adds some shimmer to your favorite shades of this soft, all-purpose yarn.
Red Heart Fur adds accents to your décor and accessories with this soft fake fur yarn. It comes in a mix of natural and non-natural shades, so you’re ready to make the project of your dreams. It’s ultra soft and luxurious feeling too!
The Holly Berry Stocking is a beautiful heirloom piece. Featuring the Berry Stitch, it makes a raised bump that looks like polka dots, by working down one round below in-between the bumps. It is made by starting at the toe and working towards the cuff. Make them in the traditional red and white or mix it up and make them in colorful colors!
