Frost Family Goodie Containers Crochet Pattern
Snowmen are usually constructed by children; however, adults sometimes also participate in making snowmen. This activity dates back to at least the Middle Ages, when in Europe every new snowfall would have townsfolk making snowmen on the streets. Snowmen are considered a symbol of the Christmas holidays and winter season for many people. Jump into the fun of making snowmen with the Frost Family Goodie Containers Pattern. This easy to crochet family of frosty faces covers plastic containers so you can store items inside. Frost Family Goodie Containers Pattern includes instructions for three sizes of snowmen; Dad, mom and small child. Make as many snowmen as you want for a complete family of frosty snow piles.
Frost Family Goodie Containers Crochet Pattern uses worsted-weight yarn for a thick and durable texture. Place a recycled plastic container inside the snowman to hold candy, kitchen gadgets, bathroom necessities or personal items in your bedroom. The crochet covers the outside of the container so no one can see what it inside. This cute family of snowmen make a great gift for people at work, friends or family that you can't figure out what to get them. With three sizes available, you are sure to cover almost any plastic container you have on hand. Make all three for a complete set that will look nice on your counter. Think of all the items you can hide inside these attractively covered containers. Pull them out for Christmas and hide treats inside without anyone knowing where the goodies went. Use leftover yarn and recycled containers for a low cost craft project.
