24 ideas for ECY Yarnlings - crochet

We thought you might find it useful to have a list of ideas of things to crochet with our Yarnlings!  Since we sell a box of 24 pairs of 5g 4ply Yarnlings (inspired by the Catvent box) HERE it would make a great project to do to get you through the dark December days - or indeed any other days to be honest! Maybe you might use them as part of a bigger project, or maybe you might want to make something like one bauble in one colour per day. With 2 x 5g of each colour you could mix...
