advent calendar. day fifteen. christmas pudding
It definitely is not Christmas without a Christmas pudding in our house. It is not a thing in the US but in the UK where I grew up we always had a Christmas pudding after dinner. Now we live in Texas I have to actually make it from scratch instead of buying one at the grocery store but we have worked it into our Christmas baking schedule every year so far.
I used Frankie Brown's pattern for the pudding with this yarn and size 3 needles and it came out just the right size and nice and round. The holly and berries are taken from this crochet pattern, they were a bit fiddly just because of being so small but they looked great when they were finished. They were crocheted in this yarn with a size f/3.75mm hook.
