Here is another very quick Christmas gift idea for you:
This chunky style necklace is made with Metallic Sashay Ruffle yarn in a unique way - This yarn is usually used to make ruffley scarves but I decided to crochet with it coming right off the ball. Then the long chains are woven together in a special pattern to make the attractive center piece.
All instructions and diagrams can be found in the pattern.
I think this could make a great Christmas gift in red and white or red and green using the beautiful Sashay yarns.
