Knitted and Crocheted ‘Paper’ Chains

These are a great stash buster so feel free to try different combinations of colours and textures to make these – Sandy had some tinsel wool that made a fab chain!

Bear in mind that the size only needs to be approximate rather than exact. Scroll down to see the patterns or download here:
