The O Holy Night Wrap was designed specifically for the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop I collaborated in. This blog hop was hosted by Fosbas Designs and was sponsored by WeCrochet and KnitPicks.
The story behind this pattern comes from the Christmas song you hear during the Christmas season, ‘O Holy Night’
“O holy night, the stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth; Long lay the world in sin and error pining, ‘Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn; Chorus Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angel voices! O night divine!”
The stitches used in the pattern will create the stars and angels motifs from the lyrics of the song. I hope you enjoy crocheting the O Holy Night Wrap.
