    Thank you 😊 so much for this pattern – I would love to make these little things in crochet but not many share their patterns which is quite understandable if they sell them. I can’t wait to try this Christmas pudding. Being a Brit now living in Canada I have to make my own (I do cheat a bit a freeze one so this year don’t have to do it LOL).

    Have a great Christmas!!!
