Knitting Pattern for Illusion Chanukah Miracle Blanket/Wall Hanging
Designed by Sandra

Sandra is the owner of the Etsy store A Cache of Jewels

Below Sandra tells us a little bit about her Etsy store and herself.



The name, A Cache Of Jewels, came from being a Ballroom and Latin-American competitive dancer and making the costumes and jewelry with Swarovski crystals. I love things that are unique and hope to bring this to you. I specialize in knitted and sewn items for the discriminating dog and dog owners, as well as everyone else! I have a web site with the same name. Please feel free to visit any time.

I design all my own patterns. I'm especially fond of the Illusion knitting because of it's unique holographic properties. I'm inspired by my love for my Jewish heritage. I try and transfer that through my work with a Judaical theme. Also, my love for my dog Cookie. Because of her I design and make a lot of items for dogs and dog lovers and a portion of my proceeds of my sale of these items goes to the English Springer Spaniel Rescue.



This Holiday Calendar is sponsored by the Etsy Knitters Team.To find out more about the group, please visit our team page.

Each day will feature one of the following: a link to a free knitting pattern, a link to a free tutorial on making handmade Holiday decorations, a free holiday recipe, or a picture of a holiday item for sale.
