Christmas Pudding!

To be honest I'm not a fan of Christmas pudding.  Although I've only had it once. It was disgusting. I'm allowed to say that because I'm the one who made it. 
It was a flop. Perhaps it was the recipe...
I'd be willing to try it again...

It is just so iconic & adorable though.
Being an anglophile I'd really like to like it.

I thought I'd try my hand at a crocheted version instead! 

Here are the tutorials I used if you like to make one as well!

For the circles I made one brown & one off white of this Cherry Heart tutorial. 

For the holly leaves I used this Attic24 tutorial & fingering weight yarn.

For the berries I made 3 bobbles {one right after the other without chains in between} using this tutorial loosely.

For the drippy icing scallops I joined the two circles with single crochet with the bottom side facing me {the brown one}. Stuff with polyfil before closing completely. Then *skip 2 sts. Work 6 DC in 3rd st. Skip 2 sts. Work 1sc in 3rd st. Repeat from * all around. Slip stitch into base of beginning. Fasten off.

I hope you enjoy your tasty puddin'! πŸ˜™
