It’s high time to start thinking of gingerbread houses

There’s few things that say Christmas, like gingerbread houses.  However, gingerbread is not everyone’s cup of tea and frosting as an adhesive is messy. So, why not try crocheted gingerbread houses? Consequently, you can have all of the beauty of a traditional one, but without the side “benefits”. The beautiful frosting along the edges of the crochet gingerbread looks like snow and icing and very Yuletide-y.  Moreover, these are fun patterns that will get the kids involved as well.

Gingerbread House

This gingerbread cottage is a great example of what can be done with crochet in imitating these beautiful Christmas traditions. Overall, this is an easy pattern and yet the finished cottage looks so realistic so scrumptious you can almost smell the gingerbread spices.

This lovely crocheted gingerbread house is a wonderful example of how to use a modular construction technique to crochet components, and then to stitch them together. Obviously, there is so much room to customize the decorations that it’s every bit as good a decoration as the real thing.

Here is another great example of how to modularly put togther a gingerbread home. Although in the same vein as the others, this one is definitely more in the gumball/candy space. Consequently, I very much like it for it’s definite originality.
