Christmas Kisses Mistletoe Garland

My crochet mistletoe garland is a great stashbuster.
Each bit uses a small amount of yarn and takes little time to make.

Here's how to crochet the mistletoe garland:

DK or Aran yarn (I used Rico Creative Cotton (Aran) in Pistachio)
4mm hook

Row 1 chain  12
Row 2 tr (UK dtr) in the 5th chain from the hook, tr in the next chain, dc (UK tr) in the next 2 chains, hdc (UK htr) in the next 2 chains, sc (UK dc) in the last 2 chains
Row 3 repeat Row 1 and 2
Row 4 chain 8, slip stitch in to the 2nd chain from the hook, then slip stitch in to each of the remaining chains

Join to the base of the first leaf with a slip stitch and fasten off.
Weave in the ends, then using cotton, sew on buttons for the mistletoe berries. I used random sized white buttons. Make 14.

Using red yarn, chain desired length. Then slip stitch into each chain attaching the mistletoe at regular intervals.

By tying a loop at the ends of the garland, it can be hung easily.
