I'm so sad. This pattern has disappeared. Every link I click is an error page or no longer available, and I tried them all! Anybody know something about this or still have this pattern available? I was so excited to do it! -(

Hi krisphipany 613773 0, I just tried the link and it is working for me. Perhaps there was a temporary issue with the blog or with your internet connection? Hopefully if you try again now you will be able to see it. I hope this helps! - Laura, editor of AllFreeCrochet

This is 100% pure sweetness through and through! It looks like it is from the game Candy Cane Lane that my four children and I spent hours playing when they were little and now that my "baby" is 19 years old it's sitting on the shelf waiting for grandchildren. You're right Morehouse17 it would be perfect on the mantel. It would also look good under the tree!

Each year, I use fewer and fewer decorations. At this stage in my life when there are adult children and no grandchildren the need for the over the top decorations and glitz have lost their shine. So until the house is filled with Grands, I select my decorations with care. This is one I really would like to have for Christmas 2018.

OMG! Every year when my sons were young we would make gingerbread houses from the kits you can buy at the store. They would always be a centerpiece on the mantel. Now that they are older, my mantel screams for those gingerbread houses that they no longer make. Here is a replacement!

This complex gingerbread house is one of those Me projects. The crochet parts arent difficult, but the project itself is broken into three different sections. The first is the underlying support, the second the crocheted structure, and the third all the trimmings. I love making real gingerbread houses, so this was an extremely logical way to tackle this project, too.
