Here's a free pattern for mistletoe which you can attach to a quick banner from my 'Get Set Alphabet' pattern. I just switched out the colours for a traditional Christmas feel and replaced one of the tassels with the hanging mistletoe.

I've written up the pattern for the mistletoe below.

I used the same hook size as called for in the pattern, 3.5mm and an acrylic wool for all parts.

Mistletoe 

Stem and leaves 

The following rounds are made using green:

(Leave a long tail at beginning to attach to banner)

Round 1: MC, Ch 1, SC 6 in the circle, join to first SC with a SS 

Round 2: Ch 1, BLO, SC 6, do not join 

Rounds 3-17: SC 6 

Join to first SC with SS

Round 18: (Shorter leaves) Ch 15, *DC in 4th Ch from the hook, DC 2, HDC 3, SC, SS* Ch 10, Rep from * to * with the SS being in same st as first SS, SS 4 up Ch towards stem, SS in same st as original SS on stem. (Longer leaves) Ch 20, *DC in 4th Ch from the hook, DC 2, HDC 3, SC, SS* Ch 10, Rep from * to * with the SS in same st as first SS, SS 9 up Ch, SS in next st on stem. 

Rep all of these instructions on Round 18 5 more times ending with SS in first SC on stem again.

FO

Weave in the last end, leaving the original tail end.

Berries

Make 12 

The following is made using white: 

*Ch 3, puff st in the third Ch from the hook, SS to same ch that puff st was made in* Rep from * to *. 

FO leaving a long tail

I blocked the leaves for a neater finish.

Attach the berries to the middle of each pair of leaves. I did this by sewing both ends of the berries through the leaf, knotting at the back and weaving in the ends towards the stem.

Hang up for a festive feel to the holidays!

Happy hooking 🎄
