In Part 2, we will work on the sides of the Gingerbread House as well as the rooftop. But I have to tell you that I am most excited about Part 3 when everything is put together and the “candy” gets to be added.

How to crochet the Gingerbread House Crochet Along Part 2
You can use to use other worsted weighted yarns, just be aware that the Jeans yarn is not a true worsted weighted yarn, but a bit on the thinner side and is almost considered DK yarn. All the other worsted weighted yarns are true worsted weighted yarns.

Row 6 – 12: 1 sc in the each st, ch 1, turn (13 sts), fasten off after the last row
