Mrs Ho Ho

 
Mrs Ho Ho - Free Crochet Pattern

Like any good relationship, Mr Ho Ho is not complete without his better half  Who else is going to help him find his things or make sure dinner is ready for when he’s finished working Christmas eve. Mrs Ho Ho is often forgotten about but I think she’s a very important part of the Santa tradition.
