Here’s a couple of really cute Christmas decoration, they whizz up in no time at all.

Free patterns are written in my spare time and not nearly as detailed as patterns in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative I have included as many photos to help you and there’s pattern notes below. I always recommend reading all patterns notes prior to starting your pattern, I hope you have fun making your Christmas decorations. You are welcome to sell your finished creations made from my pattern, however you may not copy, share, reproduce in any way including video tutorials or sell the pattern itself and we kindly ask that you link to our Etsy shop if selling online https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020 So let’s get started, Happy crocheting 🧶

Pattern notes: Ch1 at beginning of each round does not count as stitch throughout, all rounds are joined with a slip stitch although you could work the pattern without joining the round as a spiral but when you change shades you will get a “jog” rather than a smooth colour change. The main part of the crochet bauble is worked without being attached to the bauble, after Round 17 the bauble is placed inside your crochet and the remaining rounds are crocheted around your bauble. It’s important to fasten off all yarn ends prior to Round 17. Note your decreases are worked as 2dctog.

You will need: 3mm crochet hook ~ Dk cotton yarn, I used Rico Ricorumi in shades nougat, cream, ivy green, wine red,~ plastic baubles approx 5cm diameter these are available at reasonable prices in supermarkets ~ wool needle for sewing in yarn ends ~ scissors ~ glue gun or fabric glue for attaching holly leaves and berries. 🎄

Note : your decreases are worked as 2dctog ( US 2 sctog)

Round 1 Using nougat Ch2, 6dc in 2nd ch from your hook, ss to join in first dc (6sts) Round 2 Ch1, 2dc in each stitch around, ss to join in first dc (12sts)

Round 17, Using cream Ch1, dc in every st around, ss to join in first dc (24sts )** Insert your bauble next making sure you fasten off your yarn ends before placing your bauble inside your crochet. The remainder of your rounds are worked with the bauble inside .

I find it handy to remove the top of the bauble and replace it after you complete your bauble. Round 18 Decrease round , Ch1, *(2dctog, 2dc)* repeat from *to * around, ss to join in first dc (18sts )

Round 20 Decrease round , Ch1, *(2 dc2tog,)* repeat from *to * around, ss to join in first dc (6sts) Fasten off cream work a couple of stitches to secure the end of your yarn and cut it leaving about 4cm, post the end of the yarn inside the bauble and replace the top. If you want to secure the top use a fabric glue or glue gun to attach.
