Easy Crochet Christmas Ornament Free Pattern

Hello and welcome to Seven Days of Christmas Baubles! For the next seven days we will learn how to crochet one new Christmas ornament each day starting with this Easy Christmas Bauble!

The Yarn:

The beauty in this ornament is in the fact that it is made with a self striping yarn which means that it has beautiful colour changes that come naturally in the yarn.  I have chose to use the Landscapes Yarn by Lion Brand yarn but you may use any worsted weight yarn.

The Design:

This design is crocheted around a plastic craft Christmas bauble but you may also use an old one that you would like to spruce up.  In the pattern I have also included the instructions should you like to complete your by stuffing it with a bit of fibrefill.

The pattern is worked in continuous rounds meaning that you will not join or turn at the end of each round.  Instead you will use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch and move it as your work progresses.

The Time:

They are so easy! Each one takes about one hour to crochet.  If you have been following me on social media you will see that the next baubles will include a bit more colour as we learn how to work some colour charts together.

Until then, enjoy this easy Christmas ornament.
