Hello and welcome to Rich Textures Crochet! This is Day Five of the Seven Days of Christmas Baubles.  Today we learn how to crochet this Diamond Bauble.

First of all I want to say that I am having so much fan making these Christmas ornaments with you.  I hope that you are enjoying them as much as I am.  I do love the Christmas season and look forward to hanging these ornaments on my tree.

  • Pattern is written in American English terms.
  • Pattern is worked in rounds.
  • Ch 1 at beginning of round does not count as stitch.
  • Weave in ends as needed.
  • Do not join at the ends of the rounds, instead use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch and move as work progresses.
  • Do not turn at the end of each round.
  • This pattern may be worked around a Christmas Bauble or without and then filled with a fibrefill afterward.
  • When colour is not in use, carry it behind the working yarn.

Free Crochet Pattern:

With Colour A, make a magic ring OR ch 4 and join with a sl st in the 1st ch to make a ring.

Rnd 1: Into the ring work 6 sc.  Do not join but use a stitch marker to mark the first st.  Move marker as work progresses. Do not turn.  (6 sts)

Rnd 2: In the blo, work 2 sc in each st all the way around.  (12 sts)

Rnd 3: In the blo, * 2 sc in the next st, sc in the next st, rpt from * all the way around. (18 sts)

Rnd 4: In the blo, * 2 sc in the next st, sc in each of the next 2 sts, rpt from * all the way around. (24 sts)

Rnd 5: In the blo, * 2 sc in the next st, sc in each of the next 3 sts, rpt from * all the way around. (30 sts)

Rnd 6: In the blo, * 2 sc in the next st, sc in each of the next 4 sts, rpt from * all the way around. (36 sts)

Rnd 7: In the blo, * 2 sc in the next st, sc in each of the next 5 sts, rpt from * all the way around. (42 sts)

Rnd 8: In the blo, * 2 sc in the next st, sc in each of the next 6 sts, rpt from * all the way around. (48 sts)

Rnds 9-19: Continue working in the blo, work the graph below beginning at row 1. Each square on the graph is equivalent to one sc, change the yarn colour as the need arises by completing the stitch prior with the new colour yarn (i.e. In the stitch prior to the stitch worked in the new colour, with colour A insert your hook in the next st and draw up a loop.  Drop colour A, pick up colour B and draw through the two loops on your hook completing the stitch, work the next st in the new colour).  Carry the non working yarn in behind the working yarn.  Do not join or turn at the end of each round.
