These easy Crochet Christmas ornaments will make a great addition to your Christmas tree! Or add them to a Christmas gift to a friend of family member!
Each year I like to add a few new crochet Christmas ornaments to my family Christmas tree and give a few away as gifts. Last year I posted several ornaments beginning with the Easy Crochet Christmas Ornament Free Pattern.
This year I would like to invite you to crochet along with me!

Starting this coming Wednesday, I will be publishing one Crochet Christmas ornament a day for 6 days! That means six new Christmas ornaments for you to hang on your tree or give away.
Each of these ornaments are fairly easy to make. They are also fairly quick!
What you will need:
For four of the ornaments I have crocheted around a plastic DIY ornament that I picked up from my local craft store. The last two are crocheted around a 3 inch metal ring.
If you don’t have the plastic DIY ornaments on hand, consider up cycling an old Christmas Bauble! The ones I am using have a 8 inch circumference.
Along with the plastic ornaments and metal rings, I will be using small amounts of the Shawl in a Ball yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. I love the little bit of sparkle in it!
Although the Shawl in a Ball yarn is classified as a worsted/medium/#4 weight yarn, if you are going to substitute, I would recommend a light weight (or #3 weight) yarn.
You will also need a 4 mm/G crochet hook and a yarn needle for weaving in your ends!
I’m so excited! And I hope that you will join me in the coming days!
How the Crochet Along will Work:
Beginning Wednesday, December 9th, 2020 I will post one Christmas ornament pattern a day for six days.
The schedule will be as follows:
Wednesday, December 9th: Star of Wonder Christmas Ornament
Thursday, December 10th: Snow Trails Christmas Ornament
Friday, December 11th: Honeycomb Christmas Ornament

Each pattern will include both written and video instruction. All the videos will be posted on my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/RichTexturesCrochet/
