The Carols Ornament:
This crochet Christmas Ornament is quick to make. It features only six rounds and the final round is worked around a 3 inch metal ring. The metal ring I picked up at my local craft store.
Not only would these ornaments look great hanging on your tree or garland, but you could also attach them to the top of a Christmas gift as an accent to the wrapping.
For this crochet Christmas ornament, along with the metal ring which I purchased from my local craft store, you will need a small amount of a light weight yarn.
For my ornaments I used the Shawl in a Ball by Lion Brand Yarn. It is classified as a medium worsted weight, but I find it on the lighter side. So if you would like to substitute for a different yarn, you will want to find a light (#3) yarn.
You will also need a 4 mm crochet hook. I am using a wooden Streamline crochet hook in Ebony by Furls Crochet.
The crochet pattern will be written out in full below. However if you would like to add this pattern to your library or purchase an ad free PDF, you can so from my Etsy and Ravelry shops:
