The Christmas Traditions ornament celebrates our family holiday traditions! It is a wonderful way to use up light weight yarn scraps in the holiday season.
This easy Christmas Ornament is a great scrap busting project that can be worked in one hour or less. The ornaments would look wonderful hanging on a tree, in a window or even as a gift topper for the gifts that you will be giving this year. I look forward to making them as gifts for my children’s teachers.

The Christmas ornament is a crochet granny circle that is then attached to a 4 inch metal ring in the final round. For the project I have used a light weight yarn called Truboo yarn by Lion Brand. I have used three different colours in my ornament, although you may work yours in more or less!
I have also used a 4 mm crochet hook.
Feel free to check out the free video tutorial following the free pattern below. There I will show you how I crocheted the granny circle onto the metal ring!
