After you work the crochet portion of the pattern, the crochet fabric is slipped over top of a DIY plastic Christmas ornament. This helps the ornament keep its shape. The DIY ornament I have used has a circumference of 8 inches and was found at my local craft store.
For this Honeycomb Crochet Christmas ornament, along with the plastic DIY Ornament 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 need approximately 20-30 yards.
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:
