The Rustic Village Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern has a traditional Christmas feel, making it an ornament that you will want to hang on your tree year after year!
Every year I like to add a few new crochet Christmas Ornaments to our family Christmas tree. In years past I have added ornaments the Country Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern which is crocheted a placed in a small embroidery hoop, and the Windowpane Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern Which is crocheted and then placed over a clear DIY plastic ornament bauble. This year I will be bringing you a few new traditional and minimalistic ornaments. These crochet Christmas ornaments are simple, yet beautiful. To me they have the feel and appeal of a country patch work quilt!

The Rustic Village Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern is quite easy to work and it is very quick to make up. You will work the two faces and then crochet a single round of single crochet stitches to hold them together. As the puff stitches are so thick, there is no poly fill needed, unless, of course, you would like to have it more rounded in shape and so you’ll need to stuff it a bit more.
My favourite thing about this design is that depending on the colour combinations you choose, your ornaments can look drastically different from one another! I have worked them in two different colours, and even by changing the colour pattern with the two colours can really change the look. You’ll see it in the photos below!
For this pattern I have used a 100% cotton yarn called Dishie by WeCrochet. It is a worsted/medium weight yarn. You will need two different colours (if you would like yours similar to the ones I have here!) and you will not need much – only about 30-40 yards in total! This is the same yarn that I used in the Reusable Gift Bag Crochet Pattern.
You will also need a 3.5 mm crochet hook. The hook shown in the video below is a 3.5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns.
The pattern will be written out in full below and always remain free on my website, however if your would like to purchase an ad free PDF or add this pattern to your library, you may do so from my Etsy or Ravelry Shops Below:
