Each year I love adding a homemade crochet Christmas Ornament to my family Christmas tree! This year is no exception.
This year I designed six different Christmas ornament patterns that I would like to bring to you over the next several days!

The Star of Wonder Ornament:
This Christmas Ornament is called the Star of Wonder Christmas Ornament. And this is the first of the six ornaments in the crochet along. I think it is so pretty!
The Star of Wonder Crochet Christmas ornament is a simple to work ornament. It is an easy 5 rounds. The final round is worked around a 3 inch metal ring. This ring helps the ornament keep its shape!
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:
