For my ornament project, I wanted to try to create something a little out of the ordinary. Many of you know that I love to crochet and I was able to find a pattern for a crochet ornament cover that I fell in love with. Here is a peek at my finished ornament.
- Yarn, Medium Weight. I used the “I Love This Cotton” brand in Pink Spark. It is 97% cotton and 3% glitter yarn.
- Crochet Hook (I used Size 1, 2.75MM because of the weight of yarn I used)
- Clear, standard sized ornament. I used a plastic ornament.
Step 1: Download the free pattern for this crochet ornament cover on Ravelry. You can start an account with Ravelry for free and find a ton of different crochet and knit patterns for free also!
Step 2: Using your yarn and crochet hook, crochet the pattern and attach it to the ornament by the loops at the top.
I did find myself modifying the pattern a bit (as I do with many patterns) in order to fit my gauge and also to fit the size of ornament better. I was so pleased with the result and I hope that you have as much fun with your ornament as I did!
Here is another photo of my finished ornament.
