Christmas decoration (+ pattern)

Only 6 weeks to go till Christmas, so you better hurry up if you want to make some Christmas decorations for your tree.
Making them yourself makes this whole period more fulfilling. It will create the Christmas atmosphere in the house, weeks in advance. With this easy pattern it will be ready in no time.
The yarn used is explained in 'Fancy up your yarn!' (cotton with sewing thread)
I have also tried the same pattern with a normal acrylic yarn (the grey ones ) but as it is not heavy enough it won't hang so nice in the tree.
Have fun!




PATTERN
Ch 5 on hook size 3 mm  and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Row 1: ch 1, 11 sc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first ch.
Row 2: ch 2, * 1 dc in next sc, ch 6, 1 dc in next sc *, repeat 5 times, 1 dc in next sc, ch 6, finish with 1 sl st in 2nd ch from beg of round = 6 ch spaces.
Row 3: ch 1, * 1 sc between the next 2 dc, 4 sc in ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook, 4 sc in ch space *, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times, 1 sc between the next 2 dc, 4 sc in ch space, ch 20, 4 sc in ch space, finish with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
Fasten off.

  14. I happened to have a somewhat similar yarn in my stash -- cream and blue and fuzzy and just finished my first little decoration. Thanks for sharing such an easy and pretty pattern. I plan to finish up this little ball of yarn with a bunch more. Best wishes, Tammy

  16. Maybe my email went to your spam box so I write again here. I tried to crochet this ornament but didn't manage. The 11 stitches seem to be too many, in the second row I could repeat the pattern more times than only 6 total. Where do I read it wrong?

    1. Hi Agata, indeed I did not get an email. Basically in Row1 you will have 12 single crochets in the ring and in Row2 you will make 1 double crochet in 1 single crochet of Row1 than you chain 6 and make another double crochet in the 2nd single crochet of Row 1. So for each 6 space you will need to use 2 single crochets of Row1 and this you will have to repeat 5 more times. So normally it should work.
      I hope I made some sense. If you prefer to see this in a schematical drawing please let me know and I will add this to the post.
      Hope you will let me know if it would work after this explanation.

      Good luck,

      Alex.

  22. In round 2 are you supposed skip a stitch or still chain 2 because I don't seem to understand the patteen. I have a huge gap left after I finish round 2....
