On this page are some instructions for crocheting some Christmas Ornaments. A small boot, candy cane, large boot with a crocheted Christmas tree on each side. The instructions are pretty old, and I'm glad my mom gave them to me, of course they are 2 good 2 lose!
With these basic patterns, dig deep into your box of leftover yarns and let your imagination go. Also see easy crocheted animal ornaments.
Using sport weight or knitting worsted yarn and a size F or G hook. Starting 2 inches from the end of the yarn, chain 2. Make 8 single crochets in second chain from hook. Place a marker at the end of the round. The 8 stitches just made are counted as Round 1.
Round Two: Make 2 single crochets in each stitch, moving marker up at end of the round.
For each of the next 6 rounds, make 1 single crochet in each stitch around.
For Round Nine: (single crochet in the first stitch, make 2 single crochets in the next stitch). Repeat the steps between parentheses over and over to the end of the round.
For the final round, (make 2 single crochets in the first stitch, then 1 single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches). Again repeat the steps between parentheses over and over to the last 3 stitches of this round.
To Finish: Work a slipstitch in each of these 3 stitches to even up the edge. To finish, work a slipstitch in the front loop of each stitch around. Fasten off and cut yarn, weaving in the loose end on the wrong side.
Draw the 2-inch end of yarn left when making the first chain through to the wrong side and attach a little jingle bell to it.You can vary the size of the bells by using different weights of yarn and different sizes of hooks or needles.
