"Grandma's Knickknacks" Baubles

Here are the little bauble ornaments I made using the pattern from my "Grandma's Knickknacks" motif

They are so cute and simple.  I made them by working up the first three rounds of the "Grandma's Knickknacks" pattern.

I simply crocheted two motifs (through round three) and then crocheted them, wrong sides together, with 3sc in each ch-2 space of round three.  For added dimension and stability, I popped a single cotton ball into each one before closing the round .  Then I chained 24 for the hanger, slip-stitching in the join. and voila! Colorful little baubles for putting on key-chain, zipper, Christmas tree or whatever! The full pattern is below.

My crochet Christmas 2015 ornament project is growing!  See my earlier post
 A Crochet Christmas 2015 Challange for a link to the stocking pattern.

I used worsted weight yarn and a 4.0 (G) hook.  They measure approx. 3in in diameter. 

Here are the short and skinny instructions:

Round 1 - ch3 plus 11 dc in a magic ring
Round 2 - sc in space between dc's, ch1, repeat around
Round 3 - 3dctog, ch2 in each ch-1 space around
Round 4 - with two motifs wrong sides together and working through both, 3sc in each ch-2 space around ... pop in a cotton ball before finishing round 4 then finish the round and join with a slip-stitch in the beginning stitch of round 4.  Do not fasten off,  Chain 24, slip-stich in join, then fasten off.

*For more detailed instructions on rounds one through three, follow the link to the motif pattern above.

I hope you all will check back soon as I will be posting a pattern for Grandma's Knickknack Coasters and an all new Grandma's Knickknack Hex Motif!

  5. 🎅🤶 Christmas🎄 in July 😉☀️ August!!!! This bauble is so cute and it was fun and easy!!! I learned from another pattern maker to leave my tails long. After weaving, dont snip. Instead use them as the little bit of stuffing you need when sewing it together. I've even started saving snipped pieces from other projects to use as stuffing!!! 😁
