However, I have linked short clips of how it is put together and finishing touches.

Pattern Notes

  • The ornament is made by making two round panels (front and back) as directed. You then crochet them together while inserting the plastic ornament. An opening is left on top for the top of the ornament. No sewing is required.

  • This pattern deliberately starts with a CH4 in a loop instead of a Magic Ring. This is for aesthetics, leaving a hole in the middle of the panel to allow more light to shine through the ornament.

  • The panels are made in joined rounds. 

  • CH3 counts as first DC in the first 3 Rounds.

  • If changing colors each round, you may choose to start with a standing stitch instead of the CH3 as directed.

Sizing Options

This pattern will fit the 3.9” (100mm) flat disc ornaments,

If you want to use the smaller 2.5” ornaments, use an F/3.75 mm hook with worsted weight yarn. You can also start with 4 3DC clusters instead of 6 and increase accordingly still using the 5.5mm.

Pattern:

Make 2 Panels:

CH4, join to first to form a loop. Make the first Round into the loop.

Round 1: CH3, 2DC, *CH1, 3DC* Repeat from * to * 4 more times, CH1. Join to top of CH3. (24 st or or six 3DC Clusters + 6CH)

Round 2: (CH3, 2DC, CH1, 3DC in first sp), *3DC, CH1, 3DC in next sp* Repeat from * to * in each space around. Join to top of CH3. (42 st or twelve 3DC Clusters + 6CH)

Round 3: CH3, 2DC CH1, in first sp, *3DC, CH1 in next sp* Repeat from * to * in each space around. Join to first. (48 st or twelve 3DC Clusters + 12CH)

Fasten off (Unless you are on the 2nd panel and you are using the same color.)

Tie ends and weave in to secure. Optional – add a drop of fabric glue to the knots and cut ends short instead of weaving them in. (See video below)

This video shows how to secure and tuck in your ends without weaving them in.

Joining the two panels together:

The Panels will be referred to as P1 (panel 1) and P2 (panel 2) below.

If using a new color, join to any CH1 space in Round 3 of P1. Otherwise SLST into previous sp.

Round 4: *CH1, SLST into any sp on P2. CH1, SLST into next available sp in P1* Repeat from * to * until there are about 4 OR 5 spaces on each panel left. 

Insert ornament with the top part (finial) pushed all the way to where you started. Continue with the sequence above until there are no more unworked CH 1 spaces and there is a 3DC cluster on either side of the finial. Be sure to maintain your tension here! It can be easy to start making your SL ST’s looser.

***If your panels seem too short,

you can simply add chains to the CH1 zig zag. 

Fasten off and weave in end.

Adding Ornament Charms:

Ornament Charms can be added simply by removing the wire on top and looping it through. Or like in the video above in the joining section that demonstrates attaching the ornament charm with yarn.
