Yarn: light weight (3) yarn suitable for a size 2mm crochet hook in:

  • white
  • red
  • metallic silver

Crochet hook: 2mm

Tapestry needle – scissors – stitch marker – 80mm styrofoam ball

**If when you’ve made both ornament pieces you see that the styrofoam is too small, then you’ll need to either remove a row (or 2) or get a bigger styrofoam ball.

Abbreviations: (click on the stitch name to go to a tutorial about that stitch)

I used a spike stitch in this pattern. If you do not know how to make a spike stitch, you can find a good and clear tutorial here.

The color of yarn you are to use for your row is mentioned at the end of the row. When nothing is mentioned, use the same color as the previous row.

Work only in back or front loops when this is mentioned. When nothing is mentioned, work in both loops.

Important information: (click here to go to a really good tutorial about how one reads the rows)

*2sc, inc, 2sc* repeat till the end = 2sc, inc, 2sc, 2sc, inc, 2sc, 2sc, inc, 2sc, …

*3sc, inc* repeat till the end = 3sc, inc, 3sc, inc, 3sc, inc, 3sc, inc, …

**At the end of every row you are to connect the last stitch to the first with a slip stitch (I call that a connecting slip stitch). Then ch1 if the next row starts with single crochet, ch2 if the next row starts with half double crochet and ch3 if the next row starts with double crochet. This chain DOES NOT COUNT AS A STITCH.

**Start the next row in the very same stitch in which you made that connecting slip stitch, NOT in the next stitch.

Row 1: 12dc in a magic ring with red

Row 2: 2dc in every stitch around (24) with metallic silver

Row 3: *3dc in the first stitch, ch1, skip the next stitch of row 2) repeat till the end (48dc/ch) with white

Row 4: 1hdc in every dc + 1 spike stitch in row 2 under the chain space (48) with red

Row 5: 1hdc in every stitch (48) with metallic silver

Row 6: *7hdc, 2hdc in the next stitch* repeat till end (54) with white

Row 7: 1hdc in every stitch (54) with red

Row 8: 1hdc in every stitch (54) with metallic silver but right in the middle between 2 red spike stitches, you make 1 spike stitch in row 5

Row 9: 1hdc in every stitch (54) with white

Row 10: 1sc in every stitch (54) with red

Row 11: 1sc in every stitch (54) with metallic silver

Row 12: 1sc in every stitch (54) with white

  • yarn off but leave a long tail
  • make the second half of the ornament but only till row 10
  • Then sew the 2 pieces around the styrofoam ball and make a loop at the top that will fit around the branches of your Christmas tree
  • If the ball is too big: add row 11 + 12 to the second half of the ornament
  • If the ball is too small: you’ll need to get a bigger one
