Make 2:

R1: Create a MR, ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1, (2 dc, ch 1) five times. Join with a sl st to the top of the initial ch 3, finish off and weave in ends.

R2: Join new colour with a sl st, ch 3, work 3 dc all in the first ch1sp. Work 4 dc in each ch1sp around. You will have 6 sets of 4 dc stitches when you are finished this round. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. Finish off and weave in ends.

R3: You will be working in the spaces between each set of 4 dc stitches. Join new colour with a sl st, ch 3, 4 dc all in the space between two sets of 4 dc sts. Now, work 5 dc sts in the space between each set of 4 dc sts around. You will have 6 sets of 5 dc sts when you are finished this round. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. Finish off and weave in ends. The cap will be starting to curve into the same shape as the ornament – this is ok!

R4: You will be working in the spaces between the sets of 5 dc stitches. Join new colour with a sl st, ch 3, 5 dc all in the space between two sets of 5 dc sts. Now, work 6 dc sts in the space between each set of 5 dc sts around. You will have 6 sets of 6 dc sts when you are finished this round. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. Finish off and weave in ends.

R5: You will be working in the spaces between the sets of 6 dc stitches. Join new colour with a sl st, ch 3, 6 dc all in the space between two sets of 6 dc sts. Now, work 7 dc sts in the space between each set of 6 dc sts around. You will have 6 sets of 7 dc sts when you are finished this round. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 3 to join. Finish off and weave in ends.

Place wrong sides together (right sides facing out – i.e. the sides you want to show on the outside of the ornament) and join new colour of yarn with a slip stitch in both loops of the top motif and the the bottom motif.

Work a slip stitch through bother layers of the motif, around the motif, until you have joined 3/4s of the way around. Slip the plastic ornament inside the partially closed ornament cover and continue to  sl st up to the very top of the ornament – by the metal cap and neck of the ball. Now sl st around the neckline of the ornament (think of it like a sweater) in the front loop (the loop closest to you) of each stitch to create a finished upper edge.

  1. Hi Kelsey, The only round we have any chain spaces is R1. After this you are working between the sets of double crochet – there are no further chain stitches being added. Hope this helps! I apologize for the delay in my response. I have been taking some time off to recover from an illness. All the best, Rhondda

  2. How many chains do you do in between the dc clusters in each round? Sorry, this may be obvious, but I’m new to crochet. 🙂

  3. Hi Nancy, Of course 🙂 You can sell anything you crochet from one of my patterns. I only ask that if someone needs the pattern itself you send them to me 🙂 Have fun! Rhondda

  4. I have clear bulbs in a box that have not been hung on the tree. They were waiting for this pattern. Thank you.
