‘Bauble’ Ornaments | Crochet Pattern

I thought yarn ornaments would make a great gift idea for friends & family!  I decided to start with the most simple design first – the classic “bauble”! The design can be altered in many ways! The possibilities are endless! This is a great project for first time amigurumi!

Yarn: medium worsted weight; approx. 10 yds

[Red Heart Super Saver]20141204_101330

Hook: Size G / US 6 (4.0 mm)

Materials: stitch marker

Filling/stuffing [Fiberfill]

Scissors & tapestry needle

Gauge: 8 sts & 8 rows = 2 inches

Final measurements: 

Circumference- approx. 6 inches

Length- approx. 3 inches

The pattern:

Color A – begin with magic ring & ch 1 to secure.

Round 1: 6 sc in magic ring

Round 2: 2 sc in ea st (12 st)

Round 3: *2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st* (18 st)

Round 4: *2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st* (24 st)

Round 5-9: sc in ea st

Round 10: *sc2tog, 1 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st*

Round 11: *sc2tog, 1 sc in next st*

It is after this round that I like to stuff my ball.

Round 12: *sc2tog*

Cut yarn, leaving a tail. Thread tapestry needle and close hole by entering the front loop of each stitch from the back to the front.  Do this for all 6 stitches.  Pull tight to close your hole and thread end into your ball.

Make top –

Color B – Start with magic ring & ch 1 to secure.

Round 1: 6 sc in the magic ring.

Round 2: sc in ea st, back loop only. sl st to join.

Cut yarn leaving a tail.  Invisible seam stitch the top to your bauble.  Use the yarn to create a loop for hanging as well. Sew end in ball.

Pattern Notes: Amigurumi is worked in a continual round. Therefore there are no slip stitches or chains in this pattern.  Work an invisible decrease stitch for sc2tog.  To make a bigger bauble add additional increase rounds.  Round 5: 2 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc (30 st). Round 6: 2 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc (36 st).

I am making a lot of these this season!  I plan to make a full set as gifts for some people who I know would be tickled to receive handmade ornaments.  I also plan to give a few out as “extra” gifts.

First time doing amigurumi and it was so simple & fun!  I can’t wait to make more creations \(^_^)/
