About Favorite Christmas Ornament 2022

This years Favorite Christmas Ornament ❤️

I love texture, which gives some vivid shapes and depths. Here on this edition, I tested many different techniques, and ended up with these incomplete puff stitches that lie like pearls on a string. As always crocheted in the classic Christmas colours: A good dark red, white and gold.

Before you get started

The video here goes through the different techniques, and is a good support for the pattern. It’s a good idea to see it before you start, unless you are quite experienced 🤗 (Turn on US subtitles)

Increases

Make 1 stitch into 2: At an increase you crochet 2 single crochet in the same stitch.

Decrease

Gather 2 stitches into 1: At a decrease, insert the hook into the first stitch of the two stitches, yarn over and pull through, insert the hook into the second stitch, yarn over and pull through, and pull the yarn through the 3 loops on your hook.

Incomplete puff stitches

Yarn over, and insert your hook into the stitch, yarn over and pull through. You do this 4 times in total, after which you yarn over and pull through all the loops on the hook, followed by a tight sc in the next stitch. 

From the top (almost) every time

After the chain, you make a turning chain (tch) to turn. After this row you end each row with a chain (to lock) and you cut the yarn. On the next row, you put on new yarnend at the beginning of the piece again, where you pull the loop high before making your first sc in the row.

More designs and versions if you buy the pattern

Start with a long end (30-40 cm) – it will be used for sewing, when you have finished crocheting 🤗

START (white) Looong start-end (about 30 cm – used for sewing): 31 chains + 1 tch, turn (31)

R 1 (white) SC-row: 1 sc inc, 28 sc, 1 sc dec, 1 ch, cut the yarn (31)

R 2 ( gold) Like row 1 (31)

R 3 (red) Like row 1 (31)

R 4 (red) IPS-row: 1 sc ind, 2 sc, (1 ips, 1 sc) x 12 times, 2 sc,  1 sc dec, 1 chain, cut the yarn (31)

R 5 (red) Like row 1 (31)

R 6 (gold) Like row 1 (31)

Repeat R 1-6 until you reach 30 rows in total.

Finish with a chain, tighten it and cut the yarn. If your final color is glitter yarn, just cut to normal length as it’s not strong enough to sew with. If your final color is one in cotton, leave 30-40 cm to sew together.

Gather uuuup!

Yndlingsjulekuglen 2022

Lay your piece in front of you, so you have your long starting end to the left.

Then you have the front side up, and it must be sewn together, with the front facing out.

Sew it together, so you get a tube. Fold the ends in over the piece, so you have your fornt facing out. Sew op in the gold stitches …

… and sew down around the single crochet. Tighten it well as you sew.

Yndlingsjulekuglen 2022

With some good large stitches, you sew around the ends. Then pull it together, so the hole closes. If the hole isn’t all closed or you want a color to meet in the middle, just take one more round. Here you only sew in the color you want to meet in the middle.

Fill it WELL so it gets completely firm and round. Now take a new thread and sew around again.

Now tie on a strap / hanger.
