I know, I know. Christmas just ended, so why am I crocheting an ornament?
One of my goals is to have a Christmas tree decorated with all handmade ornaments. Knowing my track record, I figure I better get started now if I'm going to be ready come December. (Since I'll probably only make one ornament per month and hopefully end up with twelve, I'm looking at a mini-tree for a handmade one this year.) Even I can tackle one ornament per month, right? That's my aim, so this is January's entry. I think I'll tie in each month's ornament to some kind of theme, maybe related to a holiday that month. Or maybe I'll just wing it. Since it's January, I thought a soft blue and white fit this month well.
Anyway, this was nothing more than a simple double-crochet (UK: treble-crochet) circle.
- Chain 5, join with a slip stitch and form a ring.
- Ch 3, 11 dc into ring, join with sl st to close.
- Ch 3, 1 dc into same spot, then 2 dc into every st of previous round, join with sl st to close.
- Ch 3, 1 dc into same spot, *[1 dc into next st, 2 dc into next st]; repeat from * to last, 1 dc, join with sl st to close.
Admire your handiwork!
