Hello Everyone!

I have been using the same Christmas decorations for the past three years. Got bored this year and decided to give it a more personal touch to my tree this year. Of course by making my own ornaments… duh!

I had a red and black and a black and white buffalo plaid fabric at hand and I thought it will go great with just simple crochet balls in white and red. 

The materials needed for this project are:

White Acrylic Yarn

Crochet hook (go with the recommended size in the yarn label)

Yarn Needle

Polyfill (to stuff the ball)

Stitch Marker

Scissors

Buffalo Plaid Fabric

Sewing needle

Black Thread

3/8 Black Ribbon (could be grosgrain or satin)

A lighter

Pattern:

Abbreviations:

St: stitch

Sts: stitches

Sc: single crochet

Inc: increase

Dec: decrease

  • Make a magic ring
  • sc 6 into the magic ring
  • Sc1, place marker, increase. increase in every stitch until the end of the row
  • Round 2: *1 sc, 1 inc*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Round 3: 1 sc, 1 inc, *2 sc, 1 inc*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Round 4: *3 sc, 1 inc*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Round 5: 2 sc, 1 inc, *4 sc, 1 inc*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Round 6 – 12: 1sc in every st
  • Round 13: 2 sc, 1 dec, *4 sc, 1 dec*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Round 14: *3 sc, 1 dec*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Round 15: 1 sc, 1 dec, *2 sc, 1 dec*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Round 16: *1 sc, 1 dec*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round
  • Fill the ball with Polyfill
  • Round 17: dec in every st until the end of the round
  • Fasten off, cut yarn, and weave ends.

Marking the Bow:

  • Cut a piece of the buffalo plaid fabric. About 4 1/2 x 3 1/2. Fold it in like an accordion to form the bow. 
  • Take the sewing needle and thread. Cut a piece of thread and thread the sewing needle, make a couple of stitches in the center of the bow where all the folds meet. 
  • cut a small piece of ribbon. place it in the middle of the bow and stitch it. Stitch the finished bow to the top of the ball. Cut a piece of yarn and thread it in the yarn needle, run the needle to the back of the bow and take the needle off the yarn. tie it to form a loop and you’re done!

The bow is ready to be hung in the Christmas tree!
