Introduction: Simple Statement Ornaments

About: I like yarn. I crochet and knit my life away.

Originally posted on Goodknits the following instructions are for crochet ornaments. Yarn is attached via single crochet around the wooden cabone ring and then a simple 2 row border is made.

Supplies needed:
2″ cabone ring (I used wooden ones by Boye)
3.75mm (F) hook
small amount (approx. 10 yards) of worsted weight yarn

Step 1: Covering the Ring

one: start with a slip-knot around your hook and grab a loop from front to back through the ring (two loops on hook)

two: yarn-over and pull through both loops on hook

three: grab another loop from front to back through the ring (two loops on hook)

four: yarn-over and pull through both loops on hook

Step 2: Repeat

Repeat steps three & four until you have 45 stitches around your ring. If you are going with a larger or smaller ring, make sure you end with a multiple of THREE.

Slip-stitch to first stitch, then begin border rounds.

Step 3: Border

Border Round 1: Ch 1 and SC into same stitch, ch 4, *skip 2 stitches, sc into next stitch, ch 4; repeat from * until 2 stitches remain. Ch 2, DC into first SC. (15 loops if you began with 45 stitches around the ring)

Border Round 2: Ch 5, SC into first ch-4 loop, ch 5, *sc into next ch-4 loop, ch 5; repeat from * around, ending with a slip stitch into top of DC of last round. (15 loops)

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Use those regular wire ornament hooks to hang them from your tree. Or string them up like a garland. Or make a mobile. Or use them on gifts. The possibilities are endless!

    You know those rings around the lids of milk & juice jugs? They work great for making this as an attachment/accessory for a pretty Christmas present!

    Really nice, I am not that good at crochet, knitting and sewing is my thing, but I think I may have to make some of these :)

    I just love how beautiful this is even though it is so simple! I'm glad I learned to crochet!
