Christmas – crochet baubles.

 

Christmas crochet ideas.

If you are looking for a quick make for Christmas, then these little crochet baubles are great fun. This is a very simple pattern and would be suitable for a beginner. They would be a cute little gift and are quick to make up. You could make some for your Secret Santa recipient.

Please note that I use US terminology in my patterns.

 

You can make these from any yarn depending on what you would like to use them for. I have made today’s in DK and they are sweet little coasters to use at Christmas.

What you will need:

  • yarn (I used double knit) one colour and grey
  • 5mm hook
  • scissors
  • needle for weaving in ends

Please note: I use US terminology in my patterns.

What can you use the Christmas baubles for?

I have used the baubles as little coasters. I have made some out of DK yarn and some out of chunky yarn – I still used my number 5 hook – it is my favourite. You could make a set in lots of different colours as coasters, or you could make them and string them along a ribbon or make a long chain stitch and use them as Christmas bunting.

Do you want some baubles, but don’t crochet?

I have made some sets of coasters and have them for sale in my Babyhatbaby Shop. If you would like to look at them, please click on the link below:

For my shop I have made them in chunky wool, but I am happy to take custom orders. If you would like them in double knit or would like more of them, please let me know.

What if I want larger baubles?

You could make larger baubles by carrying on in the same way. The third round worked in multiples of 3. The fourth round would be multiples of 4 so you would do 2 double crochet and then double crochet 2 in the next stitch. The fifth round would be multiples of 5, so dc 3 and the 2dc in the next. And so on… you could make matching coasters and place mats for your Christmas dinner table. If the coasters were for glasses, I would use DK rather than chunky yarn.

I really hope that you find this pattern useful and give it a go. Let me know how you get on by leaving a comment or messaging me on my social media channels.

Happy crocheting
