Crochet Ornaments & Cluster Pattern

by Julie Hirt

Guess what I’ve been making during TV time?   Crochet Christmas ornaments!

My parents had some old ornaments with crochet around satin balls and I wanted to make some for myself using bright colors.

The pink ornament is made from a free pattern by Crochet Geek and it’s nice because you can also follow via video.

The aqua and yellow mesh looking ornament  is also a free pattern by Crochet Geek with a video tutorial. I didn’t add the flower but it’s my favorite base pattern.

Depending on the size of your balls (hahaha) you may need to add a few rows.  Or change it up by changing needle or thread sizes.

The pattern below is for this gray, aqua and red ornament. I also made it in solid red (above).

Top of the ornament – you can see how the last row forms a star pattern.
