When I originally designed this flower ornament I was going to use it as part of a summer curtain that I wanted to crochet. But then I ended up moving again, and so that plan fell through. Maybe one day I’ll get around to finishing it, but for now I’m going to share these as Christmas tree ornaments.
Currently I have two more of these ornament patterns on the way. I actually designed like 10 of them, which I was going to tie up into somewhat of a pattern. Unfortunately, I only wrote three patterns down so that’s all I can publish for now. As for the others, I will get to them as well, but first I need to find them. I’ve packed them up real good, but I’ll find them sooner or later. That’s one of the beauties of moving I guess.
My pattern tester, Kathy, shared her ideas on what you can do with this ornament. Here is what she said:
“I can imagine hanging a bell in the middle or sew seed beads on, or crochet a holly leaf and berry or Poinsettia embellishment and attach where the chain takes off from.”
“They would look nice with a photo in. There are endless ideas for one simple design.”
Thanks Kathy for allowing me to share your ideas with my readers.
This Pattern was Tested By:
Thank you so much for testing this pattern, as well as for your awesome ideas on how to use your creativity in making it even better. Really enjoyed working with you and look forward to working with you again.
Skill Level: Easy
Materials: Yarn: Size 3 Crochet Thread
Hook Size: Steel hook 1/2.75mm
- 4.5cm Plastic Ring – I used a ring from a 4L water bottle, but any similar ring that size will work just as well.
- 2.5cm Plastic Ring – I used a ring from a Great Value 500ml water bottle. (Available at Walmart)
- An exacto Knife to trim the 4.5cm ring.
If using the rings from water bottles, you’ll need to trim off these tabs with an exacto knife. Otherwise they’ll peak through the thread.
