Long Legged Baubles

Four cute long legged festive crochet baubles for you to make in time for Christmas. Let me know how you get on, and try out different looks for your snowman. I fancy making one with a black top hat, or maybe a multicoloured scarf.

They make a wonderful gift and you can whip all 4 of them up using just a few 50g balls of yarn.

 

Materials

Double knit wool in light brown, brown, red, white, black and orange

3mm crochet hook

yarn needle

6mm poly ball

stuffing

 

Gauge – the bauble body should fit snugly around the 6cm foam ball. If your bauble body is too small, try using a larger crochet hook. If your work is too big, use a smaller hook.

 

Abbreviations

This pattern is written in UK crochet terms.

sl st – slip stitch

st – stitch

dc – double crochet

inc – increase (dc 2 stitches into 1)

dec – decrease (miss a stitch, then dc into the next stitch)

(x) – the number of stitches you will have at the end of the row

rnd – round
