Flatland Christmas Baubles Crochet Pattern

So if you had a chance to see my crochet Christmas tree, you'll notice that I have some "flat" Christmas baubles on there. I didn't want to get overly 3D since my Christmas tree was flat.

I thought I might share the crochet pattern for my "flatland" Christmas Baubles in case you might be interested in making some yourself! I'm sure they'll work well on 3D Christmas trees as well! They're also quick to make. I trust that you can make about half a dozen in an afternoon/evening sitting.

So if your tree is looking a little bare this year, consider some of these flatland Christmas baubles! They look great on 3D Christmas trees too. I figured I should publish the pattern before Christmas is over. So let's get to it!

Pattern

Round 1: Magic Ring with a base of 7 sc (7sts)

Fasten Off Invisibly:
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto the yarn/tapestry needle. Skip one stitch then insert the needle into the next stitch in the same way you would your crochet hook (see photo 1). Next insert needle back into the same stitch that the yarn tail is coming from but into the back loop only (see photo 2). Pull gently (see photo 3) - this creates a faux stitch that looks like the skipped stitch. Weave the tail into the wrong side before trimming.

Join the Grey yarn with a Standing Single Crochet to make the Bauble Cap:
Make a slip knot onto the hook then insert the hook into indicated stitch (see photo 1). Wrap yarn around hook and pull loop through (see photo 2), wrap yarn around hook and pull through 2 loops to complete the single crochet (see photo 3).

Make two pieces for the front and back. Then put the two pieces together with the wrong side facing each other. Single crochet along the edges changing colours when needed to, stuff with a little bit of leftover yarn ends or polyfill stuffing prior to closing.
