Now that Halloween is finally over, let's move on to Christmas!
For the past two years, this gurl has decorated her tree with granny squares!
It was time I came up with some new ornaments.
You can use any size yarn but pick a hook to match.
I used a 3mm hook and Sheepjeswol in stonewash.
These work up quickly!
Let's get started...
CH 4. SL ST to first chain to form a loop.
Row 1: CH 3, 11 DC into loop, SL ST into top of beginning CH 3, insert hook into next DC, attach new color yarn to hook and pull through as a SL ST. (12 stitches)
Row 2: CH3, 2DC in same ST. CH1, SK 1 ST, *3DC in next ST, CH 1, SK 1 ST* repeat from *to* to end. SL ST to top of beginning CH3. Insert hook into next DC (center of cluster), attach new color of yarn to hook and pull through as a SL ST. (6 clusters)
Row 3: CH3, 2DC in same ST. CH1, *3DC in CH1 space from previous row, CH1. SK 1 DC, in next DC (center of cluster) 3 DC, CH1*. Repeat from *to* to end of row, SL ST to top of CH3. (12 clusters)
Row 4. SL ST into all stitches around.
Row 5: Turn. The back side is now facing you. CH 1 and SC around to end. SL ST to CH1. SL ST to center DC.
Make the loop: CH 13 or however long you want your loop. Then SL ST back into the beginning ST to secure.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Hang on the tree, make a garland for your window or use as decoration on your presents.
