Retro Crochet Ornament Pattern

These were a joy to make and really easy too. Using everyday yarn and simple stitch, I was able to design two simple semi circles that are easily sewn around glass ornaments. The stitches used are simple enough making it perfect for a beginner crocheter. Think of it as a spherical 2 squared granny square blanket. I decided that this particular project is not supposed to be taken too seriously, so have fun with your colors! For this collection I went with 80’s/90’s ski wear as my inspiration. I tried to keep to a similar yarn size, but even that is unnecessary. The thinner the yarn the more ornament will be exposed and that could be very nice too. Especially if you wrap a mirrored glass ornament!

I hope the pattern is easy enough to read and I’ve created a charted graph to help visualize the pattern. I am admittedly not that great at written patterns, so if you have any suggestions or corrections, please let me know in a comment below.
