Green Christmas Present Ornament Crochet Pattern Notes
Green yarn for main color- (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
Red yarn for accents
“H” hook (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends
Abbreviations used in our patterns:
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet
Green Present Base (Main color):
Using main yarn color for this project (green)
Round 1: Chain 9. Put 1 Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc)
Round 2-7: Work 1 sc into each sc across. Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc). (or continue until desired length)
Round 8: Work 1 sc into each sc across. (8 sc) Pull yarn through and fasten off.
Finish off or if you like a more finished look like me, slip stitch in each stitch all the way around the hat to give it a nice outline.
Note: I always try for a perfect square so I will fold from corner to opposite corner to see if it is a perfect square before finishing off. For mine it worked out to be 8 rounds total.
Red trim and accents on Green Present Ornament:
Using Red yarn (Accent color) make a chain of 9.
Pull yarn through and leave extra length to tie on to top of present and secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.
Make a total of 2 chains following above.
(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. )
Finishing off ornament:
Using a Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle I fixed the “ribbon” parts on to the present in a crossed position like in picture, securing it by weaving through from end to the other of Green present in place.
I then used a scarp of red yarn to bring through piece around top piece of red present embellishment, tied a double knot then finished it in a standard shoelace kind of bow.
That’s it. It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.
