Oh, what fun it is to crochet a sleighful of festive Christmas ornaments! And it's especially delightful to create these happy designs in three different sizes -- just choose from worsted weight yarn, sport weight yarn, or cotton thread. If you can work a slip stitch, single crochet, and double crochet, you can create all of these designs. Bells, pom-poms, beads, and other small items are added for quick color and enchanting detail. And because these designs are simple, you can make plenty of decorations before the holidays arrive! Each of the 12 ornaments is shown three ways: angel, stocking, toy soldier, skate, Santa, gingerbread man, wreath, snowman, ski hat, sweater, bell, and candy cane.

These decorator items are beautiful year-round, and they make wonderful gifts! Each is knit of light/sport weight yarn using four double-pointed needles in size 5 (3.75mm).
