5.0 mm “H” crochet hook
Worsted weight acrylic yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red, Paddy Green, Spring Green, and White
Small embroidery hoop
Pom pom trim or ribbon for covering hoop edges
Hot glue gun
Small piece of felt to cover back of ornament
Measuring tape or ruler
Small piece of ribbon for hanging
Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:
Part 1: The Crochet Background
Make a chain that has just a bit of overhang across the width of the hoop.
Row 1: In the second ch from the hook, work a sc. Work a sc in each remaining chain.
Row 2: Ch 1 and turn. Work a sc in each st across.
Repeat row 2 until top and bottom has just a bit of overhang. (I switched colors every two rows)
Part 2 The Cross Stitch Snowflake:
Using a piece of yarn and tapestry needle, stitch the snowflake as shown in the photo below. Use the single crochet stitches and color rows as “boxes” to guide you through each cross stitch.
Part 3: Assembly of the Ornament
Trim sides and back of any excess yarn ends (no need to weave in it won’t show). Run a small stripe of hot glue along back inside edge of the hook and fold ends into the back. Cut a circle of felt (you can use the hoop as a template) and hot glue to back of ornament. Glue pom pom trim or ribbon along outside edge. Use a small piece of ribbon to hang and you’re done!
