I think this is one of the easiest crochet patterns I've ever done. So it is also wonderfully suitable for all crochet beginners who would like to crochet a few balls for the Christmas tree. All you have to be able to do are single crochets - circular crocheting is also very easy.
Crocheted or knitted Christmas baubles? In one of my first posts on Lisibloggt, I reported in a Discovery of the Week about the knitted Julekulers with Norwegian patterns by Arne and Carlos. You look so beautiful
However, you have to have some experience in Norwegian pattern knitting and you have to be able to knit circular patterns. If that doesn't frighten, go ahead!
Compared to this, however, these instructions are very simple and quick. Even if you are just starting out with crocheting, you can easily crochet a Christmas tree ball - please take a look at my instructions for crocheting for beginners.
What you need: Cotton yarn in your desired color (size 3-4) a crochet hook (size 3) some filler material colorful glass head pins a pair of scissors, a darning needle golden thread for the hangers
How does the mesh ring work? To crochet in the round, you first need a mesh ring. For this you put a loop out of the working thread, into which you then crochet single stitches. I have linked a great video of double pointed needles for crocheting with a thread ring, that will surely help you.
I always make the mesh ring (or thread ring) a little differently, but if you've never crocheted with a mesh ring, the video is definitely worth gold so that you can get an idea of it.
For the Christmas tree ball here you start with a mesh ring of 5 single stitches.
