Crochet DIY Christmas Baubles Ornament- Free Pattern
The pattern is written in US crochet terms!
In the pattern, I will show you how to crochet the baubles with sport weight yarn. But I will also tell you how to adjust the pattern for any weight and size!
To make the baubles we will crochet two separate circle motifs and later join them into a bauble.
For my Christmas baubles, I used 8 cm styrofoam baubles. You can easily replace them with plastic ones or with old Christmas baubles that you have!
worsted weight yarn or sport weight yarn
crochet hook size 4mm
styrofoam baubles/ plastic baubles/ old plastic baubles- 8cm in size or bigger
tapestry needle and pair of scissors

How to adjust the Christmas bauble pattern to fit any size and any weight of yarn?
Let’s start with the bauble size. If you have a bauble that is 8cm in diameter you will need a crochet circle motif that measures 10cm in diameter.
Usually, when you buy plastic or styrofoam balls the size is written on the package. If it is not you can measure your ball from top center to bottom center!
Therefore if you have a 10cm ball you will need to crochet a larger circle motif or add one or two more rounds worked in a single crochet stitch!
For example, the red and white bauble from the picture is crocheted with worsted weight yarn (I used yarn bee soft and sleek solids) with a 4mm crochet hook. To make the circle fit the bauble I made a decrease in my second round of SC.
In conclusion, after you are done with the coaster and your first round of single crochet place your circle around the ball and measure it. If you see that it is bigger then make a decrease in the second round.
Adjusted second round for worsted weight yarn–>
CH 1, SC in very first stitch, SC in next, dec 1, *SC in next 2, dec 1* rep around, sl st to join. FO.

For my baubles, I used the crochet Flower coaster pattern we shared with you yesterday! The base of our bauble is made using the coaster and adding 2 more rounds of single crochet.
The single crochet rounds will turn your coaster into a slightly folded circle! Therefore when you wrap them around your ball they will cover your bauble perfectly!

How to join crochet circles into a bauble?
Once you have followed the coaster pattern and crocheted two pieces it is time to turn them into circles.
Throughout the first single crochet round, we will work in the back loop of the stitches. This will help the flower to pop up better!
Starting the first round of single crochet:
Take your flower coaster and contrasting yarn- I used white. In the coaster, you have 12 petals. Each petal has a CH 5 and 3 triple crochets. Insert your hook in any petal’s last chain of the CH5 and pull a loop, then make a single crochet into the same stitch, and make SC into each of the next 3 stitches, continue making SC into the 4 stitches of each petal till the end, join with sl st on top of the first stitch.
Starting the second round:
Ch 1, SC into the very first stitch, SC into each stitch around, sl st to join. FO. (48 sts)
Repeat the same steps for the second piece.
How to join your Christmas bauble?
Now that we have both of the pieces done it is time to join them. For the join, we will use the sl st joining. You can also sew both sides with a tapestry needle.
Take both your circles and place them with the wrong side facing each other. The right side must be pointing out!
Insert your hook through the stitches on both sides and make a sl st, keep repeating this till you have joined half of your circles. When you are halfway through insert your ball and continue joining and closing your baubles.
