The Farmhouse Rustic Ornament

Now back to these ornaments. If you like these ornaments, you will have to thank my cousin Amanda for sending me a picture of a chunky knitted bauble ornament. I loved the big chunky stitches and, of course, I knew I could make them myself. 

When choosing a yarn for this project I wanted something super bulky with great stitch definition. I have worked with the Bernat Maker Big before in for my Summer Day Bag project and knew it would be perfect! Bernat has a new yarn Colorwhirl that would also look beautiful made up into Baubles.

Yarn Substitutions

When I first made this pattern, the Bernat Maker Big was easier to get your hands on, now it can only be found online. I have seen others use T-shirt yarn and it turns out very pretty. You can buy T-shirt yarn or learn to make it here.

I also made the Bauble above using a Jumbo Roving yarn (size 7 yarn) from Loops and Threads at Michaels craft store. This yarn was HUGE, so I used a 15mm (P/Q) hook and the smallest crochet ornament pattern to end up with a 3 in. diameter ornament.

If you are at the yarn store looking for a yarn to use with this pattern, just keep an eye out for any size 7, Jumbo, yarn. You can also use two strands of a Super Bulky (size 6) yarn as well. A good option would be two strands of Lion Brand Thick and Quick. Just use whatever hook gives you good tension. You want the bauble to be stiff enough to hold its shape. Since we do not use stuffing in these crochet ornaments, it is ok if there are some holes between the stitches.

Slst to the next stitch. Fasten off.  

Look at your bauble. Turn it inside out and look at it again. Each side will look a little different, so decided which side you prefer on the outside. Tuck you starting and ending yarn tail into the bauble.

Take a 10 inch piece of twine and weave it through both sides of the bauble. (Shown in the picture below.) Tie a double knot at the bottom. I did not find it necessary to gather the top of this size bauble ornament. Tie another know at the top of the twine to create a ring to use to hang the bauble. Your small bauble it complete.
