  • A small amount of Yarn of Choice
  • Appropriate Hook Size
  • Tapestry Needle


  • A – Green
  • B – Red
  • C – White


The pattern comes in 2 sizes, Small, and Large.

With Sport weight cotton yarn (I used Schachenmayr Catania) and a 2.5-mm (C/2 US, 12 UK) hook, your baubles will measure:

  • Small – 0.8″ (2 cm)
  • Large – 1.3″ (3.3 cm)


This pattern is too small to accurately determine the gauge. Just keep in mind that the final size will depend on the yarn and hook you use.
