Make your Christmas tree special and unique with a set of crochet Christmas Baubles!
With today’s pattern, the Simple Christmas Baubles, I’d like to introduce a series of Amigurumi baubles.
All the patterns in this series share the same bauble pattern and size but are decorated in different ways to create a fun set for Christmas, which includes:
- Simple Bauble
- Gingerbread Man & Christmas Pudding Bauble
- Snowman Bauble
- Reindeer Bauble
- Gnome Bauble
All these patterns will appear here on the blog in the coming days as part of my Christmas Ornaments Marathon CAL.
Or you can already get all the patterns by getting the PDF pattern!
