Christmas Pudding Ornament Crochet Pattern


Crochet Christmas pudding ornament

Day 11 of the 12 Days of Crochet Christmas is a sweet Christmas pudding ornament pattern.

To be honest I’m not super familiar with Christmas pudding. I’ve had it before but not for a very long time. I always think it looks cute and Christmassy though with the berries and holly leaves on top.

The pattern is quick and easy with all the parts being made separately and assembled at the end. I added a white accent to the eyes so they stand out more against the brown yarn. It also gives it a bit more character.

NOTES

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 2″ x 2″ (5cm x 5cm) when using the materials listed.

Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.

Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.
