Milk & Cookies Ornament Crochet Pattern


Crochet milk & cookies ornament

Day 7 of the 12 Days of Crochet Christmas is this cute milk & cookies ornament crochet pattern.

Not gonna lie but I think this one is my favourite out of the lot. I mean just look at that itty bitty chocolate chip cookie. It’s small size does make it a fair bit of work but the extra fun part is that it can be removed and used as a stitch marker.

If you don’t have the supplies to make it into a stitch marker, you could always use some yarn to hang it on there or leave it off entirely, it’ll still look cute.

NOTES

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 2″ (5.5cm) tall 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.

Insert safety eyes between R10 and R11, 5 sts apart.

Using a single strand of embroidery floss, sew a little mouth between the eyes.

COOKIE (make 2, beige)

Fasten off invisibly and weave in end.

Using all 6 strands of dark brown embroidery floss, randomly sew french knots on the front of the cookie to mimic chocolate chips. Weave in ends. If the french knots are too fiddly you can just sew lines over single stitches.

Using a pair of pliers, add the lever back earring to the jump ring and poke the jump ring through the back of any stitch on the last round of the cookie. Close the jump ring.

Open the lever back earring and poke through a stitch on R20 on the side of the glass. Close earring.

Attach a hanging loop to the centre of the milk top.
