Some of the tutorials from my blog have gone astray, since I moved from Blogger to WordPress! I am digging them out and republishing them this week, so you can find them easily! I hope you don’t mind! These are the baubles that were in Frankie Magazine in 2010 and Make Hey! too! Feel free to share, but don’t reproduce the pattern for sale. Many thanks!

This is a bit like making a granny square, only easier! And faster!
I used a 3.5mm hook and baby yarn (4 ply) for this grey one.
I got the clear glass baubles at Lincraft and the pink bauble is from Big W.
If you are having trouble crocheting in to the first gap when you go up to the next round, if it feels like you are crocheting backwards, then flip your work over and crochet on the reverse side, as per the instructions.
This pattern can be varied dramatically : do feel free to play around and go wild with this idea!
The baubles I used are 20cm in circumference. But you could use 15cm balls and they would still fit, I reckon! If you go any bigger, you should add one more round (make it the same as round six)
