I am thrilled to welcome you to my Bauble-ing Along Collection! I have always enjoyed making for the festive season and this year have created a crochet bauble pattern for you to enjoy each day in our crochet along that will be fun, fast and look amazing!

People often tell me that they don’t really want big projects to tackle at this time of year and so these bauble patterns are great because they hardly take ay time at all.

Whip as many or as few of them up as you like, use some of your yarn stash and learn something new as we work through them too. We’re going to explore the world of Fair Isle, tapestry and overlay mosaic crochet together and have an amazing time!

How do I get the all of the Bauble Patterns?

There are a couple of ways to get the crochet bauble patterns depending on what you prefer –

Option 1: View the written patterns on the blog

Find links to all of the baubles right here in this post for you to view on the blog and make from there.

Option 2: Get the Ebook and Course

I know that viewing on the blog with ads isn’t for everyone and if that’s you then the 66 page Ebook and online course is perfect for you!

Better still, it’s on offer during the event at a special discount so grab it if you’d like it!

The beauty of this is that it:

Yarn and Materials

To make my version of the crochet baubles I used Color Theory yarn, 100% acrylic, 246yds/100g, Category #4 weight.

Each bauble uses approx 20g of yarn (50yds) if you’d like to raid your stash!

I will add the exact colours and details I used to each of the blogposts as I publish them.

For the whole collection of baubles I used the following colours:

3 balls of Ivory

1 ball each of Nutmeg, Canyon, Raisin, Satellite, Dijon, Caper, Stonewash and Thunder

Along with your yarn, you will need the following:

  • A 2.75mm(C) crochet hook- my favourites are Clover Soft Touch or Furls Odyssey (use HANJAN15 to save 15%)
  • 8cm/3.15″ plastic baubles available here in a pack of 24: Fillable plastic baubles
  • Alternatively, you could cover existing baubles that you have at home.
  • You could also use Fibre Fill to stuff them or scraps of yarn ends! You just need to make sure to stuff them really full to get a good shape.
  • Pair of sharp scissors
  • Needle
  • Ribbon for hanging

Techniques and Stitches

It’s no secret that I love all kinds of crochet colour work but I know just how scary and intimidating it can be to know where to start!

So, with this collection I’ve created quick and easy baubles that are designed for us to really get the hang of the techniques that we will learn.

We will be working an equal number of Fair Isle, tapestry and overlay mosaic crochet baubles and each is designed to build on the knowledge and techniques that we learn from the previous one – there is method in it I promise!

So, we will be covering lots of things that you probably already know how to do but we will go through everything in detail so even if you aren’t experienced in these techniques then you can absolutely do it too!

Here’s what we will look at together:

  • How to crochet in rounds and increase
  • How decrease in rounds
  • How to work split stitches
  • How to crochet 2 together
  • How to crochet split single crochet, extended single crochet and mosaic stitches
  • How to read crochet charts
  • How to change colours in a round
  • How to work Fair Isle, tapestry and overlay mosaic crochet techniques

So quite a lot really hey?!

If you have experience with most or all of these things then you will have no problem just following along with the written patterns on the blog but if you’d really like to learn about everything in detail then why not grab the course that has so many extras to support you along the way?
