Christmas Pudding Crochet Ornament Pattern

They say the proof of the pudding is in the eating! But with this Christmas pudding ornament, it is most definitely in the crocheting!

For this Christmas, I wanted to recreate the garland items I had made last year out of felt. The felt garland hangs over our fireplace and I love it to bits. So this year, I wanted to challenge myself and recreate some of the ornaments with crochet.

The Christmas pudding crochet pattern ornament is the results of this effort and I am absolutely delighted with how it turned out! Check out the pattern on my Etsy store:

It is made up for a few components crocheted separately: the main body of the pudding, the ‘frosting’ and some holly and ivy. It is the perfect addition for your Christmas tree, garland or wreath. It also makes for a great gift wrapping embellishment for the festive season.

If you want to purchase the full pattern, this includes:

  • Instructions for making and assembling the ornament
  • Row by row instructions, including schematics where needed
  • Video tutorial to support the pattern instructions
  • Extra: separate PDF document with step-by-step photo instructions for the stitches used.

The pattern uses the following beginner-friendly stitches: the slip stitch, the single crochet, the half double, the double crochet and the bobble stitch. The pattern is written in US terminology. The final ornament will measure approximately 4 x 4 inches or 10.5 x 10.5 cm.

You will need a size 3.0 crochet hook and some cotton yarn.

I used Scheepjes Catona in Emerald (515), Hot Red (115), Snow White (106) and Root Beer (157). You will also need a darning needle, some toy/poly-fil stuffing (or yarn/fabric scraps) and a needle and thread.

If you want to know how the final ornament looks, check out part 4 of the video tutorial which is publicly available on my YouTube channel. It will give you a good idea of the different ornament pieces and how they are assembled together.

I hope you enjoy making this pattern! Happy Crochet!
