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: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/886904292/christmas-pudding-crochet-ornament?ref=shop_home_active_5.
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!
