In­struc­tions

To make a magic ring, you’ll need to hold the yarn in your hand and wrap the work­ing yarn around your fore­fin­ger twice to cre­ate a ring, slip the ring off your fin­ger and insert the hook to pick up first st, ch1, then work the nec­es­sary sts for Round 1. Close the ring tightly by pulling the loose end.

The baubles can be worked in any colour combo you like, so where the pat­tern reads Yarn A, B or C, use your choice of yarn. If you’re new to cro­chet, head to www.molliemake­s.com to find video tu­to­ri­als for each stitch.
