Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! Today I have for you another amazing (and totally free) Christmas ornament pattern! I took the inspiration off of someone else’s piece I saw at a craft fair I went to a few months back! I really liked their idea, so I re-imagined it, worked a little magic, and TA-DA this is the product I have come up with!
I have for you the written pattern, and a video tutorial! (Check it out, down below!)
This pattern is really easy and quick to work up, plus it is totally customizable based on your own personal style/ preference!
Let’s take a look at the pattern!
- Yarn (Recommendation- Red Heart brand yarn) (You can literally choose any color you want here! You can even do multiple colors on the same boot or two different colored boots!)
- Yarn needle (For sewing in ends)
Abbreviations to Know-
- Ch- Chain
- St(s)- stitch(es)
- Sl st- slip stitch
- Dc- double crochet
- Hdc- half double crochet
- F/O – Finish off (Cut yarn, tie ends)
Step 1- Pattern
Row 1: Ch 11, dc in 2nd st from hook, ch 3
Row 2: Dc 5 (making sure not to dc in the same st as the ch 3 from the last round) (You will have 6 sts at this point because we count the ch 3 as a dc) 4 sl st, ch 1 turn
Row 3: 4 hdc (NOTE: These sts will be likely be hard to get into the work- that’s okay! I had struggles too 🙂 ) 1 sl st, dc 5 (NOTE: Your last DC will be into the ch 3) ch 3, turn
Row 4: Dc 4 (5 sts in total, counting the ch 3) ch 3, turn
Row 5: Dc 4 (NOTE: Your last DC will be into the ch 3) F/O
Repeat this process 3 more times (If you want to double-back your ornament. If you want to leave your ornament as-is repeat this process once more! Don’t understand? will be explained in the next step!)
Step 2- Crocheting Boots Together (Optional!)
If you want to make your ornament thicker, we will be crocheting two of the boots back to back (In my opinion it looks better this way!) So, take two of your boots (NOTE: Make sure they are facing the same way) And sl st the two together.
As you can see on the side here, there isn’t really distinct stitches you need to be stitching into, so just make sure you aren’t leaving big gaps in your crochet! As you get further along, you will see stitches to stitch into!
IMPORTANT- I recommend sl st twice into the corners to avoid them from looking too rounded!
You have the option of leaving the top of the boot open, but I choose to close mine up!
Finish off. Repeat this process with the other boot.
Step 3- Connecting Boots Together
This is the easy step! Insert your hook into the top corner of one of the boots, tie your yarn, cut a section of the string as long as you’d like (This is the part you will be hanging the ornament with, so I recommend a string around 2 1/2″ inches long!) Then tie the other side to the other corner of the second boot (I recommend facing them away from each other, but that’s optional!)
There you have it! You have a cute, small set of boot to hang on your tree or around your house! I am a big fan of these quick work up projects since I don’t have a lot of time on my hands to crochet anymore! Which doesn’t make sense since all I do is post about crochet right? Hah, go figure!)
