What’s better than adding a handmade flair to your Christmas tree?

The memories of trimming the tree stay with us for years to come and those memories are always associated with the ornaments.

I purchase a new tree ornament to dress the tree nearly every year and for the last few years, I have been adding a new handmade decoration to my tree too.

There is nothing better than a quick gift for the many special people in our lives and these vintage inspired crochet ornaments are a perfect little gift that everyone will love.

The great thing about this pattern is simple and quick to make along with featuring my favourite stitch – the granny stitch. I know that the use of the granny stitch in this project is exactly why this pattern has such a vintage feel.
