About Snowfall Bauble Christmas Ornament.
The Snowfall Bauble is a crochet Christmas ornament pattern based on the countless Hallmark Christmas movies I used to watch growing up. There was always a house with a tree next to it and don’t forget the snow!
I used Stylecraft special DK in Pale Rose and Raspberry left over from a previous project with my 3 mm crochet hook. You can play around with different hook sizes and yarn weights to get different sized baubles. Here’s one I did in my 2.5mm hook and fingering weight yarn.

- The pattern is worked in BLO- Back Loop Only
- For a tutorial on how to work and secure the magic circle, visit this post on my blog- https://www.morinesshop.com/how-to-work-and-secure-the-magic-circle/
- A portion of the pattern is worked in intarsia crochet technique. If you are unsure of how to do this, check out the tips and tutorial post I have provided on my blog- https://www.morinesshop.com/intarsia-crochet-tutorial
- When working colour changes, work as a typical sc until you have 2 loops on your hook. Drop the colour you are not using. Use the new colour to yarn over and pull through both loops. Pick the old colour back up when you need it in the following rounds
- Since the whole pattern is worked in sc, I have omitted the usual sc where colour changes begin and instead use the associated colour instead. For example MC4, CC5, MC1 means to work the next 4 stitches in your main colour (pale rose in this pattern), the next 5 stitches in your contrasting colour (raspberry in this pattern) and the next stitch in your main colour.
