Free Crochet Pattern – Rustic Farmhouse Ornaments

It’s November so it’s time to bust out the Christmas Decorations!  I’m starting early this year and I’m determined to finish everything before December.  I know that’s ambitious but we all need goals! If you loved our Rustic Farmhouse Pumpkins you’re going to Love our Rustic Farmhouse Ornaments.

This is the first pattern to release in my Rustic Farmhouse Collection.  Each design is worked up in bulky yarn or holding together 2 strands of worsted weight.  That means they work up quick and can easily be completed before Christmas.  You only need a small amount of yarn for each ornament but buy lots because I guarantee you’ll be whipping them up like hot cakes!

Display your ornaments in a bowl or decorate your Christmas Tree.  This makes a fun project for kids too.  Watch my new Beginner How to Crochet Series to get started on YouTube
