I have just untangled myself from many balls of yarn for a minute to be able to let you know that another pattern has been born recently.

It is a pattern for crocheted Christmas Stocking Ornaments.

I guess there’s still enough time for you to create many colorful stockings for your Christmas tree this year!

Hooray!

They are so much fun to make, these little stockings.

And they can even be filled with a treat or two.

Of course, you can make them in as many different colors as you like.

Pure happiness, isn’t it?

Look, if you fill a single stocking with a few tiny little goodies and wrap it with cellophane, you’ll have some really lovely individual presents for your loved ones!

Oh yes.

The project ‘Christmas Ornaments Galore’ continues over here… happily… wholeheartedly… ferociously.

 
Ferociously, Petra?

Oh yes. At times.

 
I am very glad I can present a new happy result of this activity to you today – the Crochet Angel Ornaments.

Angels have always been a true love of mine.

They are so special, lovely and magical, aren’t they? I even like to feed them sometimes.

And these ones, with their colorful little dresses, are also quite playful and whimsical. I think they can make a nice addition to your Christmas tree ornament collection.

Mini Crochet Slippers…and a free pattern too

If these fit you, you shall be my wife.

In other words, I really adore the comment sections below my posts. Often they are a source of very interesting ideas.

Like, for example, there’s this Crochet Slippers Tutorial that I once wrote. And just recently I noticed my friend Drora suggesting that it could be fun to turn those slippers into miniatures.

I fell in love with that idea instantly.

And this is what I made.

Tiny and cute, if I may say so myself.

I thought the mini slippers would look lovely as Christmas ornaments too.

Hm, what do you think?

As I mentioned, I used my Crochet Slippers Pattern to make them. The original pattern only needed a little bit of tweaking and simplifying.

If you’d like to give this tiny little project a try too, then I hope this pattern for mini slippers will be helpful. The pattern uses US crochet terms. I used lace weight yarn and A/0 (2mm) hook…

Round 1: magic ring – ch 1, 6 sc

Round 2: work in spiral, do not join rounds with slip stitches, mark first stitch of each round…
2 sc in first stitch of previous round,
2 sc in all following stitches,
[stitch count: 12]

Round 3: 2 sc in first stitch of previous round,
1 sc in following stitch,

*2 sc in following stitch,
1 sc in following stitch*,

repeat *…* all around,
[stitch count: 18]

Round 4: 1 sc in each stitch [stitch count: 18]

Rounds 5-7: repeat Round 4 [stitch count: 18]

Row 8: 1 Sl stitch in following stitch,
ch 1,
1 sc in 13 following stitches
[stitch count: 14]

Row 9: ch 1, turn,
1 sc in first stitch,
1 sc in all following stitches
[stitch count: 14]

Rows 10-17: repeat Round 9 [stitch count: 14]

Fold the last row in half with the wrong side of the slipper facing out and join the two halves together with slip stitches. Finish off and weave in the ends.

To create a border, attach a yarn of different color to the slipper opening and crochet a single crochet stitch into each stitch all along the opening. Finish off and weave in the ends.

Also, you can use a fabric stiffener to make your mini slippers look neater. I did do that.

My collection of crocheted ornaments for this year’s Christmas tree seems to be slowly coming together. There are more of colorful little decorations to come, so stay tuned.

Have a very lovely week, dear friends!
