Last week I was in the mood for a quick, seasonal project, so I grabbed some faux fur yarn that I had in my stash and worked up some of these chic Christmas baubles.
These are very trendy this season; while out shopping this week, I saw a tree at one store that was decorated entirely in fuzzy pink and white ornaments! It was gorgeous. But, hey, we’re crafters! We can make it!
This pattern is SIMPLE. Warning: you’ll probably have fifteen of these made by bedtime.
This pattern is worked in continuous rounds. Fur yarn can be tricky to work with, so definitely use a stitch marker to mark the first st of each round! A big hook helps, but you will mostly need to “feel” for the next stitch (p.s. fur yarn is very forgiving so it’s okay if the stitches aren’t perfect!)
Let’s get started! (Or Pin/Shop for later!)

Tie off, leaving a long tail for closing.
Your bauble will probably be a bit egg-shaped. Stuff the bauble now, being sure to fill out the sides of the bauble so that it takes on a perfectly round shape.
When you are satisfied with the stuffing, using your tapestry needle, weave the yarn tail through stitches of the last row and then down through the centre of the bauble and out a stitch in the side. Pull firmly to close. Snip yarn tail.
Cut a length of ribbon or yarn (or use an ornament hook) and weave through any stitch. Tie a knot in the ribbon and you’re done!
