Finial Ball Christmas Ornament


Here is the fourth in this series of crocheted christmas ornaments to decorate your tree. This one is a complex finial drop ornament.

The christmas ornaments are inspired by classic glass christmas ornaments.




For these ornaments, I am using a sparkly light fingering
weight yarn (I used Loops and Threads Payette yarn
in icicle, ruby red, and sterling silver) with a 3.25mm (D) hook.

I love the sparkly thread running through the yarn
and the occasional piece of sequins.
They give the ornaments just the right sparkly touch
that will look great when christmas lights reflect off of them!


This finial christmas ornament measures about about 4.5 inches long and 2.25 inches in diameter at its widest point.
