Bobble Wheel Ornament Pattern

Pattern: Made in K-Town by Barbara

Please respect my rights as designer: do not sell, share, translate, or publish any parts of this pattern (including pictures) online or elsewhere without my permission. Do not claim this pattern as your own. Feel free to sell the finished items you’ve made from my pattern! If you do, a link-back to my blog would be great.
Thank you! 

Material and some general notes:

I used small amounts of cotton yarn and a 2.5mm hook. The ornament is worked around a 4cm (1.6") plastic ring. I used simple and cheap curtain rings, they're available round or flat.

If you're using thicker/thinner yarn or a bigger/smaller ring, you'll have to adjust the number of stitches accordingly: any multiple of 2 will work, make sure you work enough stitches around the ring, because there's no increase in the second round (if you start with too few stitches, the ornament won't lie flat)! Example: for another ornament with acrylic yarn and a 3.5mm hook, I started with 32 stitches.

For this pattern I use US crochet terms. We’ll need the following stitches: chain stitch (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), and treble (tr) (Yes, it's the US treble, we don't need any dcs here).

I don't like dealing with too many ends, so I don't cut the thread of my first color: I secure the loop, and just pick it up again for the last round, it looks quite inconspicuous.

You'll have to turn the work after the third round!

That's it, I hope - maybe we should start now :)


1st Round: Attach the yarn to the ring with a sl st, ch1, then work 42 sc into the ring, join with a sl st to the first sc (42 sc).

2nd Round Ch1, sc in the same st, ch1, skip the next stitch, then repeat (sc, ch1, skip the next stitch) around, join with a sl st to the first sc (21 ch1-spaces).

3rd Round Join a new color with a sl st to any ch1-space, ch1, then work (sc, ch2) into the same space and in every ch1-space around. (21 ch2-spaces). TURN!

4th Round Join (or pick up) your first color again with a sl st to the next ch2-space, ch1, then work (sc, treble, sc) into the same space and in every ch2-space around (21 "bobbles").

Fasten off, weave in the ends, and the Bobble Wheel is finished:

Here's the acrylic version with 32 stitches:

  9. Barbara, Just found this and thought the picture was showing a fashion accessory: a dangle bracelet. It's a lovely ornament, but I think I will make it using a larger plastic ring and just increase the stitches in each row to cover the ring. I think it will be lovely! Thank you for sharing your pattern ;^)
