Mini Christmas Bauble | free crochet pattern

mini crochet Christmas bauble in pastel colors

I love these teeny tiny little baubles! I think they would look so sweet hung up on a little Christmas tree, but they would also look adorable tied to a Christmas gift or hung in a garland. You can use whatever colors you like, bright and bold, classic and elegant or pretty and pastel. Enjoy this mini Christmas bauble crochet pattern!

I crocheted my toppers using Gold Lurex. I love the look and sparkle that the Lurex gives, but just a warning: it is not easy to work with! It can split very easily, is springy and is hard on your hands. If you want something a bit more gentle then you many need to consider an acrylic or cotton in a gold shade, or with some added sparkle. Bear in mind that you may need to hold the yarn double to achieve the correct weight!
