Who fancies a super quick festive make?
I’d had a lot of part balls of some super chunky yarn, so I grabbed them, and my hook, and had a little play!
This is super duper quick, it might be helped by the huge hook size too, but we’ll ignore that.
Even better – I didn’t have any ends to sew in either – as I used them to stuff the baubles!
I made a few, and they are very festoony like… then I made some more!
The yarn, made with one of my favourite super chunkys – which you can read all about here.

Hints and tips
You are working using amigurumi to make the baubles.
Ensure all ends are stuffed into the baubles.
You will need a stitch marker (somewhere safe) to store the string of baubles, as you add to it as you go.
Pattern (USA terms)
With the platinum yarn and the 8 mm hook, ch 20.
Add a stitch marker to the last ch, and pick up the Colbalt yarn.
Make a magic ring, 4 sc in the ring.
