12 Days of Baubles Part 2 features four quick and fun bauble cozies perfect for gifting or decorating your own tree. A variety of techniques ensures that you can use this pattern on all the yarns in your advent set, whether they be speckled, solid, variegated or striped.

Day 5 is a simple twisted rib ornament cover which is designed to be your swatch project. For best results, it should be worked first. If you find that the row or stitch gauge is off, or you do not like the fabric that is produced, adjust your needle size to knit the remaining bauble covers.
Day 6 is a fab textured bauble cozy using slipped stitches on a garter background.
Day 7 incorporates a delicate leaf lace pattern around its midsection.
Day 8 sports a neat spiral rib that does not require a cable needle!

These bauble covers are designed to fit a 2 to 2.63” / 51 to 67 mm plastic ornament. I found the ornaments at my local A.C. Moore store.
For a few rounds, you will be creating your stitches with the plastic bauble nestled inside the knitted fabric. For your safety, please do not use a glass ornament to create this project!
