An easy and effective Brioche-based bauble decoration, with a range of sizes and different pattern options. Perfect for using up yarn scraps.

Two pattern options are included, and have full written instructions for three sizes (S, M, L).

Worked in a bulky yarn, these baubles work up quickly. Two balls of New Lanark Chunky (132 yds / 121 m per 100g) are sufficient to make all of the patterns (6 in total) provided in the instructions below.

Samples are shown in New Lanark Chunky, in the Cherry and Ecru colourways.
