For the 2019 Handmade Ornament Exchange, my partner’s request was for black buffalo plaid. I made these ornaments to send her.


  • Small Amount of Lightweight #3 Yarn - I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Sportweight Yarn in Black and White, and Baby Bee’s Sweet Delight in Elephant Gray
  • G6/4mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
  • Styrofoam Balls – 2.8″ for Medium, and 3.8″ for Large (Got mine from Hobby Lobby)

Material Notes:
Yarn Alternatives: Vanna’s Glamour, Berroco’s Vintage DK.

In place of the styrofoam balls, you can stuff the ornaments, or you can use bauble ornaments in place of the styrofoam balls – that’s how I did my original set of Celtic Weave Bauble Ornaments (Free Crochet Pattern). I had bought a tube of 7 from my local Dollar Tree, and they measured 7 1/2″ around, and was able to follow the instructions for the Small size.

Time Spent:
I spent about an hour on the Medium size, and an hour and a half on the Large size.
