CROCHET TERMS 

Stitch/es (st/s)

Chain (Ch): Yarn over, pull through one loop on hook.

Double Crochet(s): dc(s):  Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, you will have two loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.

Treble crochet (tr): Yarn over and insert your hook into the chain or stitch, yarn over and pull through (you will have three loops on the hook) yarn over and pull through two loops (you will have two loops on your hook) yarn over and pull the yarn through both of the remaining loops on the hook.

Slip Stitch (sl st): Insert hook, yarn over, pull through both stitch and loop on hook.

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions.

PATTERN STARTS

LARGE TOPPER 

Using YARN A Create a loop on your hook leave a tail of approx. 15cm

Round 1: 48dc sts over your ring, join with a sl st (48sts)

Fasten off your yarn A but leave a tail of approx. 15cm

Round 2: Join Yarn B in the first st, ch1, 1dc in the same st, 1dc in each st around. Do not join this round. 

Fasten off Yarn B and weave in the loose ends.

Take the two tails from Yarn A and tie them together at the top with a knot, this will allow the topper to be hung. 

SMALL TOPPERS 

Using YARN A Create a loop on your hook leave a tail of approx. 15cm

Round 1:  26dc sts over your ring, join with a sl st (26sts)

*TIP – If you’re finding it too tricky to work back into the sts around your ring with the tinsel yarn, use a bigger size hook for Round 1 and a smaller for Round 2.
