I love the picot single crochet stitch so I try and use it in any designs that I can! I bought some glass baubles to crochet covers over and since I had not designed any holiday patterns using the picot single crochet, I figured a tree ornament would be the perfect item to use it for!
The best part of this pattern is how simple yet elegant it looks! The fun bumpy texture gives it a unique look that’s easy to create and interesting to look at! You could gives these as gifts to kids, coworkers, teachers, or any friends and family! I think these would also be great sellers at holiday markets!

This pattern calls for a medium weight yarn and you can use whatever fiber you’d like! I used Circulo Natural Cotton for the mustard yellow and grey ornament, and used I Love This Cotton for the green. I love cotton for this pattern as it doesn’t fuzz and keeps the ornament very neat and clean looking. Since this pattern uses so little yarn, it’s a great stash busting project, so use what you have and it’s going to look great!
You’re also going to need a 3.25″ round ornament. I used clear, glass ornaments I got from Hobby Lobby (you can use these similar ones from HERE). Since we’ll be covering it, it can be any color and you can also use plastic or acrylic so it’s not so easily breakable!
- This pattern starts with a magic circle but will be worked in rows. Once completed, we will wrap the cover around the ornament and sew up the side.
- The number in parenthesis at the end of each row represents the total number of stitches to be worked in each row.
- Beginning chains do not count as stitches throughout the whole pattern. At the end of each row, chain 1 and turn, work the first stitch into the last stitch from the previous row.
- Stitches between ** are to be repeated until the end of the row or until otherwise stated.
- The right side of your work will show the texture from the PSC stitches. The wrong side will be flat.
- Measure the diameter after working row 4. It should measure between 3”-3.5”. If yours measures smaller or larger, go up or down a hook size until proper gauge is reached.

Insert your hook into the designated stitch. Pull up a loop, yarn over, and pull through the 1st loop on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the 1st loop again. Yarn over and pull through the 1st loop once more. Yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook. Push the CH 3 you just created behind so that it bumps out on the right side of your work and work the next ST.
