Crochet Christmas Baubles



There are so many lovely knitted Christmas baubles out there but since I do not know how to knit I'll had to make my own crochet pattern. So let's crochet some Christmas baubles!

Pattern in Swedish >>

These are pretty quick to make since they mainly are built up by dc's  :)  And the fact that they are perfect if you have kids, that's just a bonus.
