Emily McFarlane said...

Perfect!!! I have made over a dozen of these for my school friends as xmas presents!!!

Jocelyn Sass said...

Emily, I am so glad that you like the pattern! Thank you for posting.

Eric McGriff said...

can anyone tell me how to close the bulb... it says not to join rounds unless told and none of the rounds for the bulb say to join them?

Jocelyn Sass said...

The bulb is made in one continuous Rnd. You do not join or turn the rnd. You just keep working round and round until you get to Rnd 18, where you start to decrease the stitches. When you have 6 stitches left and the ornament is stuffed, you fasten off and sew the small opening closed. I hope this helps you!

Eric McGriff said...

it helps a lot... thanks. I am pretty new to crochet and was very confused. I will continue on and see what happens!!!

Idell Mulhern said...

Jocelyn Sass said...
