01Ornament

[Starting in Top Color] Magic Loop leaving a long tail end

Rnd 1: sc 6 into the magic loop (6)

In Rnd 2, work around the tail end for the first 6 sts. Then pull the tail end loop through the center, but not all the way. Create a loop as long as you'd like the hanger to be. Work around the rest of the tail end that is left on the inside for the remaining sts in Rnd 2.

Rnd 2: inc in each (12)

Rnd 3: slst 1, ch 1, Working in the BLO, sc in each, slst in first sc made to connect (12)

Advanced Technique

To make a slightly sharper edge try this advanced technique! Instead of just working in the BLO for Rnd 3, try working in the BLO and the horizontal bar from the stitch under as well. This should give your edge a bit more stability and a sharper edge, but is not necessary.

Rnd 4: working in the FLO, [sc 1, inc 1] 6 times (18)

Rnd 5: [sc 5, inc 1] 3 times (21)

Rnd 6: [sc 6, inc 1] 3 times (24)

Rnds 7 - 10: sc in each (24 x 4)

Rnd 11: [sc 6, invdec 1] 3 times (21)

Rnd 12: [sc 5, invdec 1] 3 times (18)

Add a face. I like putting eyes in Rnd 8, sts 9 and 13, with a smile between (see next section).

Rnd 13: [sc 1, invdec 1] 6 times (12)

Rnd 14: invdec in each (6)

Stuff fully and sew closed.

02Adding a Face

To add a face I like to start with the mouth, then add eyes using safety eyes on either end of the edges of the mouth 1 stitch away. I personally like adding my face centered on the ornament in Rnd 8.

Simple Smile

1. Using Black thread insert the needle from the inside of the body and exiting where you want a smile to begin.

2. Pull to the opposite corner of where you want the smile to end, and insert your needle back into the body. This will create a straight line.

3. Insert your needle to exit the body where you want the bottom of the smile to be. Go around the straight line and insert back into the body through the same stitch you last exited.

4. Double knot the two ends on the inside of the body and cut close.
