Crochet Robin Bauble pattern:
Pattern Overview – 2 Easy Steps
- Make the first bauble half.
- As you make the second half, join with the first half in the last round.
1. Make The First Half Of Your Bauble.
Start with a sliding loop / magic ring in red.
Rnd1 (Red + Yellow) Ch 3 (counts as dc), 9 dc in ring, change color to yellow, 3 dc in ring, change color to red, dc in ring, join with sl st to top of ch-3. (14)
Rnd2 (Brown) Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in same st, 2 dc in next st and every st, join with sl st to top of ch-3. (28)
Rnd3 (Cream) Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next st and every st, join with sl st to top of ch-3, fasten off. (28)
Take a bit of black yarn, say 12″, and pick a post above the beak in the brown round where your first eye will be. With your hook, wrap the yarn around the post three times. Then pick another post for the second eye and repeat.
Weave in or tie off the ends.
2. As you make the second half, join with the first half in the last round.
Repeat the first 2 rounds to make the second half. Make the eyes and take care of the ends.
As you make the third round, join with the first half as follows. In the third round, ch 3 and remove the hook from the loop. Align your crochet robin faces, the right side out, so their beaks and eyes are matching. Pick a space between posts on the half you’re joining with that is nearest to your ch-3. Insert the hook back to front through that space, pull the loop up and ch 1. *Dc in the next st, remove the hook from the loop, insert it throught the next space along and ch 1. Rep from * until you’ve joined most of the round.
Insert your bauble. Continue joining with the first half until you’ve joined for the last time in the last space remaining. Fasten off.
Hide the last tail with a hook by pulling it inside the bauble or weave it in.
