Lacy Crocheted Christmas Ornament
This is an idea that can be adjusted to any shape ornament.

Materials:
Size 10 Thread
1.75 mm Hook
Yarn Needle
2.63" Round Glass Ornament

Special Stitches:
dc2tog~Yarn over, insert hook into space specified, yarn over, draw up 1 loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over, insert hook into same space, yarn over, draw up 1 loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over draw through remaining 2 loops.
:::For personal use only, Please:::
Here we go::
Round 1) Make sliding ring, ch2, dc in ring, ch2, (dc2tog in ring, ch2)x7, slip stitch in the top if the first dc, not the beginning chain, pull sliding ring closed
Round 2) Slip stitch into the ch2 space, ch2, dc in same ch2 space, ch2, dc2tog in same ch2 space (dc2tog, ch2 in next ch2 space)x7, slip stitch in the first dc
Round 3) Slip stitch into ch2 space, ch2 dc in same space, ch2, dc2tog in same space (ch1 dc2tog ch2 dc2tog in next ch2 space)x7 ch1, slip stitch in the first dc
Round 4) Slip stitch into ch2 space, ch2 dc in same space, ch2, dc2tog in same space (ch2 dc2tog ch2 dc2tog in next ch2 space)x7 ch2, slip stitch in the first dc
Round 5) Slip stitch into ch2 space, ch2 dc in same space, ch2, dc2tog in same space (ch3 dc2tog ch2 dc2tog in next ch2 space)x7 ch3, slip stitch in the first dc
Rounds 6-9) Slip stitch into ch2 space, ch2 dc in same space, ch2, dc2tog in same space (ch4 dc2tog ch2 dc2tog in next ch2 space)x7 ch4, slip stitch in the first dc
~At this point you would want to weave in the beginning thread tail and fit the ball into place and crochet around it. Pictured here
Round 10) Repeat round 5
Round 11) Repeat round 3 (yes, round 3)
Round 12) Repeat round 2
Round 13) At this point it is going to be super tight, sc in each ch2 space and between each set of dc2tog(the sets that look like Vs) 16sc total.

Finish off and weave in ends.
Note: If it is possible to remove the metal top of the ball, do so before round 13. After weaving in ends replace the top, pushing the teeth of the top into the thread.

If there is any errors please drop me a note.
Good luck!!

Love the pattern!! I think that I'll try these over a balloon and then stiffen it and bust the balloon so that it's just the thread. I'll let you know how that goes if I manage to get them done!!!
