Old Glory Bauble

Here’s a patriotic little Bauble to share with your favorite person on Independence Day. Or maybe you’ll opt to make a bunch of them to hang on a garland or tree to make things a bit more festive on Flag Day.

The ornament is knit top down, starting with a rolled turtleneck collar. You’ll start with stripes of red and white, add in the blue and knit just 2 rounds of stranded colorwork for the whole ornament. I carried the unused colors along the back and did not cut them. If you make sure the tension is not too tight or too loose, nobody will know!

The bauble cover is designed to fit a 2.63” / 67 mm plastic ornament. For the last few rounds, you will be creating your stitches with the plastic bauble nestled inside the knitted fabric. For your safety, please do not use a glass ornament to create this project!
