Ice Skate Ornament

Oh how I love these little retro ice skate ornaments. I based this pattern on an ornament from my childhood that my Grammy must have made.  They’re perfect for child-friendly tree decorating and make a lovely present topper!

Yarn in colors of your choice
Jumbo paper clips
Crochet hook (I used an H hook)
Tapestry needle


1. Double crochet 8 stitches onto the paper clip. Chain 2, turn.

2. Double crochet 8 stitches. Chain 2, turn.

3. Double crochet 5 stitches, Chain 2, turn.

4. Double crochet 5 stitches, fasten off BUT do not cut yarn. Leave attached.

5. With second color, at the opposite end of the row from where you just fastened off, single crochet 5 stitches.

6. Using both color strands, chain 15 stitches. Fasten off, leaving a 6-12″ tail to tie the skates together.

7. Make a second skate. Tie the two strands together in a bow. Tie in all ends. And there you have it! An adorable ice skate pair to dangle from the tree.
