Today I’m sharing a super quick and simple free crochet christmas ornament pattern that is so fun to make. Seriously, you can make this ornament start to finish in about 10 minutes. Beginners can absolutely make this project too. The Snowy Pines Christmas Tree Ornament uses a small amount of Fable Fur to create a snowy cap for a pinecone (mine of course had to be sparkly) to recreate the look of pinecones just after a fresh snowfall. I hate snow in real life but I just love these! Cue the Hallmark movie music guys because these ornaments totally make this winter grinch nostalgic for a big and fluffy, white Christmas.

Check out my tips and tricks for using faux fur yarns in the video below (or find the write up HERE) so you can hit the ground running. If you’re looking to give faux fur yarns a try, I recommend using Fable Fur from WeCrochet (found HERE). It’s my favourite faux fur yarn as it has a thick strap on the back of the yarn which helps you feel the stitches, even if you can’t see them. If this is your first time using faux fur yarn, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: the fur hides EVERYTHING. So don’t be nervous about whether you’re not able to see your stitches or if your seaming techniques are less than perfect. No one will be able to tell. Be sure to check out the part about doing the Magic Circle in this video. It’s a lifesaver!

- Approximately 4” in diameter (instructions provided in pattern to adjust to your size of pinecone)
- 12 sts x 5 rows = 2 inches
- Gauge is not vital to the project but it may affect the amount of yarn needed for the project.
- A 5.5mm crochet hook is recommended for the project but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches, you can adjust your hook until you can more easily feel your stitches to more easily know where to place your stitches. This may however affect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed.
- This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise). Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated. A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
- Place the piece on your pinecone with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking/furrier side of the fur.
Watch the Video Tutorial for my Snowy Pines Free Crochet Christmas Ornament Pattern Here:
Round 1: Using Fable Fur and 5.5mm hook, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC. (6)
Round 2: (SCINC) x 6 (12)
Round 3: (SC, SCINC) x 6 (18)
Round 4: SC, SCINC, (SC 2, SCINC) x 5, SC (24)
Round 5: *SC, CH3, SC in the next ST* repeat 12 times. Join last ST to the first ST with a SL ST. (12 SC, 12 CH 3’s)
FO and weave in ends.
Round 5 of the piece should over-hang the edge of the pinecone slightly. If you find that your piece is too big or too small for your pinecone, add or remove increase rounds until the piece just covers the bottom of the pinecone and then add Round 5 to your piece before finishing off.
Creating the Hanger
Thread the ribbon or piece of yarn onto a tapestry needle. Insert tapestry needle through one of the stitches near the top/center point of the piece and out through the stitch directly opposite the stitch you went into. Tie the ends together in an overhand knot and slide the knot inside to the bottom of the piece.

Assembling Your Ornament
After pre-heating your glue gun, lay your piece with the wrong side down, keeping the fluffiest part of the piece facing down. Add hot glue to the piece you crocheted and press the base of the pinecone against the hot glue, wrapping the edge of the crocheted piece around the edge of the pinecone so it slightly overhangs it. Let cool.
