Materials:

Sizing:
  • 3 inches across
  • 3 inches tall
Instructions for Medallion (Make 2):

Note: Each round is crocheted in a different color. When working with multi-colored projects, it is helpful to weave the ends as you go.

Ch 4, join with a sl st in the furthest ch from hook to form ring.

Round 1 (red yarn): ch 3, then work 2 dc, then a sl st into the center of the ring. Work *(3 dc, sl st) five times for a total of 6 petals. Join with a sl st to close round.

Round 2 (gold yarn): Tie on new color onto the back loops at the top of one of the petals. Insert your hook (same place at the top of petal) as if to work a back post stitch and ch 3 (working it this way will make the chain look more consistent with the other stitches). Ch 1, then in the next space (in between petals) work a tr into the center of the ring. Ch 1, then work a bpdc into the center most dc of the next petal. Continue in this manner around the circle, working a tr, ch 1 into the center of the ring (in between petals), then a bpdc, ch 1 in center dc of each petal. Join to close round with a sl st.

Round 3 (green yarn): Tie on a new color into any space and ch 2.  *Work a fpdc into the first stitch, then work a hdc into the next space, then ch 1.  Repeat from * to end of round.  Join with a slip stitch to close the round.

Round 4 (silver yarn) Tie on a new color into any space and ch 2.  *Work a fpdc into the first stitch (fpdc from previous round), then work a hdc into the next space, skip the hdc from the previous round the a hdc into the next space.  Repeat from * to end of round.  Join with a slip stitch to close the round.

Sandwich both medallions so that the front of each motif is facing out on both sides.  Using same color from round 1, single crochet seam around the edge, leaving a one inch opening.  Stuff with filling of your choice, plus all of the yarn ends, then continue to single crochet seam until the ornament is completely closed.  Weave in any ends that remain.
