My mother taught me to make a chain stitch when I was in elementary school. I was hooked. Now, I enjoy making knit and crochet patterns that I love for others to learn these wonderful arts.

Pattern Description:

Enjoy making this virgin Mary ornament to hang on a wall, as home decor, a tree or wreath or as a teaching tool for young children. Mary was an excellent example of how God can use each of us if we are willing.

I have grandchildren and I wanted to design a nativity set to help teach them the reason for the Christmas season. I also thought a decoration would be nice, that they could handle and not worry about breaking. So I made baby Jesus and this virgin Mary ornament.

She would look wonderful on a wall display for people who are out of shelf space.

This pattern is made using U.S. crochet abbreviations and would be good for an intermediate crocheter.

She has a gathered looking royal blue dress which is trimmed in golden yellow. Her gathered looking white headress is also trimmed in golden yellow. She has a gold halo on top of her headress.

This is a fun ornament to make.
