Pattern Description:

These delightful little ornaments work out to just about 2 inches long, the same size as the old fashioned "C7" style Christmas lightbulbs, with which my husband's family traditionally decorated their tree. Any colors of your choice may be used, Best of all, these 'lights' never burn out!

This pattern was designed after being inspired by seeing a similar ornament made of worsted weight yarn. The proportions in the yarn pattern just did not translate well to thread crochet, so I wrote my own!

Pattern includes a couple ideas on how to turn the individual ornaments into a garland if you wish.
