To make these crochet Christmas decorations, you will need to have a variety of crochet tools on hand. The most common tools for making amigurumi ornaments as well as flat crochet ornaments are listed below.
Yarn: The weight of yarn needed for each of these ornaments will vary, but the most commonly used worsted weight yarn. I’ve listed a few of my favorites yarns for making crochet ornaments below.
Crochet Hook: Each of the ornament patterns will have the crochet hook size listed that it requires. You will find that some ornaments will ask to use two sizes of crochet hooks for different parts of the ornament.
Other Notions: You may need some other supplies as well when making ornaments such as a yarn needle (aka tapestry needle), yarn scissors, safety eyes, stitch markers and measuring tape.
