Review Notes: After seeing Linda’s gorgeous Berry Christmas Doily and then this Berry Christmas ornament – I just add to try it! It took me just under 30 minutes to complete it – I used light weight yarn (cotton) No 3 and a 3, 25 mm hook. My ornament is approx 4, 5 inches in diameter. I think if using thread yard they will be much more suitable for tree hanging ornaments 🙂 Otherwise they will be gorgeous matching table decor for the doily! Use as coasters!
