Crochet Peppermint Sticks

 
This year Jacob's teacher asked the kids to make some Christmas ornaments and cards to decorate their tree and classroom, so while Jacob was working on his card I found this heavenly easy pattern for these peppermint swirly sticks to be used as ornaments.
 
 


 

I used sport yarn and 1.9mm hook.

The pattern for the red and white stick

Chain 40
Row 1: sc 2 in every stitch across
Row 2: sc 1 across
Row 3 (in white): hdc 1 across

It is sturdier and bigger than the three-colored stick, so I made a variation of the pattern.

The pattern for the three-colored stick

Chain the foundation in red (40)
Row 1 (green) sc 2 in every stitch across
Row 2 (white) hdc 1 across

When done, roll tightly and spray with starch or insert a wire inside it to shape the stick.




And last but not least, here's my Jacob with his Christmas card. Entirely his idea how it should look.
