Christmas Pudding Cover

I have used this Christmas Pudding Cover pattern for both chocolate oranges and bath bombs. 



You will need:
  • Yarn needle 
  • 3.5mm crochet hook
  • Button
  • DK Yarn
    • Approx. 5m
Stitches and abbreviations used:
(I am from England but use US crochet terms)
  • MC - Magic circle/ring
  • Ch - Chain 
  • SC - Single crochet 
  • HDC – Half Double Crochet
  • DC – Double Crochet
  • ST - Stitch                              
  • SLST - Slip stitch 
  • R – Round or Row
  • FO - Finish Off
  • Long SC – sc going into the st on the round below the one you are working on.
Other things to note....
  • This is worked in continuous rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track.
  • The number in ( ) at the end of each round indicates the total stitch count for that round.
  • *  * indicates repeated series of stitches.
  • Stitches in [ ]  are worked into one stitch.
