I made some crochet baubles last year and gave them as a gift very successfully so I thought I would do some more again this year. They are small, I can make one in half and hour and they are great to put in the post to far away friends.
These ones are made of sock yarn. Christina from Colourful Life sent me some sock yarn leftovers for my Autumn wander shawl but there was also some yarn in the parcel with a little sparkle. The baubles are cheap plastic ones but the yarn does all the talking.
The pattern is free from Ravelry here. Easy to do and just a bit more interesting than granny treble ones or plain double crochet.
Essentially they are a bauble cosy! You make two halves and join them together around a bauble with a whip stitch.
Might do a few more. Are you still making?
