A basic round Christmas bauble is decorated in four ways - snowman, Santa, holly and pudding.
The bauble is worked on two needles (not knitted circular) so there is one seam to sew after the bauble has been stuffed.
Snowman and Santa - have knitted arms and hats, Santa has a garter stitch beard, and snowman has a garter stitch scarf. All these are sewn onto the stuffed bauble.
Holly has sewn on leaves and berries.

holly and pudding - 6cm (2 1/2in) high
