This ornament is my absolute favorite to make. It is often the "teacher gift" I give to my sons' teachers right before Christmas break. If you're familiar with this pattern already, you'll notice I made some significant changes to make it more unique. This ornament is very easy to make. The full ornament takes me about 3 hours to complete.

This ornament is double-sided. That means you will complete each side and then connect them together while also crocheting them onto the hoop.
