Crochet Gingerbread Girl Christmas Ornament Free Pattern

Crochet Gingerbread Girl Christmas Ornament Pattern by Crochet For You.

So sweet & so cute!

The 3rd pattern of #XmasOrnamentMiniCAL is a cute little Gingerbread Girl. 😀 It is simple and easy to crochet. When I thought about crocheting gingerbread ornament I decided it would be a great idea to make a Gingerbread girl than gingerbread man. Because I’ve seen lots of beautiful crochet Christmas ornaments of gingerbread man out there and they are so cute, too.

I hope you enjoy this Gingerbread Girl Christmas Ornament and make one or few for your Christmas tree. And don’t forget to make snowman and mittens pattern I shared last weeks.
