A classic craft project for camp, these Ojo de Dios or God's Eyes are a great way to use up left-over yarn.

Lion Brand® Cupcake® - Microspun - Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton - Fun Fur® - Wool-Ease® Chunky

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

DECORATIONS
Glue 2 sticks together at centers to form a cross shape.

To make ornament, you will wrap yarn around center of cross, then over and around one ‘arm’ of cross, turn piece clockwise and continue wrapping around remaining arms. As you wrap the yarn, be sure wraps are close to, but not on top of, previous wraps. To change colors, cut old color. Tie end of old and new color yarns together and continue wrapping.

Ornament shown has 4-6 wraps each in the following sequence: A, B, D, E, F and C.

Gods' Eye Reviewed by Brianna McComb on 2010-03-19 *****
I love these things! I find them especially fun to make with three tooth-picks, and crochet cotton. They are so cute, even more so that way! They make great Christmas gifts, ornaments, and decorations. I have one hanging in my bedroom, and it is so small and cute. They are great beginner projects. I would highly recommend them. =)
