I found this cute little pattern while browsing google for something else. They are SO easy - less than 10 minutes from start to finish!
All credit goes to Suzie ... http://suzies-yarnie-stuff.blogspot.com.au/2008/12/my-paperclip-ice-skate-ornament-c.htmlMATERIALS:
Approximately 5 yards of worsted weight yarn
Approximately 1 ½ yards of fuzzy white yarn
G crochet hook
Two jumbo paper clips
With the continuous wire of paper clip on bottom for blade and the larger loop to the right, attach yarn to paper clip with a slipstitch into the larger loop.
Always crochet over the beginning tails.
Row 1: Ch 2, 7 dc to end of paper clip (work first dc in the larger loop, work remain dc in smaller loop and around both wires). This row forms the foot of the skate.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, Dc in 4 sts. This row forms the ankle of the skate.
Row 3: Ch 1 turn, sc in 4 sts. After last st, Ch 10, fasten off. On the second skate, only chain 8, so that the skates are offset after tying together.
Row 4: Join fuzzy white yarn with a sc in turning chain of row 3. Sc in 3 sts, 2 sc in last st.
Fasten off and weave in ends. If you crocheted over the tails you will only have the ending tail of the trim to weave in.
Repeat for the second skate and tie the two skates together with the tails of the ch 10 and ch 8.
