It’s that time of year again, the non-stop crochet-a-thon until Christmas! Will it be done on time? Will it be crocheted in the car on the way to Christmas dinner? Only time will tell…

Here are some great Christmas crochet patterns if you like to play “crochet chicken” during the holidays.

  1. Christmas Tree Tree Ornaments


A fast way to start things off. These cute Christmas tree ornaments can be whipped up and make great gifts.


2. Holiday Potholders


This pattern is for two great potholders. A snowflake and a deer pattern. Get creative with colours to match your kitchen! This pattern has charts so that is a skill required but can be learned easily. This would be a good project to learn charts for as it is small and fairly simple.

3. Simple Crochet Headbands


These are nice simple crochet headbands that work up quickly. Super cute for last minute gifts for friends! The pattern is free and can be done in countless colours.

4. Plaid Deer Pillow


This is a step up from the previous items. Takes more time and skill but oh will it pay off! This beautiful pillow is a free pattern and while it is quite long don’t be deterred. One row at a time I like to say, don’t get overwhelmed by trying to take in the whole pattern at once. One line at a time and it will come together!

5. C2C Grinch Scarf


If you love C2C you’re going to dig this Grinch scarf. There is not only a pattern but great step by step youtube videos to show you how to make this.


Well there you have it, 5 great Christmas crochet patterns to keep you busy in the weeks leading up to the holidays! Enjoy!
