Time to bring all our Free Christmas Crochet Patterns together in one place for easy browsing and inspiration! The majority of patterns here are crochet Christmas Ornaments. But we do also have a great Crochet Toy Pattern collection that would make great Christmas gifts! This is your incentive to Teach Yourself To Crochet!!
This crochet patterns are all free – or part of them are free and they DO link to “sets of patterns” on Etsy. So if you want to create more or “thank” the crocheter who has shared these with us.. do head over and purchase some of their patterns too! They would be really chuffed.
Can’t crochet? Teach yourself to crochet with this practical learning guide!
Time to grab your crochet hooks, some yarn in different colors and get making! Woohoo! Most of these patterns are based on single crochet and double crochet, so are great for beginners too. They often use worsted weight yarn and of course you can play around with the color options too! A great way to customise your DIY Christmas Crochet to suit your decor or the friend you are gifting too!
Crochet Stitches and Abbreviations
The majority of these projects use U.S. terminology. You can find a full U.S. / UK terminology conversion list in our Beginner’s Guide to Crochet. It is packed full of handy video tutorials to help you learn the different stitches, including things like a magic ring etc. Be sure to check it out and let it help you with your crochet skills journey!
Free Christmas Crochet Patterns
As mentioned, these are all FREE Crochet Patterns, but a few of these are part of “sets” – so for example the super duper cute mini stocking pattern is FREE.. but if you want to make the little amigurumi crochet animals to go with them, they need to be purchased on Esty. However, they are not expensive patterns and you are REALLY helping a creator out by giving them a small commission and supporting their own going work by doing so. So hopefully this is a win win for all!
Whether you are just interested in making the mini stockings advent calendar or want to combine these crochet stockings with these adorable critters.. you simply have to hop over and check the stocking pattern out today! Such a cute stocking pattern!! Why not add some snowflake embroidery or use beads as additional christmas décor?
Similarly, how sweet is this Crochet Mitten Garland? It would make a lovely advent calendar filled with chocolate coins or little notes too! Or make the mittens in pairs, connect and hang in the Christmas Tree as cute mitten ornaments! So fun!
Have a go at these adorable little Amigurumi Penguins! They work really well as “stand alone” penguins, or you could make them as little Christmas ornaments!
We are lucky enough to be able to share this ADORABLE Snowman Crochet Ornament Pattern!! The Snowman is part of a Santa & Friends set, also available to download and keep (I do love those Santa beards, so fun)! These are simply the cutest ornaments to make.
Another lovely Snowman Crochet pattern via Barnardo’s! Isn’t he cute? I think both these guys (wether you are a knitter or crocheter) make great beginner projects! Now you have two crochet snowman pattern DIYs to choose from!
If you don’t have time for the FULL Snowman Ornament, how about this quick and easy Snowman Bauble? So cute!
How about some cute little gnomes in traditional Christmas Colors?! I adore that crochet beard.. and who can resist that CUTE Gnome Nose! Pop over today and have a go at this lovely Nordic Gnome. The pattern size is approximately 20 cm including hats! You can have lots of fun with this free Christmas Pattern and make lots of gnomes in lots of different colors! What a great Christmas decoration to make.
We love Mickey Mouse and love all things Disney inspired. So for us, Mickey Mouse is always a great choice when crafting. Here is a number of different sets of Mickey Crochet Ornament Patterns. The Santa Mickey Mouse Ornament is free here on Red Ted Art!
Or try this second version of the Santa Mickey Mouse Crochet Ornament! More fun with Santa Beards!! Love.
Want to make an adorable Gingerbread Man Plushie or soft toy? How about this Gingerbread Man Crochet Pattern! A great toy to make and give, or use it as an adorable corchet decoration to place on the mantel piece!
Another awesome pattern for you – how CUTE are these woodland animals? I am not sure which is my favourite.. but why not start with the free Fox Ornament Pattern? Just delightful! This is part of a pattern set. The FOX is a free crochet Christmas pattern, but you do need to purchase the remaining friends, if you wish to make them. But remember – you are supporting an independent creator and their small business when you do. Win win!
How about a nautical look when making Christmas minis crochet patterns? Oh we love things that are a bit different. If your “thing” is any coastal inspired, you will adore this beach wood and Coastal Crochet Christmas tree. We have the adorable Life Buoy Pattern for you here (and links to the others too).
Similarly, another great beginner project, is to make these super simple Crochet Snowflake Patterns – a great for beginners by attic 24! I made these as part of getting “into” my crocheting when I taught myself to crochet a few years back. I found these were super instructions to get me started!
Maggie’s Crochet has this super cute “larger” Free Christmas Stocking Crochet pattern. Isn’t it cute? Love the little crochet Christmas Tree detail. Would look great in evergreen too!
Do come back in future, as I am looking to add some adorable little gnomes with color options, maybe a plaid santa or plaid Christmas stocking pattern in the coming weeks.
