I love the change in the air and how the season brings out the very best in everyone. Christmas is truly the season of giving and gratitude. From the chilly air, all of the markets, handmade gifts, to holiday decorations, this season is a the best time to show off our maker talents.

What to do with these Christmas Amigurumi and Crochet Patterns:

  1. Prepare for holiday markets. These are great beginner projects to make and sell finished items during holiday markets. Markets and craft fairs are great places to earn money from your crafts because they naturally attract your target customers who are ready to buy. Lots of people like to support local and handmade during the holiday season so make sure to stock up. You can find my advice to creating a handmade production line and download my vendor checklist here.
  2. Family Heirlooms – handmade (especially crochet) is generally known to become family heirlooms that are cherished down generations. Making some of these free christmas patterns becomes a great addition to holiday heirlooms that will last for generations.
  3. Fun holiday decor – Christmas preparations are so much fun. Ii absolutely love decorating for Christmas but it is sooooo hard to wait for an appropriate time and not decorate too earlier. Making a free christmas crochet pattern usually keeps me occupied and avoid fishing out the Christmas tree too early.
  4. Great gifts – I am a firm believer that handmade is the best gift you could give like I mentioned in my post Best Gifts to Crochet. Add a little holiday spirit in your gift baskets this year with something from this free christmas amigurumi crochet patterns.

Christmas Amigurumi and Crochet Patterns

Some of these patterns requires you to change colors. See my post about how to seamlessly change colors in crochet to get that flawless transition.

Cozy Crochet Tree Skirt

The first thing people see in your home during the holidays is the Christmas tree. Christmas trees should be the center of attraction and decorations should be ON POINT. Starting with the very bottom, the tree skirt.

This is a faux fur Christmas tree skirt that I whipped up last year after YEARS of failing to find the perfect skirt. The skirt whips up really quickly and is such an elegant touch to your home and will surely catch everyone’s attention.

Crochet Santa Hat

What’s Christmas without a Santa hat? The best thing about Santa hats is that they are beginner friendly crochet projects that the whole family can enjoy for family photos and outfits for Christmas Day.

It is fairly easy to get the perfect size for crochet Santa hats and are really easy to modify to make it as long as you want. I made one that was extra long! Santa hats can be made in lots of different colors, so if you are attending or hosting a color themed Christmas party (like we do every year), these would be a great addition to the festive season.

Repeat Crafter Me has a free EASY Crochet Santa hat Pattern on her site that you can try as a base. Another cool idea that is trending this year is to make a plaid Santa hat.

Christmas Crochet Ornaments

Is it really Christmas without a tree? I always dreamed of having a charming cottage with a Christmas tree in every room. Right now, we have one big Christmas tree for our living room and filling it with Christmas tree ornaments we pick up as souvenirs from each place we travel. To fill in places, some of the ornaments on our tree are actually handmade.

Crochet Christmas ornaments are really popular and also great heirloom gifts to gift to extended family. I always imagined giving a box of crocheted ornaments away to friends and family but never actually got around to doing it.
