I love this time of year when I start releasing Christmas and Holiday themed patterns here on the blog! And this post is hot on the heels of my most recent holiday pattern release for the Cozy Snowman!
Over the years, I have made quite a few holiday patterns. They range from full-sized amigurumi to hats to crochet ornaments perfect for gift-giving (or keeping!).
I want to make your life easier this season! Rather than scrolling through pages of patterns from years past (because who even has time for that right now? We’ve got hand-made gifts to make!), I thought a round-up of all my free Christmas and Holiday crochet patterns would be useful!
AND I want to tell you that my annual Black Friday Sale is live NOW! 30% off everything in my shop. I have just *one* sale each year and this is it! So if you have been wanting to stock up on PDFs of my patterns so they are always at your fingertips (and ad-free!) now is the time! Go to the shop here to check it out. The sale ends on December 1st!
So let’s do it! Busy at the moment? Come back to view this list later by using the ‘Pin It’ button below.
Free Christmas and Holiday Crochet Patterns
Here they are; 15 of my most loved Christmas and Holiday crochet patterns, all for free!
At the top of the list we have a seasonal favourite! This sweet deer wearing a cozy holiday sweater has been one of my post popular patterns year after year. Don't let the colour-work intimidate you; it's easier than you think!
This cutie is the counterpart to number 1 above! His colours are slightly darker (and we can't forget that red nose!). He's sporting a different holiday sweater, but trust me, it's just as cozy as the first.
A sweet little snowman ornament wearing earmuffs and a scarf. This little one is very customizable.
This little ornament has so, so many customization options as well. With two different designs, the options are truly endless in terms of colours, design, face options (or none!), yarn options, etc. These could also be used as a sweet gift card holder! It's hard to tell from the photo, but the pink mittens have a fair-isle pattern worked into them (I'll be honest, I regret not going with a darker colour).
This ornament is still one of my favourites! I have made quite a few versions. The one pictured has stitched on lights using embroidery thread, but I also made a neutral tree with sparkly gold bells, and a vibrant green one with fluorescent beads! A really fun and cute make.
Ah, our favourite abominable snowmonster, Bumble! An absolute favourite of mine (and a great companion ami to the Holiday Deer patterns above at numbers 1 and 2, since they kind of resemble Rudolph and Clara. You can make a whole set!)
A quick and cute reindeer pattern, which is an adaption of my avocado pattern!
This may seem like an unlikely claim, but this Santa Hat is one of my most favourite Christmas makes of all time. Seriously. I made it on a whim on Christmas Eve and released the pattern on Christmas Day (!!) a couple of years back.
I've worn it every year without fail since and I always get so many compliments on it. The super wide brim and rich cranberry colour give it such a luxurious look and feel. I can't wait to break this baby out again this year.
Another hat! Not my usual jam, but I love how this turned out by holding red and white yarn double strand to give the hat this marled look.
I love these little candy canes in non-traditional holiday colours. Very customizable for any decor!
I loved the look of the stitched-on lights (using embroidery thread) the first time for my Miniature Tree Ornament, that I decided to do it again with this cute holiday cactus!
I'm not even going to try to suggest all the ways you could incorporate this holly pattern into your holiday decorating because there are too many. Okay, fine. Just a couple. Accessory for wrapped gifts (that can then be used as an ornament by the recipient)? Embellishments on a wreath? Embellishments on a throw pillow?! Substitute for mistletoe?
This fella is the only "traditional" amigurumi on the whole list. Jack is made in the round, using wires that have been crocheted into the limbs to keep his shape. I made this guy as a commission project and had a blast doing it.
Or tea! Or coffee! Or heck, make a mug of eggnog. Why not? This little ornament doesn't care what she's full of, she just wants to warm you up.
Last but not least is our favourite baddie-turned-softie ready to light up your Christmas! (Or steal your Christmas lights...one or the other).
Most of the above patterns are also available in my shop as ad-free PDFs (including lots more that are not Christmas-themed but would make amazing gifts).
