Free Crochet Christmas Ornament Patterns That You Will Love!
The holidays are upon us and it’s time to crochet Christmas ornaments to decorate those Christmas trees!
I love the tradition of decorating a tree for the holidays. It just adds an element of festivity to the house and it’s so much fun to keep adding to your collection of ornaments. They really tell a story, don’t they? As crocheters, the Christmas Tree tradition is even more exciting because it gives us yet another excuse to crochet! Plus, how special is it to have an ornament that you’ve made with your own hands and a lot of love to adorn your tree? It gives it that handmade touch that really makes it stand out.
Plus, you can gift crocheted ornaments to friends and family, to add a little bit of you to their holiday tree! They also make great smaller items to sell at Christmas craft fairs (be sure to check out our craft fair tips!)
So, to help you add that handmade touch this holiday season, we have put together a collection of awesome crochet Christmas ornaments from some of our most favourite crochet designers for your Christmas tree this year!

Frequently Asked Questions About Crochet Christmas Ornaments
What is the best yarn for crochet Christmas ornaments?
You can use any yarn to crochet your Christmas ornaments, depending on the pattern that you use! If you would like your ornaments to be similar size to that in the pattern, you should follow the yarn noted in the pattern. If you decide to go with a thicker yarn than the pattern suggests, just note that your ornaments will be larger than the pattern indicates. Similarly, if you use a thinner yarn to crochet your ornaments than the pattern suggests, your finished product may be smaller than the pattern suggests.
How do you crochet easy Christmas ornaments?
What Christmas ornaments feel easy for you will depend on what you’re experienced in doing. If you are someone who crochets amigurumi, perhaps a simple bauble like the one by the Burgundy Basket may be the easiest ornament for you to crochet. However, if you are someone who prefers crocheting two-dimensional projects, you may prefer something flat like the rustic tree ornament by Regina P Designs. It really all depends on your skill level. But you will never know what you can do until you try!
