It’s easy to be full of good intentions for Christmas crochet. You start out with a huge pile of yarn, a gift list full of lovingly planned homemade presents, a second list full of festive makes to deck your halls and then somewhere between the food shopping, putting the tree up and watching festive movies it all gets jingled up. Before you know it, half of December has passed and you’re deeper into the Christmas chocolates than your crochet lists. Well, don’t worry. I have a list packed FULL of quick, simple and festive crochet Christmas pattern ideas that will have you enjoying the most wonderful time of the year again.

Ready to sleigh your Christmas woes?

My Crochet Snowflake is a brilliant way to add some seasonal spICE to your Christmas tree. This quick little project can be made in under an hour and looks beautiful in any yarn. Whether you choose traditional white, or something to match your tree décor this sparkling snowflake will become a fast, festive favourite.

Speaking of QUICK. It’s possible to whip up my Mini Christmas Wreath in just under 10 minutes. So why not stick on a Christmas movie, arm yourself with red and green yarn and crochet away a whole bunch to give as super speedy, but sweet Christmas crochet gifts.

You could also pair the wreath with my Mini Stocking and make a fun festive garland that can be ready in just a couple of hours. Or just hook up some Mini Stockings, stuff them with a few chocolates and ta-dah…instant gift.

If you’re all giddy about garlands then you’ll love this beautiful crochet Christmas Light string from Wink.

There’s something so nostalgic about these lovely lights. They may not actually light up, but there’s no denying they’re luminous!

If you fancy your garlands more nature-themed – then how about this elegant Mistletoe Garland from Loop London. I love the subtle colour differences and those gorgeous leaves.

What’s Christmas without baubles? Look how delicate these beautiful baubles from the lovely Caitie at Thoresby Cottage are – that gold thread is just *chef kiss*.

The big crochet baubles are brilliant for adding a personal touch to your tree, while the small baubles make lovely additions to parcels.

This next crochet Christmas pattern can take as little as 30 MINUTES. So ideal for when you have a spare evening. They make fabulously fun gifts too! Yarnhild’s little Christmas Tree ornament ups the cute factor by giving her tree a little face. Too cute.

We all know gingerbread houses are traditional Christmas food, but how about a cute crochet version that lasts forever and doesn’t create any crumbs? Sewrella’s sweet little Christmas Crochet Gingerbread House is definitely too good to eat. Really, don’t try it. Yarn is great to squish, less good to eat.

What’s more festive than a Christmas star? These beautiful, simple Crochet Stars from Alexia at PersiaLou are a wonderful Christmas crochet pattern for beginner crocheters and hook up in next to no time.

Lastly – you might not have the time to make a traditional wreath, but how about this fun Candy Cane Wreath from Erica at Highland Hickory Designs?
