Holiday Knitting Ideas

Hard to believe that the holidays will be coming up so very soon! Do you have an annual crafting tradition around the holidays? Do you knit or crochet decorations, or just dream of doing it one day? No matter your level, we have a round up just for our newsletter subscribers for our top free knitting and crochet patterns for holiday decorations!


Knitted Ornaments

Clockwise from Top Right: These little bear ornaments (free pattern) are highly adaptable into other animals- it's worth clicking through the projects to see how cute they look as bunnies and cats, too! This button-eyed penguin is a cutie, and would love to hang out on your tree.  And if you need to get your knitting love representing on your tree, this little knitting basket is the perfect way to do just that. 

A pattern with an adorable Inuk and seal pup? Such a cute pair! They would look right at home next to the adorable snowman ornament, too. The more traditional Christmas Ball pattern has a lot of room to experiment with stripes and stranded designs- because it's fun to stretch your skills while making a beautiful ornament. 


 

Stockings

Clockwise from top right: Spindleknitter’s Stockings (free pattern) are a colourful option with lots of choose-your-adventure style charts to mix and match, and are perfect for stashbusting. For those who like their Christmas with a side of minimalism, these simple striped stockings (free pattern) are just right. Then we have the Falling Snow Stocking (free pattern), classic with snowflake fair isle motifs. Last is the Arlo Stocking (free pattern), personalized and simple with just a bit of stranded work around the cuff.

 

Crocheted Ornaments

Feel like getting the hook out instead of the needles? These cute crocheted decorations come together in no time. Clockwise from top right: Snowflake Wishes can get you dreaming of a pretty snowfall in no time, and if you make enough of them, they would be a beautiful garland, too. These pretty crocheted Christmas light decorations are a great garland or can be made individually for a tree ornament. How cute are these tiny snowmen? They don't take much yarn at all, and are perfect on a tree or decorating just about any table top- they would be a charming gift topper, too! Last, perfect for scrapbusting these crocheted Christmas baubles are a real delight, and the colours can coordinate with any kind of decor scheme you have in mind.
