Christmas is getting closer and closer, and I know I’m on the hunt for great projects to make for my family and friends. Since I love to crochet, I thought I would share some easy Christmas crochet patterns that are quick and fun to make. Most of these patterns use only 1-3 balls of yarn, so they’re economically friendly and great for beginners. From afghans to gift card holders, these Christmas crochet patterns are perfect to have on hand for those blistery fall evenings!
Do you have visions of candy canes dancing in your head? This Crocheted Candy Cane Wreath is a fun and easy project that anyone could make. Display this whimsical wreath indoors or out. This “sweet” pattern is great for amigurumi fans and would be a great project for a beginner crocheter who’s looking for a bit of a challenge. You could even add a simple “Merry Christmas” sign to this wreath to make it more festive.
Top off your Christmas tree with this adorable Crochet Angel Tree Topper. This elegant and traditional Christmas crochet pattern also makes a great gift for a family member or friend. Even if you have a tree topper already, you could make this angel as a centerpiece for your table or mantel.
Afghans and throws are perfect for adding a touch of color and decor to your living room or bedroom. They’re also great projects for beginning crocheters and they make great gifts for any occasion. This Christmas Striped Throw, for example, is the perfect accessory for your living room. Beaming with the colors of the season, this crocheted afghan pattern also makes a great gift for a white elephant gift exchange. You could even use this pattern to create an every day afghan! Mix and match your favorite yarn colors to create an afghan that goes perfectly with your living room or bedroom.

These cute gift card holders are also great for giving jewelry, cash, accessories, snacks, and so much more! Make a whole bunch so you always have one or two on hand when you need them.
One of the things I look for in my Christmas crochet patterns is versatility. I want a pattern that I can use throughout the winter, year after year.
