Since these projects can require extra time and care, you might want to start working on a few now. The Christmas season shouldn’t involve any stress, so the sooner you start on your crafts, the better.

Christmas Crochet Patterns:
Snowflake Hostess Apron – If you spend time in the kitchen during the holiday season, you know how important it is to have a quality apron to protect your clothes. This year, step it up and create your own crochet apron with Christmas motifs. You can also make an apron and give it to your favorite Christmas cook. This intermediate pattern makes a huge impression and adds a festive touch to an otherwise mundane holiday activity.
Holiday Balls Throw – When you’re finished opening gifts and your Christmas meal is complete, there’s nothing quite like curling up with a blanket and catching up with loved ones. Make the day even more special by crocheting an afghan just for this occasion. This green and red crochet pattern is ideal for intermediate crocheters. Best of all, you can take this afghan out all year and get in the Christmas spirit.
Christmas Knitting Patterns:
Polar Bear Hat – Plain hats are so last season. This casual winter cap is perfect for kids and adventurous adults. You can wear this knit hat all season long – it’s super warm and toasty. Most importantly, it’s easy enough for beginning knitters. Make one for your favorite kid and watch their face light up on Christmas morning.
Little Knit Stockings – Why make one large stocking when you can decorate your tree with mini ones? This is an easy project for someone who is new to knitting. The pops of color and fun designs make each stocking stand out.
