Top 5 Free Christmas Patterns
It’s my favourite time of year! I’m always super excited for Christmas and love the holiday spirit. Christmas for me is about lots of food and great company although gift giving and receiving is an added bonus it shouldn’t feel like a pressure. If however you’d like to give a gift this Christmas why not make it? I’m all about a hand made card or present. I love the extra thought that’s gone into it, that means more to me than what any money can buy.
I always try to make at least one of my presents for the holidays and this year so far I’ve managed four! I know, gold star for me, right?! With that in mind I thought you might like to join in the fun and whip up some of your own so below I have rounded up my five go to pattern designs for crochet Christmas makes.
Sarah-Jayne is my crochet go-to. Her passion to share and educate really resonates with me and it seemed only fitting to share one of her crochet designs first. When I think of crochet gifts I automatically think hats and scarves or jumpers. I know, I know, Granny doesn’t make every yarny gift but this pattern, released earlier this year by Sarah-Jayne is just perfect for anyone. With the pattern being available in 5 sizes, baby through to adult, what’s not to love!
Ashley from A Crafty Concept is definitely a massive inspiration to me with her boho, girl mom designs she is the bobble stitch queen and with an huge array of patterns it was really hard to pick just one but who doesn’t love a stocking full of chocolate for Christmas!
Hev’s Home Crochet
I couldn’t leave one of my own patterns out the mix so why not make the gift of warmth this Christmas with some cosy home decor in the form of my Cosy Cwtch cushion or heat up them toes under Granny’s Woven Throw. You wont be sorry you made it, that’s for sure!
Crystal is my favourite crochet youtuber without a doubt and her crochet knowledge is second to none, perfect for the visual learner. So if you’re thinking of making a garment this Christmas then stop right here. Men, Women and children; Crystal has a design for them all but what I’m really looking forward to making this year is an oversized cardy, just great for those chilly winter evenings.
If you fancy a winter accessory then Wilma’s blog is the place for you. Full of wearable pattern designs Wilma’s blog is my go place for shawls and scarves. I wanted to share the first design of Wilma’s I made and one I have gone back to again and again.
