25+ Free Christmas Crochet Patterns For Beginners

Christmas is the Greatest Time of The Year, or so says the song. It’s the time for peace and love, for bright colors, presents and fancy decorations. In short, it is the time to be merry.

The Fall and Winter months which lead up to Christmas are also a fantastic opportunity to take up crocheting. You may do it because you’re bored at home, or maybe so you can create truly affordable and unique gifts. In fact, if you get good fast, you could even go ahead and knit some “ugly Christmas sweaters” just in time for the season.

You may not be accomplished at crochet or knitting yet though, and we totally understand it if you need to ease yourself into the art of crocheting. That is in fact why we put this article together. Feel free to get some inspiration from these free Christmas crochet patterns for beginners.
