Christmas Ornament Crochet Patterns

Do you know that feeling of excitement when you pull your Christmas ornaments out every year and remember what you love about each one? Christmas ornaments can be a big part of the homey, cozy Christmas memories that we make year after year with our families and friends. 

And what could be more memorable than making your own Christmas ornaments?

You don’t have to keep all of your ornaments to yourself, though! The easy, crocheted Christmas ornament patterns included in this post are quick to make, so they also make perfect projects for selling or gifting to friends. 

Make some for your local Christmas craft fair, give them out at work, or even consider adding them as a special touch to your purchased gifts.

Favorite Crochet Supplies

Here are some supplies that you will need for your ornaments. 

  • Crochet hooks
  • Yarn
  • Stitch markers
  • Other notions, such as a yarn needle, scissors, safety eyes, or wooden beads. Check your pattern for the specific tools and supplies required. 

Best Yarn for Crochet Ornaments

Christmas ornaments are pretty forgiving when it comes to yarn choice. Because size doesn’t matter too much, you don’t need to worry about your gauge for most patterns. 

Recommended in the patterns below, you will find many types of yarn weights, from fingering to worsted weight. I’ve included a suggested yarn for each pattern, but feel free to switch it out if you would like.
