A Delightful Collection of Valentine Gifts to Make

If you find yourself cooped up in your house again this winter avoiding the plague or extremely cold temperatures, perhaps it would warm your heart to think about making your loved ones a Valentine’s Day gift. We all know it’s a made up holiday that has been commercialized to sell more stuff, but you can also use it as an opportunity to tell the ones you love how you feel about them. What better way than thinking about them while you make them something handmade? Check out these great patterns and kits for some great handmade Valentine’s Day gifts!

I couldn’t resist this adorable little Hedgehog with a Heart Crochet Pattern from My Crochet Wonders, so I snapped it up shortly after it was released! Little amigurumi patterns like this are delightful because they’re so quick and rewarding to make up! You can sit down a couple of times in a weekend and have an adorable little stuffy. I was still in winter holiday mode when I saw this and I thought since it’s so ball-like, you could hang a little string from it and have a super sweet little tree ornament!

This Fleece Teddy & Bunny Crochet Pattern from All About Ami would be such a thoughtful gift for a little one that you love. It is made with Lionbrand Go for Fleece Yarn, which works up quickly and fills in all the little “holes” of crochet and is super fuzzy and cuddly. I think I have at least one kid who would still enjoy one of these delightful little stuffed animals!

It’s not always easy for knitters to find cute stuffed animal patterns, but this collection of 6 Teddy Bear Variations from Mary Jane’s Tea Room has a variety of options for you to make six different teddy bears. Sweet little skirts and bows for the hair and adorable little shorts and shoes options allow you to customize a cuddly knitted bear stuffy for someone you love. This would make such a beautiful heirloom gift to pass down through generations!

Wondering what knitting needles I use? KnitPicks Interchangeables are my go to needles!

I just love this super cute Crochet Pattern of the Ice Cream Monster Yeti Amigurumi from amiguruku. This sweet little crochet pattern is nearly free (it is listed as free, but the cost is just the cost of listing and selling it on Etsy). I love the big wide closed-mouth smile on this adorable little amigurumi monster. He’s not exactly Valentine’s-themed, but who wants hearts all over everything all year round? This guy is so sweet and fun, you know you want to make one! And it’s such a deal of a pattern!

Stephanie from All About Ami just released her new Chinese New Year Tiger Crochet Pattern. This is another beautiful pattern by Stephanie; her designs are always great and also available for free on her blog. She is definitely a designer worth following!

If you’re getting into making amigurumi, you’ll probably need some safety eyes. Check out these. You’ll probably also need some polyfill. This is what I use.

The Tiger is just the lates in Stephanie’s collection of Chinese New Year Zodiac Amigurumi. You can get the whole adorable pattern bundle here.

This Valentine Gnome Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Happy Dolls Hand Made is certainly Valentine’s-themed, if that’s what you’re going for. The adorable little heart appliques really read Valentine’s, which makes this little guy the perfect Valentine’s themed gift!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

Ok, now switching to an amigurumi that is not Valentine’s themed at all, but is just so unique and full of amazing details, I could not leave out this Crocheted Highland Cow Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Cottontail and Whisker. This pattern is not for beginners, but what a gorgeous result, don’t you think? So much fun! If you’re looking for a unique gift for a unique person, this pattern definitely fits the bill!

While stuffies definitely delight, I just love a functional gift! This Toastie Bread Bag Crochet Pattern from Lil Crochet Bean is such a sweet example of a functional yet so adorable amigurumi! I feel like I need this little bag to just slip my phone and wallet in and throw across my body. Who says that a grown woman can’t carry slightly silly accessories?

I usually post knit and crochet patterns here, but there are so many more crafts out there for you to explore. This Vintage Heart Garland Felt Craft Kit from Art Kulture Store contains soft wool-mix felt, a needle, DMC embroidery thread, toy filling, ribbon and instructions, templates and a stitch guide to make six vintage felt hearts. Everything you need! You could give this kit as a gift to a crafty person you love or you could make it yourself and give the resulting garland as a gift (or keep it for yourself!).

This DIY Macrame 3-Leaf Wall Hanging Kit from Macrame By Fiber Knots would also make a lovely gift for a crafty loved one or for you to make it for them (or for yourself… swoon… gorgeous boho home decor!). If you’ve ever wanted to get into macrame, this is the perfect little starter kit! It contains everything you need to create this cute wall hanging!

Of course, what better way is there to say I love you than with a warm Super Chunky Knit Hat? The Super Chunky Ribbed Colorblock Knit beanie Pattern from Smeeny Beanie Knits. This colorblock beanie is super trendy and super easy for the new knitter.

Looking for super bulky yarn? Lionbrand has some great options for super bulky yarn!

Gifts You Can Make with Crochet

I fully intended to be much more obnoxious about getting on you all to get your handmade gifts made earlier this year, but I fear I have failed you. But it is only November! It’s the beginning of November! If you are determined and you sets your sights realistically, you can make handmade gifts for everyone you truly love. I shared this funny quote in my Instagram stories the other day, so I think you all should see it.

So, yes, if you want to make sweaters for your loved ones, you’d better only have two loved ones (maybe just one depending on the sweater), but if you are happy giving your colleagues something a little more manageable, you do still have time to make some handmade gifts for your loved ones! I’ve collected some great pattern ideas for you to choose from. So grab your yarn, hooks/needles and get making!

How amazing is this Holland Lop Rabbit Knitting Pattern from Dotpebbles Knits? This bunny looks practically real! So sweet and KNIT! It’s not always easy to find knitting patterns that do amigurumi so well: this bunny is quite the feat!

While definitel less realistic, I just love this Crochet Easter Bunny with Cross Stitch Embroidery Pattern from sam Snosami PDF. I love the sweet flowers all over these gorgeous heirloom quality dolls. These will make such a special keepsake, made with love!

Dotpebbles Knits impresses again with this realistic Wild Rabbit Knitting Pattern. How sweet is this little bunny?! Such an amazing pattern! I’ve never actually made a knit stuffed toy before because I usually find crochet amigurumi to be cuter, but this pattern is just so impressive!

See? Crochet amigurumi is soooooo cute?! This adorable little Bonnie the Bunny Crochet Pattern from When Crafting Is Life with those fabric-lined ears just makes me melt with sweetness!

This Toy Bunny Knitting Pattern from Knitted Zoo Gifts demonstrates that there are some adorable cartoonish knitting patterns for amigurumi as well.

Something about this Cuddly Chick Toy Knitting Pattern from Fluff and Fuzz just made me think of the Wonder Pets Show and the little chick that was in that animated series. This sweet little knit chick would be another great Easter basket item!

Many knitters and crochers, including myself, need a little break from the yarn stitching crafts and a quick and easy kit like this one makes the perfect little break and a satisfying project. Don’t be afraid to put down your needles or hooks for a bit to enjoy making something different!

12 Classic Festive Knit and Crochet Stocking Patterns

It’s a great year to make your own stockings! Even if it’s late and you don’t think you’ll get them all done before Christmas, don’t fret! Do what you were going to do anyways and then consider yourself ahead for next year, not behind for this year! That’s what I did a few years ago: after Christmas, I sat down and knitted for 5 days straight to make our family stockings and then they hung around empty for another week before I put all the decorations… but then I was all ready for next year! Handmade stockings are a beautiful way to add homey-ness to your Christmas decor, so I’ve collected a beautiful bundle of knit and crochet stockings that can stretch to fit whatever loot Santa has for your loved ones!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First up: the knits! I often start with crochet, so I thought I would shake things up a big. And one of the things I prefer about knit stockings here is the closeness of the stitches, so things don’t get caught on the holes when Santa is stuffing them full of goodies. This fun cable-knit chunky Magnolia Stocking Knitting Pattern by White Oak Knits is a pattern that is sure to hold your interest and work up quickly since it is knit with super bulky yarn. You just might have enough time before Christmas Eve to make a couple of these for special folks in your life!

I love the vintage vibe of this Holly Stocking Knitting Pattern from Annies Woolens. Such a classic Christmas look for homey ski-lodge-inspired winter decor. If you’ve been wanting to explore colour work, you’ll love this pattern because of the ease working in the round. This pattern also includes an alphabet chart so you can personalize your stockings!

Vintage patterns are often a super good deal and this Vintage Knit Stocking Patterns from CooloRoonie is no exception. At under $2, you can make your own vintage vibe stockings from a genuine vintage pattern!

The Jumbo Knitted Stocking Pattern from Prinku is sure to excite your favourite little one with the dreams of no limits for what can fit in their stocking. This simply stockinette knit jumbo stocking will work up quickly with a super bulky yarn; it’s the perfect mindless pattern for the intermediate knitter, but an eager beginner can handle the easy to follow step by step photos and instructions.

Another fun vintage knit stocking pattern for you! How fun are these Folk Patterned Vintage Christmas Stocking Knitting Patterns from BC Funk Factory? These stockings work up to be about 28 inches long and includes instructions for making both the Scandinavian Motifs, trees, and snowflakes. This is an advanced knitting pattern, so you might want to save this project for the lazy days following Christmas, but you will be so proud of yourself when you’ve finished these stunning vintage stockings!

I love Christmas gnomes! They’re so adorable and still so trendy! Check out this fun Gnome Christmas Stocking Knitting Pattern from Kathleens Keepsakes! If knitting in the round isn’t your thing, you can make this pattern, as it’s knit flat and sewn up afterwards.

One final knitting pattern. This Old Fashioned Christmas Stocking Knitting Pattern from Aunt Janets Designs is a cable-knit, timeless stocking that will suit any Christmas decor. This pattern is a great one to use up your worsted weight stash and it is knit in the round for a quick knit project! I love knitting in the round on circular needles. If you’re looking for your own set of circular needles, I highly recommend a set of interchangeable needles from KnitPicks. These are what I use and I love the versatility of circular needles. I use them for almost every knitting project, even if it is knit flat. It’s just so easy to keep track of one circular needle instead of worrying about losing one needle! (They also have a wide variety of affordable yarn!)

Ok, now on to the crochet patterns! There are plenty of great crochet stocking patterns, like this Crafty Boho Stocking Crochet Pattern from A Crafty Concept. I love the bobbles and the faux fur topper and pompom! So much fuzzy and festive texture!

I’m sure you knew you could make cables with crochet, but if you didn’t have an idea of where you could us it, this Big Bold Cabled Stocking Crochet Pattern from A Crocheted Simplicity is a great pattern to put it into practice. Also I love those pompoms! Maybe I need to make new stockings with pompoms! (I don’t know: I think my kids are getting to be a little attached to the stockings they have, though!)

Or how about this fun Buffalo Plaid Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern also from A Crocheted Simplicity?! Don’t you just love the texture of the lemon peel stitch and the fun buffalo plaid? Such a classic and if you’ve incorporated some plaid into your decor, or if you’re trying to, this is a great way to do it. I love this black and white and grey option because it would be so easy to work into our decor…. Hmmmm… maybe plaid stockings. (So many ideas!)

This darling Winter Braid Stocking Crochet Pattern from Sheepish Stitches has a great horizontal braid pattern worked through it for a lovely subtle texture that is warm and inviting. Another fantastic option!

I love the way this O Christmas Tree Crocheted Stocking Pattern from A Crocheted Simplicity works the textured puffy stitches into a Christmas tree design element for this stocking. This pattern uses easy-to-find worsted weight yarn, so you might be able to pull something great out of your stash!

I hope you found some inspiration for the stockings you’re going to make for your family or another family you care about. It’s so worth it to learn to knit or crochet to make your own stockings because they tend to be quite time-consuming. I think of it as the opportunity to think and pray for my recipient, which is one of the invaluable things about handmade. So, go grab yourself one of these patterns and some yarn and get making. Or pin it for later so you can find it when you’re ready!

Delightful Knit & Crocheted Christmas Amigurumi Patterns

As we become further and further buried under snow here in Edmonton, there is an extreme pull to sit under blankets and cuddle up with a blanket and a project. And there are few things more satisfying to make than Amigurumi stuffed toys! They are relatively quick to make, they often allow you to use up yarn you already have in your stash and it’s just so fun to see the character of them come alive as you work! These darling crocheted little creatures make impressive Christmas gifts for loved ones, delighting little ones and adults alike. Check out this collection of adorable Christmas amigurumi crochet (and a couple of knit!) patterns for you to make this season.

How cute is this Penguin Crochet Pattern from Cute Toys By Tatiana in his winter cap and scarf? The accessories on this adorable little penguin are actually knit, so this is a great opportunity for those of us who can do both of these crafts to show off our skills! There’s no shame in not knitting a scarf, though. I’m sure if you can follow this pattern, you can figure out how to make a crocheted hat that would be suitable for your little penguin!

This Snowman and Red Nosed Fawn Crochet Pattern from BVoe668 reminds me of the 1964 stop motion film Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, which I loved as a kid. The snowman isn’t quite right for the Burle Ives character, but that reindeer is pretty close. Such an adorable little crochet pattern to make for your holiday display. I love having Christmas decorations that the kids can touch and play with instead of everything being fussy and hands-off. This is a great way to invite littles into the cheer of the Christmas season!

What a delightful Cuddle-Sized Christmas Tree Amigurumi Pattern from Storyland Amis! This is the perfect little tree to decorate a child’s bedroom, or to satisfy a particularly tree-loving kid’s desire for a Christmas tree!

How much fun is this sweet Gingerbread Man Amigurumi Pattern from Planet June? These little guys would make the perfect wrapping accessory on a gift or add a hanger and they make a great tree ornament! You could make a whole bunch of them and string them up as an adorable gingerbread man garland! They would also make a super fun holiday addition to a child’s play kitchen! So many fun options for this quick and easy pattern.

Of course, we can’t forget Santa. This Crocheted Santa Amigurumi Pattern from R Nata is cuddle-sized when made with the yarn called for, at 20-22 cm tall. Such a sweet little toy for a little one to enjoy!

I just had to share this super cuddly Santa Crochet Pattern from Crochet Wonders Design! This Santa reminds me of the Santa in the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer holiday special as well, with his modern, stylized moustache and beard. He’s made with velour blanket yarn, so it makes the cuddliest stuffed toy! So soft!

Christmas calls for all kinds of elves and gnomes, so if you want to make yourself an adorable bearded gnome for your Christmas decor, try this Amigurumi Christmas Gnome Crochet Pattern from Happy Dolls Hand Made. The pattern includes both the large and the small gnome and they make the perfect whimsical holiday decor! And bonus: if you have kids or grandkids: unbreakable!

This Crochet Christmas Elves Pattern from R Nata is just the thing to bring some Christmas cheer and whimsy! I love patterns like this that come with delightful details that bring such joy as you work them up. Cute little accessories and details such as stripes and ruffles really add to an amigurumi pattern!

I just love the cartoonish character in this Rudolf the Reindeer XL Amigurumi Pattern from Il Dikko. If you have not checked out Il Dikko’s Etsy Shop before, you really should! So many whimsical amigurumi patterns filled with character and personality. I can’t wait to make one of these fun patterns one day!

If you like the gnomes with their eyes buried beneath their hats and beards, check out this Crocheted Snowman Amigurumi Pattern from Pink Pumpkin Studio. Such an adorable little snowman to sit on your mantel or nestle in your Christmas tree. I love everything about this sweet little snowman!

My dear knitter friends, there just aren’t as many cute knitting patterns out there when it comes to amigurumi. Crochet just works better for these little characters! It’s not too late to learn, you can always pick up a class from Craftsy. But I do have a couple of cute Christmas amigurumi patterns for you, including this fun Amigurumi Knit Penguin Pattern from Amy Gaines. Again with the penguin in the hat and scarf. Just something sweet about that.

Amy Gaines also has this Amigurumi Knit Winter Animals Ornament Pattern Set Pattern available which makes a fun Christmas gift or wrapping toppers. An adorable kniting pattern complete with a bunny, a fox, a reindeer, a mouse and a bear! And don’t forget the scarves!

I hope you find a delightful holiday amigurumi pattern to make while we’re all staying home and cozy this winter. Practice some crocheting and come out of lockdown with a newly honed skill and gifts for all your loved ones! Pick up one of these great patterns today or pin it for later!

Prepare for Fall with Fantastic Knit & Crochet Patterns

Yes, it’s still summer, but makers know that making for the next season must start before the season starts! These things take time!!! The slightly cooler evenings have me thinking about fall. And let me tell you, I’m not alone! So many makers and designers are dreaming of cosy sweaters and crunchy leaves and warm hats. If this is you and you needed a sign that it’s time to start preparing for the cooler weather ahead, consider this your sign! Also, I know makers will understand this: if you want to give handmade gifts this holiday season, it is time to make some decisions, pick up some yarn and get at it so you have time and your poor fingers and hands don’t suffer last-minute stress-making! I’ve collected a fun combination of knit and crochet patterns today that would be lovely for making as gifts or for yourself for this fall. Check them out and get making today!

Speaking of Thanksgiving: I know it’s early for Americans, but I live in Canada and our Thanksgiving comes a little earlier, so it’s not a bad time to start making this Thankful Table Runner Crochet Pattern from Two Little Birds Patterns.

This lovely table runner will make a great centrepiece on your Thanksgiving table. Get ready and be prepared for the season by getting the pattern here today.

If you have little dogs, the cold weather might not be their favourite.

How adorable would your family be in fall family photos in these matching hats. I’m not sure my kids would go for it at their ages, but maybe I could have made it happen a few years ago. Find this super cute pattern here.

If you need a little hat for your little pumpkin, check out this adorable Pumpkin Hat Knit Beanie Pattern from Dune and Purl.

Knit in a sport weight yarn, this shawl will take a little more time, but the drape and detail is just lovely and would make a luxurious accessory for yourself or an extravagant gift for that special person in your life. Get the pattern here.

Now that we’re into some projects that are a little more involved, I think you should check out The Kyla Sweater Tunic Edition knitting pattern from Happy Love Co. This oversized sweater is perfect to throw on over a pair of leggings and boots for the fall. And this is the perfect pattern if you’d like to get into knitting garments. Oversized patterns are very forgiving and this pattern has fairly simple stitches and an easy pattern to work up. If you want to make someone an amazing gift, this would work well because you wouldn’t need their exact measurements to make this oversized sweater pattern. Get the pattern here.

I love the look of an Off the Shoulder Chunky Knit Sweater Pattern, like this one from Darling Jadore. Sexy and warm, how can you go wrong for fall? The heavenly texture of this sweater knit with bulky weight (category 5) yarn is just so plush and lovely for fall. Find this cozy pattern here.

And you can’t very well think fall without including a cardigan pattern. The Juniper Cardi Crochet Pattern from Knits N Knots Wpg is the perfect transitional garment for this transitional season. Generously oversized, this easy crochet cardigan pattern is made with a worsted weight yarn, the suggested yarn is Lionbrand’s Vanna’s Choice, but I’m sure any worsted weight yarn from your stash will work! Pick up the pattern here.

I hope you found a fall pattern that excites you to stay inside more this fall.

Mad About Plaid Patterns

Plaid has been back in full force for fall and winter for a few years now. Classic buffalo plaid is becoming synonymous with rustic, chalet-style decor and outdoorsy aesthetic. It reminds me of hiking and warming up after chilly outdoor activities. It reminds me of an old-fashioned Christmas tree hunt and hot chocolate. When I discovered you could crochet a buffalo plaid pattern using red, maroon and black yarn together, I was so excited! It’s so fun to watch the plaid come together with simple stitches mixed with colour changes. So, if you’re mad about plaid, check out this collection of fantastic plaid patterns and plan to make something for the holidays.

My first try at plaid in crochet was with a pattern by Bethany from Whistle and Ivy. She’s got some great tutorials for learning to crochet this pattern. She’s also got plenty of free patterns on her website. She’s designed this little moose plaid lovey crochet pattern, which would be a great first start into plaid and you get to make a little bit of amigurumi, too! I shared her plaid hat pattern here on the blog before too.

She’s also got this adorable buffalo plaid ornament pattern! These little ornaments would make great stash busters and last-minute gift ideas for co-workers or friends! I love the festive toppers! They almost look like plaid apples for your tree! Anyone would be delighted to receive one of these as a gift!

The shop Two Little Birds Patterns has loads of cute plaid patterns to crochet, including this adorable plaid tree throw pillow crochet pattern. I love how the plaid pattern is just on the trees and makes a simple throw pillow a conversation piece. Crocheted with just a single crochet stitch, this is a great pattern for a relatively new crocheter to branch into colourwork.

You could also work up one of these crocheted buffalo plaid cowl patterns to add some buffalo plaid to your outdoor wardrobe. Perfect for chilly days when you want to add some warmth and some rustic style. This pattern looks pretty easy to crochet as it’s worked as a flat rectangle with a simple button edge. It’s a great pattern to show off some fun wooden buttons, too.

You can hardly have a collection of plaid patterns without a hat pattern. This Autumn Plaid Beanie Crochet Pattern is an adorable messy bun beanie pattern that makes room for a big top knot. I love the natural coloured brim she’s chosen for this hat and it’s a great idea to finish one of these cute hats off with a custom tag! Here’s where I got mine.

This hat is crocheted with a knit-look stitch called the waistcoat stitch; it makes a nice tightly woven knit-look fabric, perfect for hats and perfect for colourwork designs. The Plaid Pines Crochet Beanie pattern uses a different colourwork technique to form the plaid pattern, using only 2 colours of yarn to form the plaid pattern and alternating the two colours in the mid-tone sections. Such a festive tree pattern to make for the holiday season!

The Thermal Buffalo Plaid Toque Crochet Pattern is worked in a front post double crochet for a thick and cozy hat. I love a thick brim on a handmade hat and don’t forget one of those gorgeous faux fur pompoms! My personal favourites are from GingerSnap Handmade Co.

I love the plaid baubles on this Holiday Plaid Ornament Crochet Pillow Pattern and don’t you just love the detail of the jute bows on top? How adorable would this be decorating your living room during the holiday season? One of these pillows would make a perfect handmade gift idea for that person who has everything!

The Crochet Plaid Baby Blanket Pattern is an easy pattern perfect for beginners, using only a couple of basic stitches. The pattern makes a 53″ by 61″ blanket, but could easily be adjusted for a larger or smaller size, according to your preference. The plaid woven stitch makes this a warm and soft blanket, perfect for that new baby or a trendy throw for a living room.

I think plaid is just the right thing for a stocking. So festive! And can be made to match any colour scheme! This Buffalo Plaid Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern is a classic crochet stocking pattern with a simple textured stitch and a thick ribbed cuff! I love the added tassel details as well! Fill this up with some goodies for a lovely gift for anyone!

Back to another pattern by Whistle and Ivy. This Buffalo Plaid Crochet Wreath Pattern is such a fantastic take on the buffalo plaid trend; so cute for Christmas. I’m a total wreath fan. I love the rustic and fun look of this simple wreath. How cute would this be to welcome guests at a winter getaway cabin? So festive!

I hope you enjoyed this round-up of crocheted plaid patterns. If you haven’t tried this fun colourwork technique, now is the time to pick up a pattern and learn a new skill! It’s not so hard and the result is very impressive. I love to learn new methods of achieving interesting crocheted patterns! Grab a pattern today or pin it for later.

Amigurumi for Christmas

I just love amigurumi! According to Wikipedia: Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning “crocheted or knitted”, and nuigurumi, meaning “stuffed doll”. And this time of year is the perfect time to make some. Amigurumi is perfect for Christmas, as gifts for children, as decorations for your home or tree, as gifts for co-workers. They work up pretty quickly and are really fun to make; you can also use up some of your odds and ends of yarn since they’re usually pretty small and you can customise their colours to whatever you have on hand! So many people are delighted by amigurumi, it makes the perfect whimsical addition to this festive season! Check out these adorable stuffed crocheted creatures and pick out a pattern to start working on today!

How about this festive Little Christmas Deer Crochet Pattern? One pattern gives you all the instructions you need to make these little amigurumi deer dolls, with plenty of high-quality photos to walk you through it. Depending on the size of yarn you use, these little guys could be toys for kids or decorations for your tree!

How adorable are these gingerbread people? Again, here’s another pattern with instructions to make both tops: a Gingerbread Man and Girl Couple Amigurumi Pattern. How much fun would a set of these be for a newlywed couple for their first Christmas? They’re so sweet with all their decoration details!

I’m a sucker for gnomes! I love their big furry beards and festive hats on their squat, rotund bodies. Herbert the Christmas Gnome Amigurumi Pattern would make a great addition to my mantle (which is frankly looking a little sad this year… see my Instagram post about it). But I think this guy would spruce it right up!

Who can resist an adorable cartoon-ish Mr Santa Crochet Pattern? His cloud-like beard and little button eyes just draw you in. My kids were never really enamoured with Santa, and we never really forced them to sit on Santa’s knee because they always looked terrified of him. Besides, who wants to stand in line with kids for 20 minutes to traumatize your kids for an awful over-priced picture? My kids were slightly intrigued by the idea of the right jolly old elf, so I slightly regret not snapping a photo of them looking onto the spectacle of Santa visiting from a distance. I’m sure they would have been much more interested in a stuffed version of Santa like this cute little amigurumi doll.

Mr Pinny Crochet Amigurumi Pattern is a super cute, sweater-clad penguin doll ready to grace your Christmas tree with his chipper little face! It’s time for all the cold-weather creatures to come out and adorn our homes with their cuteness! I don’t know, though; do you think this little guy could use a hat? Or a scarf? He looks a little chilly. I think I’d make him a hat, too.

Of course, you don’t need to make Christmas themed Amigurumi to give out as a gift! You can make a stuffed toy that can be enjoyed year-round, like this Milo the Hipster Cat Amigurumi Pattern. What kid doesn’t want a stuffed cat in a hoodie? My kids love this kind of stuff and I’m sure yours would too!

Or if you have a princess-lover on your hands, this Princess Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Bundle would give you all the instructions you need to make a whole collection of princesses! These dolls are so adorable; how much more special will one of these dolls be to the recipient when they know it was made by your loving hands? That’s the beauty of handmade; so much pride involved in making and so much love felt in giving and receiving!

If you’re new to amigurumi, you could try something a little simpler, like this Crochet Star Amigurumi Pattern. Festive for the holiday season, but suitable to be displayed year-round. Make one with a thick, bulky yarn and you’d have a super fun pillow for a teen. It gets harder and harder to come up with good fun handmade gift ideas for teens as they get older. This would be a suitable option for an older kid and would make a fun addition to their bed.

Do you want a hippopotamus for Christmas? You can make one with this Crochet Hippo Amigurumi Pattern! This cuddly hippo would double as a super fun and functional pillow. Made with a big enough yarn, this friendly character would crochet up quickly and make a really snuggly stuffed friend for any kid. All this hippo needs is a cute little bow and to be displayed under the tree!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little introduction to various amigurumi characters you could make this Christmas. You’ve still got some time, so go pick up a pattern and get to work! What better things do you have to do as the weather turns colder than sit cosied up at home with your crocheting? Grab a pattern or pin it for later!

Farmhouse Crochet Patterns

One of the things I love about the farmhouse style is its rustic simplicity. It allows for imperfections and handmade touches. The style is warm and inviting because it embraces natural and comforting textures and fibres. There are so many trendy and modern ways to incorporate this homey DIY style into your home, especially at Christmas! If you’ve been wondering how you could bring some of this homey farmhouse vibe into your house, I’ve gathered a few crochet patterns here for you to try and bring some farmhouse inspiration into your decor!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

This simple and minimalist Bunting Banner Crochet Pattern is a great introduction to some handmade touches in your decor. With sweet tassels on the ends, this little banner can be made as long as you please. You can bring it out for special occasions or decorate a bedroom with it. You could make it in different colours to celebrate birthdays or just bring a spark of whimsy to a playroom. It’s a super simple pattern, great for beginners to learn to crochet!

If you just can’t see how that farmhouse style fitting in with your current decor, Christmas is definitely the time you can experiment with this homey style. You could try out this Snow Flurry Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern. It’s made with a super bulky (size 6) yarn and it’s actually a really easy pattern because it’s not a traditional circular shape, it’s a rectangle, like a scarf for your tree! Warm up your home with this cosy Christmas tree skirt this year.

Another great way to incorporate farmhouse style into your Christmas is with some little decorations. This Rustic Christmas Tree Crochet Pattern can be made in all different sizes and using different yarns to create a rustic Christmas display. Perfect for the mantle or the office, or a little vignette on an end table. These would make super cute gifts for coworkers, too!

I love wreaths. (Check out my Pinterest board full of wreaths!) and I love a wreath that can be used for more than just Christmas. This Farmhouse Jute Wreath Crochet Pattern would be perfect for spring or summer, but you could also pull it out for Christmas just as easily. Or make a different one decorated with more Christmas-y or wintery greenery. This is such a classic look and so so pretty. I think I need to make a couple of these this year.

Christmas or not, you can add some simple farmhouse charm to your front door by making this Buffalo Plaid Rug Crochet Pattern to welcome guests into your home. I love how the three colours come together to form the plaid pattern. Definitely fun to watch these kinds of projects come together!

Crochet for Christmas

Are you looking for some ideas for some handmade gifts you can make for Christmas this year? If you can crochet, there are a myriad of ideas out there, absolutely worth your time to make! It’s so touching to receive a handmade gift, one that you know a lot of thought and time has gone into. It’s such a neat experience for me to be able to make handmade gifts for my family and friends… I think about them as I make their gift, so there’s the extra special gift of having spent hours and hours (and hours and hours) thinking about the recipient that is built into this gift of love!

So, if you want to give that kind of love this gift-giving season, you’ve still got plenty of time to crochet something amazing. And I have got some great crochet patterns for you!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

A crocheted hat is a practical and lovely gift. This Brisk Beanie Crochet Pattern is trendy with its multiple textures and crochets up quickly with a 5 mm crochet hook. This is the kind of gift you can whip up in a couple of hours!

Isn’t this sweet vertical-striped Borealis Hat Crochet Pattern adorable? I love the rainbow yarn used in this example to make a super fun and brightly coloured hat for a child, or anyone who loves a pop of colour!

If you’re looking for something a little more Christmassy to make as a gift this season, check out this Vintage Crochet Granny Square Tree Skirt Pattern from Heirloom Knit Patterns. Because it’s a vintage pattern, you can get the .pdf for just a couple bucks! And you can choose the colours that suit your recipients (or your own… ;)) to make a perfectly customized tree skirt!

If granny squares aren’t your thing, this Crocheted Nativity Tree Skirt Pattern might be more your speed. I love the simplicity of the two colours and the multiple panels with different scenes.

I also love this Rustic Wonderland Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern with a chunky yarn and fantastic wooden buttons, this would be perfect for a farmhouse Christmas style.

Who doesn’t love snowmen? These Little Snowman Crocheted Christmas Ornaments would make perfect co-worker gifts! I love the embroidered snowflakes on the hat and scarf and the little stick arms on the other snowman are classic!

Perhaps you’d rather make a Snowman Christmas Ball Ornament; this little crochet pattern would also make a great gift for co-workers. I think they would also go well at craft sales if you’re the kind of person who makes for craft sales. Simple and quick, these would probably come together in a couple of hours, too.

Update: unfortunately, this exact pattern is not available any longer, but check out this cute Snowman Ornament Crochet Pattern as an alternative.

For a more traditional Christmas Ball Ornament Crochet Pattern, there’s this super colourful option, which I love and also think would come together quickly! How fun would a bunch of these be on a colourful tree? oOooOhh or they’d be even more perfect at a daycare or pre-school!? When I was a kid, we had glass ball ornaments, which could (and did!) break. Since I’ve had kids, I’ve only bought plastic ornaments so I wouldn’t have to worry about breakage; I could let my kids decorate and touch the tree without being a ball of worry. These would totally work to let kids decorate with!

While we’re in this colourful mood, you should also check out these cute Colourful Little Christmas Trees. I love the fun stripes and the beads that add so much character to these sweet little decorations. They would go along perfectly with those snowmen ball ornaments at your craft sale!

I’m also a big fan of these stockings! You can make this Mini Stocking Crochet Pattern into a bunting like these, with multiple colours, stripes, and follow the rainbow! What a fun decoration! OoooOooh… you could make 25 of them for an advent calendar bunting!

Here’s another great pattern to turn into a great garland: this Christmas Lights Crochet Pattern can be made into individual little ornaments or strung together for an adorable bunting! How fun are these?!

So, you see? With all these quick projects you could make in time for the holidays, you can really give a handmade gift to just about anyone you care about! Time to pull out that yarn and the hook, pick up a pattern and get to work! Or Pin it for later!

So many cute Christmas crochet patterns to make! Perfect handmade gift ideas! I can't wait to get started on these! Look at the little stockings! So adorable! #christmascrochet #handmadechristmas #crochetpatterns #crochetchristmas #craftevangelist
