Taking something like yarn and turning it into a beautiful ornament is a fun way to make yourself feel useful, am I right? I love that you can make holiday ornaments with a little yarn and some time. The owls and the gingerbread houses are two of my favorites from this list. They are so cute and I know several people that collect owls. The gingerbread ones are the ones I want to make for myself.

This is a great grouping of ornament patterns. I love them all. And they are all very easy to make. It's also a great way to use up my scraps. That's always a good thing. And some of these patterns are good for every day things. A dream catcher can be used year around.

I too was hoping for a e-book full of patterns for Christmas ornaments. I'll have to wait for the book, but I did save this page so I can come back to the patterns listed above. I think some of these ornaments are so sweet I'll be making them next year. Come Christmas 2017, I'll have a lot of new home made Christmas ornaments to put on the tree and give as gifts. Thank you for this list of free Crochet Ornaments.

The eBook is here. It includes some of the projects above, too!

I keep seeing notices like this on AllFree, eagerly click on the link thinking it's a book, only to be disappointed in that it's simply a list of links. Such a downer for this Old Bat.

We apologize. We are currently working on a crochet eBook, though! It should be available within the next month. It's an awesome collection. Please check back in the eBooks section (We also have some others you may enjoy) http// Thanks, Krista, Editor, AllFreeChristmasCrafts

The eBook is live. Check it out here:

I love the variety of ornaments in this list!

What a nice surprise to find this morning. I have been crocheting of more years than I want to admit and I have made the crochet stars, trees and Angels, but you have just given me an tire new selection. The peppermint candy one in particular. I decided last year to do the entire tree in red and white and those designs like candy. I found the lights, and many ornaments. Now I can add these and not worry about little hands breaking them.
