Knitting Patterns for Christmas

If you love to knit, then this collection of 25 Knitting Patterns for Christmas will give you some knit crafts to make year-round in preparation for Christmas. Some of these knitting patterns are fast, easy, and perfect for beginners, whereas others are more advanced and tedious. However, either way, the end results are amazing and well worth the effort. Each category of projects is specific to a certain type of knit Christmas craft, so if you are looking for something in particular, you can jump to the most fitting category.

We have various knitted DIY ornaments that you can knit for your own Christmas tree or give as gifts to loved ones. All of these ornaments are so beautiful and unique that you may never want to buy another pre-made ornament again! We also have other knit decor that works for any of the rooms in the house. These home decor crafts include terrific tabletop trees, gorgeous garlands, and accessories for gifts, amongst others.

The knit Christmas stockings category will certainly be a reader favorite. These stockings are spectacular and will last for generations. Nothing beats filling a homemade stocking with goodies and waiting for the recipient to dig through their stocking to find all the treats. The last category involves all sorts of wearable crafts, which is why it's the most useful. These scarves, hats, hand warmers, etc, make wonderfully thoughtful gifts or can be made to keep yourself warm during the coldest of winter days and nights.

Knit Christmas Ornaments

Santa, elves, and bears, oh my! You will love these homemade Christmas ornaments, we promise. They are uncommon, unexpected, and range from simple to advanced in skill level. The Winter Hat Ornaments don't even require knitting needles and can be made by kids!

When it comes to knitting projects for Christmas, nothing is more popular than knit Christmas stockings. This classic craft is relaxing and enjoyable, with fantastic results. Many of these are vintage, but a few are modern, like the Crazy Colorful Knit Stocking. There's something for everyone.

Scarf Knitting Patterns and Other Wearable Crafts

Sure, you can buy a scarf, but why not make one instead? The same goes for hand warmers and other wearables. If you are feeling festive, make a knit Santa hat to wear on Christmas.
