By now, I'm sure you're all going crazy finishing up those last-minute gifts. If you're anything like me, then procrastination is king and stress results in a better product (I don't know how, but it does. Really.)
But in the midst of all the chaos, we could all use a little break, if for no other reason than to get back in the spirit of the season. That's why I've selected these ridiculously fun and quick crochet patterns for you to make before the festivities end. As a bonus, you can use them to decorate your house or attach to gifts (because you're done with those, right)?
PLUS, if you've purchased a ton of holiday-themed yarn from Blitsy (or just want an excuse to buy more), then you'll love that these patterns are from companies whose products are consistently featured on Blitsy. Just head over here to see what's currently available for all your crocheting needs.
Anyway, onward to my favorite quick-to-crochet free patterns:
Festive Ornament Frames (Red Heart)
Okay, I'm a sentimental person and will admit that my parents have very similar ornaments hanging on their tree at "home". They're from when I was a kid, of course, and I love to see myself as a 7-year-old every year. It's pretty cute. It's also an adorable keepsake you'll treasure year after year. And they'll last forever, too. Also, SPARKLE YARN. YEAH!
Glamour Gift Bows (Red Heart)
How fan-freakin'-tastic are these bows? Not only are they quick to make, but they're a gorgeous accent to any wrapping paper (especially since you can make them to coordinate perfectly with that wrapping paper you chose this year). Even better: you can reuse them next Christmas because they won't get tossed in a garbage bag - we hope.
Gift Card Stocking (Yarnspirations)
Because we all need a more creative way to gift a card that doesn't include jamming it into a corporate-branded box. It's a fun way to use up those scraps, too!
Santa Pillow (Yarnspirations)
Feeling a little ambitious? Just want to spruce up your couch or give the wee ones something to cuddle with on Christmas Eve? Then this Santa Pillow is sure to please everyone in the family. Fun and fast, you'll want to showcase this guy (and your craftsmanship) in your Christmas decor for years to come.
Now that you've picked out a favorite free crochet pattern, it's time for the most important part:
Make sure to set aside one night to sit back in your jammies with a cup of hot cocoa and one of these projects. You'll forget all your worries - or at least decompress - for a couple hours and create something truly special. If that doesn't put you in a holiday mood, then...nah, you'll love it!
