Is there anything that will get you more into the holiday spirit than creating some crochet Christmas ornaments? Nothing quite beats the cozy warm glow of lights on a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.

Whether you’re looking to deck out your tree in all its holiday glory or you’re just looking for one special ornament this year, these adorable Christmas ornament crochet patterns are sure to be a perfect fit.

One of my favorite things to do every year is to pull out each ornament and savor the rush of memories. My son’s childhood handwriting on the construction paper gift he was SO excited to give. The glass-blown ornament was bought on a cold November afternoon from a local artisan.

Handmade beaded stars, crocheted angels, a candy cane hiding between branches, and a crochet ornament here and there flood my soul with my grandmother’s laugh and I think of her hands on them before mine. Memories of different times and places make me feel the range of emotions of a life well lived.

But every year, no matter the crowded nature of my tree, I find a way to tuck in just one more. One more glorious, beautiful bit to remember THIS year by… So some future Christmas season I can smile and fondly remember the present and those who’ve lived and loved with me this year.

And so I bring to you my favorite Christmas ornament crochet patterns by some of my favorite designers. Perhaps you’ll find a cute ornament to crochet for yourself to treasure. Or make a crochet ornament to gift to someone else.

  1. Hello Cheryl,
    I just felt the need to say thank you for your post. I hadn’t realised how much I miss how Christmas used to be when I was growing up. I’m mid fifties now and the only family I really have is my son (24) who has never really liked Christmas – no idea why, he’s only interested in the pretty lights and maybe a tree on his desk.
    Your memories brought back loads of mine, so many of the people who made the season special for me have long since passed away and I yearn to have that time back again.
    I love reading your posts and emails because you have such a great way of telling the stories of your life. Thank you so much for sharing those and for your generosity with all the beautiful patterns you create and find for your readers.
    Best wishes,

    1. I just checked and it seems it is no longer available 🙁 you could try messaging the store owner on Etsy in case it’s just temporarily out of stock.
