Christmas Ornaments For Knitters and Crocheters

Christmas Ornaments For Knitters

Christmas is almost here. Are your trees ready for the Santa? If you are a knitter at the hearth, your Christmas tree isn’t complete without knitters Christmas ornaments. A handmade Christmas ornament can be as simple or as hard you would like. You can make a bunch in hours and you can even give them away as gifts.

Making DIY Christmas ornaments aren’t time-consuming like a knitted blanket for say. To create dazzling Christmas ornaments, you don’t need to know complicated stitches or complex patterns to make good use of your leftover yarn. Even beginners can add some glamour to the Christmas tree with some basic patterns to knit.

We gathered some ideas for beginners, and some challenging ones for more experienced knitters out there. Use these ideas to show off your skills and decorate your tree.

Knit Tiny Santa Hat

This little Santa hat is easy to make and doesn’t need many materials. You can use your scrap yarn easily for this little project. You will need smaller knitting needles suitable for the size you want your tiny Santa hats going to be. If you don’t know how to knit a simple beanie you can just knit a tiny piece of a square and sew the ends for it to look like a hat. Add ribbon and a tiny pom-pom and hang. Simple is that.

Crochet Santa

If you are not down just for the hat of the Santa, you might want to grab your crochet needle and start with this little project. You will need some red, white and tan colored yarn for the face of the Santa. Start by a simple chain of 3 with the tan colored yarn and fill the first chain with 5 double crochets. Now you can add White yarn and do 5 more double crochets and finish your first circle. This is the base of the face. You can use this technic to make simple faces, like a snowman even.

Knit and Crochet Stars

This idea is for the knitters who are confident with their skills. It’s worth the time you put into these little colorful stars. They will look gorgeous on your Christmas tree and they are perfect gifts for close friends and family. You can fill them if you want with fiber, or you can make them as one dimensional. You can also use crochet patterns to make variations of them. For this project, you’ll need a circular needle and 4 double pointed needles. Start by casting on 115 stitches and knit 1 row.

Row 1: knit 21, (slip 2 stitches together knitwise, knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over, knit 20) 4 times, slip 2 stitches together knitwise, knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over. (105 stitches.)

Row 2: knit 19, (slip 2 stitches together knitwise, knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over, knit 18) 4 times, slip 2 stitches together knitwise, knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over. (95 stitches.)

Every row, decrease 2 stitches just like the pattern and repeat for each row. You’ll end up 5 stitches left at Row 11.

Row 11: knit 1, (slip 2 stitches together knitwise, knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over) 5 times. (5 stitches.) Cut yarn leaving a 20 cm tail. Thread tail through remaining 5 stitches, tighten and secure the end. You can add a ribbon at this point and sew your 2 sides of stars. Fill it with fiber.

Crochet Pine Cones

We are in love with these colorful pine cones. They may look somewhat complex and these might take a while to finish but it is going to worth it when you see them on your tree. This project is using the simple technic called the crocodile stitch. It’s a wonderful idea to use this stitch to create pine cones.

Knit and Crochet Balls

This might be the smartest way to make good use of your scrap yarn from previous projects. These are the classic decorations to hang on your Christmas tree. Might be a little time consuming but they are the essentials. If you want to knit balls, you’ll need double pointed needles like the ones you use for knitting socks. Or you can use amigurumi technics to create a ball shape. You don’t need to fill them with fiber, you can use styrofoam balls to hold them in place. Add thread or ribbon and hang them on your tree.
