51 Free Knitting Patterns for Christmas Decorations

Updated November 04, 2022
Free Knitting Patterns for Christmas Decorations

With stores putting out Christmas decorations as early as August, it's easy to just abandon your budget for a few days as you wander down the department store aisles, wallet in hand, and fill up your cart with every cute little Santa gnome and "Ho Ho Ho!" sign that you see.

Knitters and makers, like you and me, should think twice before doing things like this. Firstly, we have a skill that we love and have honed over (in some cases) many years, and what better time to use it than for the holidays? Secondly, who wants to have a home full of mass-produced decorations? I don't know about you, but I'm trying to make my home look like a reflection of my family and myself--not the Target 'Seasonal' aisle. Finally, imagine the environmental impact of all of this, when you could just dig into your yarn stash and use all these free, easy Christmas patterns to make something yourself!

These free knitting patterns for Christmas decorations are a good way to avoid all these pitfalls and put your knitting chops to good use. When you make something by hand that you and your family love, you'll find that you put it out every single year, spend less on decorations, and have a genuine sense of love for every piece you put up on your mantel.

The living room is my favorite place to decorate because it's so easy to temporarily replace throw pillows and blankets with something a little more jolly! These free knitting patterns for Christmas decorations are ones that you can snuggle up with while watching The Grinch on repeat.

Decorations for Under the Tree

An oft-neglected place that's rife with decorating potential is under the tree. Not only do little gift toppers double as an extra gift for your loved ones, but they really spice up the area! Plus, you can't forget the tree skirt.
