Have you started on your Christmas crochet patterns yet? There’s just something so neat and special about receiving a homemade gift, and there’s nothing quite like the sense of accomplishment you feel when you display a homemade piece of décor.

That said, with how busy the holiday season gets, it can be overwhelming and tricky to try and hunt down good décor and gift patterns. That’s why I’ve put together this list of different designs that range in difficulty and time to make so that you can choose the perfect pattern!

Best Yarn For Christmas Decorations

Most commonly, crocheters use worsted weight yarn to crochet decorations for Christmas. This is an easy yarn weight to work with. The exact yarn you choose is up to you and the pattern you’re making.

But to be honest, I often just use whatever is in my stash! Decorations are one of those things where the exact yarn isn’t absolutely necessary because gauge isn’t important. If you’re ok with the size turning out a little different, go ahead and try a new yarn!
