How do you crochet a Christmas garland?

It’s not too hard to crochet a garland for your own home this Christmas. Here’s a tip for you: you can actually take any flat applique-style pattern and make it into a garland!

Take the flat items (whether it be trees, snowflakes, etc.) and either make a long chain to attach them to, or use something like ribbon or burlap.

This is a great way to make a custom christmas garland. But of course, if you like more detailed instructions and photos, stay tuned for some awesome patterns!

Yarn to Crochet Christmas Garlands

Most Christmas crochet garlands will call for worsted weight yarn. However, there are definitely exceptions to this! For example, one of the patterns in this list uses bulky yarn, and one uses crochet thread.

It is best to refer to the specific pattern you’re making for yarn recommendations—unless you’re coming up with a custom garland. Then it’s really up to you and the finished look/style you’re going for!
