Since the year 2009 I have crocheted a Christmas ornament to give out with Christmas cards for our family members, neighbors and friends. I really like doing this! It’s not terribly expensive, because these small ornaments don’t take much yarn and the patterns I’ve used are free! I can recommend all of these patterns to use for your gifts this Christmas. They work up quick and look great!
Below are listed the ornaments I crocheted, along with the pattern link and its author (may require Ravelry login to download a PDF):
2010: Santa Ornament by Lion Brand Yarn (I love this one!)
Also, in 2012 I wrote a pattern for a crochet “Peg” Nativity Pieces. They are great for gifts for kids and help them have their own nativity to tell the Christmas story!
