Knitting, Crochet, and Craft Patterns from Liz @PurlsAndPixels

With the holiday quickly approaching, I thought it might be helpful to round up all of my holiday-themed knitting and crochet patterns in one place. From knit mitten ornaments to garlands to potholders, my patterns and guides can help you add some handmade items to your holiday season.

Tiny Knit Mitten Ornaments

Mitten Holiday Ornament Free Knitting Pattern from Liz @PurlsAndPixelsThese adorable knit mittens are perfect on the Christmas tree. Or try making a bunch of them and stringing them on a decorative garland to create a fun holiday decor accent. They are perfect to use up some of that scrap yarn that gets collected over the year. Since they are so small, these little knit mittens can be whipped up in no time. Find the pattern here.

Peppermint Twist Garland

If you’re looking for a unique garland to add to your tree, string down the banister of your stairs, or drape along your mantle, this handmade craft is just for you. Chaining red and white yarn together creates an adorable peppermint effect. Since making this garland is so simple, you can let your kids give it a try for a fun family holiday activity. Find the pattern here.

Cherry Candy Cane Potholder

Easy cherry candy cane pot holder knitting pattern a quick holiday knitting project from Liz @PurlsAndPixels

This oversize potholder looks adorable as a holiday-themed accent. Place flowers, a poinsettia, or little statutes on it for a festive look. Made with very thick yarn, doubled up, this pot holder can be knitted quite quickly. Using the recommended yarn color, you’ll find it resembles the adorable (and tasty!) cherry candy canes you find at Christmastime. You could even try making a cherry candy cane centerpiece to display on top of your potholder. Get a simple vase or jar and simply fill it with cherry candy canes, and voila, you’ll have an adorably crafty holiday decor accent in no time! Find the pattern here.

Santa’s Gift Tags

Free printable "from Santa" gift tags from PurlsAndPixels

Keep the Christmas spirit going with little gift tags from Santa himself. Make sure all of the tags that are on Santa’s presents look like they came from the same place; Santa’s work shop. Using the same adorable gift tags every year is a fun way to keep Santa’s gifts consistent. A downloadable word document lets you edit the gift-tags can be altered to display your little one’s name. Find the pattern here.

Cookies as Gifts – Shipping Tips

Cookies before being given as gifts by PurlsAndPixels

As well as decorating with handmade crafts, you may want to send a little homemade love to friends and family who can’t be with you over the holiday season. I love to ship Christmas cookies to my far-away relatives. Check out my shipping tips to help make sure the cookies arrive in good shape. Nobody likes getting a big box of crumbs! Find my tips here.
