It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Along with the holiday season upon us, it’s also prime “crochet season” as well. Whether you’re crocheting gifts for family or getting your pieces ready for craft fairs, there’s no shortage of yarn at this time of year. And with the yarn action in full swing, it seems like the perfect time to showcase some fun Christmas crochet patterns!


About Designer Spotlight

If this is your first time checking out a Designer Spotlight post, then you’re in for a treat! Pineapple & Pine Designer Spotlight is a way to feature different crochet designers and their patterns. Every other month we have a new theme and new batch of designers to showcase. This month our theme is the 12 Days of Christmas, so we’ll be sharing some fun holiday themed patterns.

How it Works

Each day during the Spotlight, I will be featuring a new designer and their pattern. There will also be an exclusive coupon code just for you to use that day. All of our designers will have at least a 50% off discount for you…some might even be free!

The Snowbound Christmas Ornament

By Christina Ann Studios

Pattern Description

The Snowbound Christmas Ornament combines intermediate-level crochet techniques with easy embroidery to create a lovely disc-shaped ornament. The ornament is made using DK weight cotton yarn, 4″ macrame ring, and ribbon or cord for hanging the ornament. Two detailed embroidery charts, thirteen step-by-step photos, and diagrams are included within the pattern to help you along the way.

Inspiration

The inspiration for this piece came from simplistic, modern ceramic designs. I fell in love with ceramic disc ornaments in particular and wanted to find a way to recreate the light, airy feel of these ornaments with crochet.

Christmas Tree and Star Crochet Garland

By The Knotted Nest

Pattern Description

This Christmas Tree and Star Crochet Garland will have your home ready for Christmas in no time! Fast and easy to make, the 2D style pieces (two flat panels, stuffed and joined together) can be made into a garland for a festive addition to your fireplace or place setting decor. The pieces can even be strung individually to use as ornaments. The garland is quick to work up and is a great stash buster since it doesn’t use a lot of yarn. As written, the garland measures about 6ft long and each piece is ranges from 3″ (stars) to 6″ (trees) tall.

Inspiration

This pattern was inspired by a goal I set for myself to include more handmade items in my seasonal and holiday decor in 2020. This year, I’ve designed several seasonal crochet pillows, rugs, and garlands. This Christmas garland is the finale!

Oh So Merry Wine Tote

By Carroway Crochet

Pattern Description

With Christmas approaching, now’s a great time to introduce the Oh So Merry Wine Tote. The “Oh So Merry Wine Tote” is a fun way to gift wine over the Christmas season.  This pattern uses a super bulky weight yarn and the single crochet stitch. It also uses a white faux fur to trim the top. The added snowflake gives it a whimsical feel and to bring a real wintery style to this Christmas Wine Tote.

Inspiration

One of my favourite gifts to give at Christmas is a bottle of wine. You can never go wrong with this gift when it comes to your wine-loving friends. SO I came up with this quick and easy pattern to make a unique and fun wine tote to gift your bottle of wine in. It features a cool handle for carrying your wine with instructions that are easy to follow. I love the touch of faux fur on the top, and I designed a fun snowflake to add as a feature if you like, although this is purely optional.

Merry + Bright Wine Sleeve

By Hooks Books & Wanderlust

Pattern Description

The Merry + Bright Wine Sleeve is the perfect way to dress up a bottle of wine! It’s a quick make using a combination of structured stitches and texture to give it both beauty and function. What’s best about it is that this pattern is written with teaching in mind! This advanced beginner pattern uses basic stitches in thoroughly explained instructions (written, photos, videos, and stitch tutorials) to get you the “Wow! You made that?!” reaction every time.

Inspiration

Inspired by the texture I stumbled on when making my XOXO Throw, I wanted to bring that same texture to life in a quick-to-make wine sleeve that I could use when giving out bottles of wine for the holidays, because we can all use a little more merry and bright!
