Christmas knitting and crochet ideas

Strick- und Häkelideen zur Weihnachtszeit

Santa Claus socks with massage effect

These red and white socks are wonderfully cozy and, above all, funny. The border made of white long-haired wool is an absolute must. This will quickly create a Christmas mood! People like to wear these socks on cozy evenings at home. Of course they are also a great gift idea!

Knit decorative gift bags

Nicholas left them there: Small, very pretty gift bags, of course in red and white and knitted in the Norgweg pattern. Perfect for giving small presents to family members or dear friends. The best thing is to let a fir branch flash out.

Chair cover in the form of a Santa Claus hat

It is a bit of work to knit these several times, but it is great fun! And once you've knitted four pieces, you can use them over and over again for years throughout Advent. Of course, you can also use the hats elsewhere in the apartment as decoration.

Knit Christmas decorations for the table and tree

There is still time until Christmas and we can spend the cold evenings at home comfortably knitting or crocheting decorative figures for the table and tree. Once you have started knitting moose, angels or stars, you can hardly stop. Especially when everyone who sees the little fellows is enthusiastic and wants one too.

One is easily infected by this new wave of knitting, which is absolutely not reduced to practicality, but particularly affects decorative objects.

Crochet reindeer: Preferably lots of them!

You can let small reindeer dangle wonderfully from the tree or you can make them as table decorations. This is very sweet and also appeals to Christmas grouches. When they come in packs, it looks even better. You can of course also give them to your guests. If it should be a pendant, then you sew a thread to the animal.

Santa Claus hats as napkin rings

Quickly knitted and versatile: You can of course fill the sweet hats with gingerbread and all kinds of sweets or with small gifts. Small fir branches are also used as decoration.

Candy canes knitted as a pendant

You hang candy canes on trees, especially in America. It used to be real candy canes that you can still hang in the tree of course. In Germany, however, they are more difficult to come by. They are more likely to be found as decoration. But why not knit yourself? This makes them look much cozier and cannot break.

Knit Christmas sweater

Perhaps you know the trend from the USA to decorate themselves with the most "ugly" possible, i.e. rather brightly colored and somewhat tasteless Christmas sweaters at Christmas time? It has become a real sport among celebrities to photograph themselves with "ugly" Christmas sweaters. The trend is also spilling over to us a bit. Whether the sweaters really have to be tasteless or just pretty Christmassy is up to you. All kinds of Christmas motifs such as snowmen, fir trees, reindeer or Santa Claus himself can be depicted on the sweater.

Of course, these sweaters can look very nice if you use harmonious colors, for example a white Norwegian pattern on a red background and a white snowman on it. Or a reindeer in brown with a red nose on a green background.These sweaters only become ugly or ugly if you are wrong about the colors and mix everything too brightly. The Americans play with them and enjoy them. It's just part of the season to wear Christmas sweaters. We present you with instructions here. Basically, you only need a normal sweater cut, which you knit in the pattern in stocking stitch. A Christmas picture is then knitted into it. You can also find templates and motifs on the web.
