‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas’ mood has finally arrived! As autumn packs her bags, and winter generously starts covering everything in snow, one city at a time, we can’t help but get in the festive mood. Who would resist a thousand lights covering the city, the gorgeous, breath-taking shopping decorations that make you feel happy as a child in a candy store, and the cheerful, happy Christmas spirit that simply fills out the cold air? No one! That’s why so many of us prefer to start decorating our homes earlier, just so we can enjoy the Christmas spirit a few more minutes.
While Christmas decorating and getting festive is fun, which will make this experience even more enjoyable is having these decorations done by ourselves!

And who can resist that?
To help you start this Christmas season, we have compiled our cheerful 25 free Christmas Crochet Patterns You-Need-to-Try-for-Your-Holiday-Party-list that will help you bring Christmas magic into your home and the homes of those you love!
