Christmas garlands, buntings, pennants... whatever you call them, they're everywhere this year! Both classic and new, holiday garlands are a great way to decorate for the season. Wrapped around a tree, draped across a mantle or doorway, pinned to the curtains, or even in that proverbial hallway, garlands go everywhere. These 10 free crochet Christmas garland patterns are some of the best I've seen!

Finding time to craft for the holidays is tough, but just like crochet ornaments, holiday garlands are a perfect on-the-go project. In the car on the way to Thanksgiving dinner, while waiting for the kids to get out of school, in the office waiting room, standing in long lines at the store - you can make big progress in just a few minutes. Make them for your own home or give them as gifts - crochet holiday garlands are a great project this winter!
