Holiday yarns are back in the stores, November is flying by, and I've already spotted three different people buying Christmas Trees! It's officially holiday crafting season! While everyone else complains about "Christmas stuff out already?!," we crafters know that you can never start too soon. So to kick the season off here on moogly, here are 10 fresh and free crochet Christmas Ornament patterns!
Granny X-mas on Pickles: It calls for lace weight Merino, but you could easily go with size 10 or 30 cotton crochet thread - much more economical!This pattern is no longer available, but you can get the look with this free pattern on Maize Hutton!
- Little Robin Christmas Tree Decoration by Laura Tegg: This pattern uses DK or sport weight yarn, but the result is just 2.5 inches! You can make lots and lots with just one skein of each color.

- Quick and Easy Christmas Ornament by Roswitha Mueller: These simple angels are very sweet, and there's a knit version too!
