Cozy Crochet Christmas Lights

25 November, 2015

I know we’re biased, but check out these crochet Christmas Lights. Are they not the sweetest holiday decoration? The pattern utilizes Natura Just Cotton, which is a versatile thread (you can use it for both knitting and crochet) that is also nice and soft to the touch.

These would be a great addition to your Christmas tree or your table, or string them up around the room to really showcase them. We love their old school look—they definitely stand out from all those run-of-the-mill plastic decorations. So get the pattern and get started. Christmas is right around the corner!

Get the pattern below.

Crochet Christmas Lights Pattern

Note: Do not join and do not turn at the end of each round, rounds are worked in continuous spirals.

How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.

Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round. Move the marker up each time you start a new round.
