This little crochet Christmas light applique is so useful for your holiday crocheting! The Crochet Christmas Lights make great handmade gift tags to add to your holiday boxes.
Crochet a colorful selection of Christmas Lights and string them together for a decorative crochet Christmas Lights garland.
I came up with this Christmas light pattern for a throw blanket I designed for my aunt. Her birthday is the 22nd of December so it’s her tradition to drive around and look at Christmas lights.
She lives in Texas, right where Hurricane Harvey hit hardest and her home was flooded. Fortunately, they were able to renovate the damage to their home.
So I wanted to gift her an extra special gift, and this was just the perfect combo-a new blanket to snuggle up under in her “new-old” home.
Check out the Christmas Light Blanket Pattern that I added these little lights to here.
And now I’m here today to share the Christmas light pattern with you. I’ve included pictures so even if you’re new to crocheting, this pattern is easy to follow. I love a fast project that uses scrap yarn-bonus!
7 yds worsted weight yarn-I’m using Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn* 5 yds in red & 2 yds green
sc2tog-single crochet two together (decrease): insert hook into first stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook), insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook.
1″ x 1″ = 4 sc x 4 rows
