Crochet Christmas Light Applique Free Pattern & Photo Tutorial

This little Christmas light applique is so useful for your holiday crocheting! Work up a few for gift tags or a bunch and string them together for a decorative 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!
