Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt Free Pattern with Peppermint Candy Style - Knot My Designs

Christmas Treeskirt

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
(Big, fat Santa’s on his way)…

Christmas Carols, Christmas decorations, Christmas is on the way!

It’s Christmas! Every mall, every store, every home looks beautiful decorated with Poinsettia, candles, lights, stockings, gift-wrapped items, wreaths made with pinecones and lots of other ornaments. But any decoration is incomplete without a Christmas tree!

History (wiki) says that according to the Encyclopædia Britannica, “The use of evergreen trees, wreaths, and garlands to symbolise eternal life was a custom of the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, and Hebrews. Tree worship was common among the pagan Europeans and survived their conversion to Christianity in the Scandinavian customs of decorating the house and barn with evergreens at the New Year to scare away the devil and of setting up a tree for the birds during Christmastime.”

Another folk version defined Christmas tree as “Tree of Paradise in remembrance of the birth of Adam and Eve; where the tree with apples is now replaced with the red shiny baubles.”

In modern world, we decorate them with bells, candy canes, snow globes, lights, garlands, ribbons, tinsels, golden, silver and other different colored baubles; the tree skirt covers the tree stand;  snowman or reindeer shaped ornaments are hanged; and a star at the tree top is added to complete the decoration.

Process:

When my customer was decorating her Christmas tree, she approached me for Christmas tree skirt for her tree. After gathering the details about the decoration theme, I decided to make a peppermint candy style tree skirt with nude and red yarn. I followed the Redheart – Peppermint Candy Throw and Pillow pattern.

But it was difficult to get the initial startup. So, I used SmoothFoxLover – Christmas Tree Skirt to get the start.

My tree skirt dimension was supposed to be 50″ in diameter. I worked for 6 rows as mentioned in the pattern. Then instead of switching yarn at alternate rows, I followed the Redheart – Peppermint Candy Throw and Pillow procedure to continue further. I kept on increasing counts till the skirt diameter was 50″.

Pattern:-

The design is evolved from bits and pieces of 2 different patterns. It can be divided into sections for better understanding.

  1. Initial Shell stitch line.
  2. Expansion of the Open Base.
  3. Peppermint Style Body

Initial Shell Stitch line:-

R1: With Bone Color (Base Color- BC). Chain 5.

R2: Double Crochet (DC) in the 4th chain from the hook, DC in the 5th chain in the hook. (A shell is created) Do not cut the yarn; do not turn.

R3: Chain 5, DC in the 4th and 5th ch as in R2.

Repeat R3 or keep adding shells to the line 16 more times. Do not cut the yarn.  Total 18 shells, 36 DC, 18 ch-3 space.

Expansion of the Open Base:-

R1: Join Autumn Red (Contrast Color-CC) on the right side (RS); (Ch 2, DC, Ch 2, 2DC) in the 1st ch-3 space. Make [V stitch]¹ on every ch-3 space. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 72 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

R2: Continue with CC on the wrong side (WS); Slip Stitch on 1st DC. Ch 3, [V stitch]¹ in the 1st ch-2 space, DC in DC, *Skip 2 stitches, DC in next stitch, [V stitch]¹ in ch-2 space, DC in DC*; repeat *-* till the end. Skip the last stitch. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 108 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

R3: RS: Slip Stitch on 1st DC. Ch 3, DC in next DC, [V stitch]¹ in the 1st ch-2 space, DC in 2 DC, *Skip 2 stitches, DC in 2 DC, [V stitch]¹ in ch-2 space, DC in 2 DC*; repeat *-* till the end. Skip the last stitch. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 144 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

Peppermint Style Body:-

R1: using Base color (carrying CC in the back), Ch 2, DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 space, DC in 4 DC; *with CC in front and BC in back (DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 sp, DC in 4 DC), with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 sp, DC in 4 DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 10 DC.Turn. Total 180 DC. 90 BC- DC, 90 CC-DC.

R2: Using CC in front and BC in back; Ch 2, DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC; *with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC), with CC in front and BC in back (DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 11 DC.Turn. Total 198 DC. 99 BC- DC, 99 CC-DC.

R3: Using BC in front and CC in back; Ch 2, DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC; *with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC), with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 12 DC.Turn. Total 216 DC. 108 BC- DC,108 CC-DC.

Repeat R2- R3 till you get the desired diameter. I aimed for 50″.

¹[V Stitch] – (2 DC, Ch 2, 2DC) in same chain space.

Caution Section:-

  1. This tree skirt contains 2 colours divided into alternate Red and Bone colour 6 times.
  2. Make sure the next row should match the colour sequence of the previous row.
  3. Carry the other colour in the back to avoid knots and joining of the yarn.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • The diameter of the tree skirt: 50″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • You can add a different colour edging to the tree skirt.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Santa Sons Earflap Hat for Toddler - Knot My Designs

Santa Sons Earflap Hat

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus Lane.
 
Vixen, Blitzen, all his reindeer
Pulling on the reins.
Bells are ringing, children singing,
All is merry and bright.
Hang your stockings and say a prayer,
‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Christmas is here. All kids are waiting for Santa who’ll get them the presents they wished for. He’ll bring the joy, the wish, the happiness and make this Christmas more jovial. Who was the real Santa? whychristmas explains the story behind our cute and chubby Santa. St.Nicholas secretly started giving gifts to poor and needy people. For one poor family, in order to get their daughters married, he dropped the bag of gold down the chimney into their house. It fell into the stocking that was drying by the fireplace.

Some people do say that Santa is a myth but whatever it is, Christmas gives everyone a reason to rekindle childhood, to be a kid and enjoy that time of the year with the family, and even though these people forgot the stories, delivering gifts to the children has been continuing.

Process:

I want to gift my two nephews a Christmas present too. So, here it is, a Santa Earflap Hat for both of my nephews. I liked the pattern from Micah Makes – Crochet Santa Hat. It is normal procedure of making an earflap hat with Half Double Crochet (HDC).

Body:-

We just need to take care of black belt formation. It should be almost at the end of the hat. Since the belt is 1″, stop your red colour yarn and work on your black yarn.

It is all about correct calculation. Check the gauge required to make 1″. Out of 6″ of the height, work 4.5″ on HDC with red, then 1″ of black and then 0.5″ red.

Belt Buckle:-

R1: With yellow yarn, ch 28; join at the beginning.

R2: Ch 1, Single Crochet (SC) for 4 chains, 3 SC in next chain, SC for 9 chains, 3 SC in next chain, SC for 4 chains, 3 SC in next chain, SC for 9 chains, 3 SC in next chain. Join at the beginning.

Caution Section:-

  1. Calculation of the position of Black belt band is important.
  2. It will be easy if the basics hat excluding ear flaps are defined. For e.g. if the total height of the earflap hat is 8″ where 2″ is assigned for ear flaps, then the basic hat should be 6″ in height.
  3. Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the black belt can be set.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the ear flap head: 6″
  • Height of the flap: 2″
  • Circumference: 18″-20″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • you can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

But I do not think we need to go for any other additional anymore. The Santa costume captured in the hat is enough to enjoy.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Christy Moss Slouch Hat for Christmas for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Christy Moss Slouch Hat

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Silent night, holy night,
Bethlehem sleeps, yet what light,
Floats around the heavenly pair;
Songs of angels fill the air.
Strains of heavenly peace.

In continuation of our conversation around traditions and customs of Christmas, this time, I am talking about Christmas Carols.

Carols meant singing and dancing and ultimately enjoying. Earlier people followed it throughout the year, but slowly this trend was lost with time and carols got more associated with Christmas. You might have heard about singing pagan songs, Angels Hymn that defined singing Christmas Carols for the generations. Later in 1600’s, the carol singing started gaining popularity with orchestras and choirs. They composed new songs and till today people follow it religiously at every home on the Christmas Eve.

As promised, I decided to make a slouch hat for an adult woman for Christmas. I have already shared Santa Claus Hat for men, Cherry Wherry Slouch Hat for an adult woman. Time to celebrate this Christmas in style with the classic red and white Crochet Christy Moss slouchy hat for women. Bring style, season n comfort together.

Process:

I liked MeladorasCreations – Moss Stitch Slouch Hat pattern for any female adult. You can wear it casually while travelling for work too. I modified it as I was looking for a Christmasy look or Christmasy effect on the hat. I avoided pom-pom to give it more subtle look. But then I did more than a few modifications.

Modifications:-

Brim:-

R1: chain 12, single crochet on a 2nd hook from the chain. Total 11 SC.

R2: Single Crochet Back Loop Only (SCBLO). Total 11 SCBLO.

Continue R2 till the circumference is 16″-18″ and it ends with an even row. Join at the beginning with Slip Stitch Crochet. Total 72 SC.

Note: The ribbing stretches by 2″-4″ depends on the crochet hook and yarn and your style.

Chain 1, single crochet around with the same white colour yarn. Total 72 SC.

Edging: on the other side work on Reverse Single Crochet / Crab stitch around.

Body:-

R1: (Change Color Red) Ch 2, Half Double crochet(HDC) across the row.

R2: (Change Color White) Ch 2, HDC on the 3rd loop of the previous stitch. Continue to the end.

R3: (Change Color Red) Ch2, HDC on the 3rd loop of the previous stitch. Continue to the end.

R4-R8: work on Moss Stitch.

After 5 rows of  Moss Stitch¹, I added 3 rows of Half Double Crochet (HDC) where the stitch is worked on the 3rd Loop or hidden loop (knit style) i.e. R1-R3.

Continue the pattern 3 times and sew at the end to create the slouch effect.

[ ¹Moss Stitch: Ch 2, Half Double Crochet Stitch (HDC), Slip Stitch (SL ST). Continue HDC, SL ST alternatively until the end of the row, join at the beginning with SL ST.]

Caution Section:-

  1. The ribbed band size depends on the target age as the circumference is made after sewing the rectangular band.
  2. Also, depending on the yarn thickness and elasticity, and crochet hook the ribbed band will stretch between 1″-3″. 
  3. Make sure the number of rows ends in an even number.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman for Christmas - kNot mY deSigns

Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat

When any kid thinks of Christmas, he thinks of Santa Claus and gifts.There are conflicting stories regarding the origin of Santa’s Costume- the Red robe with white fur border was designed by Coca Cola company.

But why Christmas explains that it was Thomas Nast from Harper’s Weekly Magazine illustration, who designed the costume. “On January 1st, 1881, Harper’s Weekly published Nast’s most famous image of Santa, complete with a big red belly, an arm full of toys and smoking a pipe!” 

In continuation to making presents for my family on the auspicious occasion of Christmas, I decided to treat myself with a white-red colour combination hat. Initially, I thought to make a simple pom-pom Santa-Claus Hat. But then I changed my mind and decided to give it a twist. I can say this is my own pattern. It is a simple easy pattern that anyone can try making for themselves. It can be made of any colour combination you like. You can add either a crochet flower or pom-pom or both as an embellishment. I gave a slouchy effect with a broader edge which can be folded or unfolded and can be used as 2 different hat styles. One you can show-off as a slouchy beanie and another one you can fold around the brim to use as a simple beanie.

Process:

Ribbed Band:-

With white yarn, Chain 16. Back Loop Single crochet for 15 chains. Continue until the band reaches the 22-23″ (i.e. 72 rows). Join the ends. Run one round of single crochet at each single crochet edge of the band with the same yarn. Do not cut the yarn. Attach red yarn and start working on the base.

Note: The ribbing stretches by 2″-4″ depends on the crochet hook and yarn and your style.

Base:-

Double Crochet On every single crochet (72). Repeat this in every row till the hat is 3-4″ or repeat up till 10 rows. Start decreasing 6 stitches evenly till the end round contains 12 DC. This means that

1: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 5th and 6th DC in the row. Total DC left = 60.

2: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 4th and 5th DC in the row. Total DC left = 48.

3: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 3rd and 4th DC in the row. Total DC left = 36.

4: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 2nd and 3rd DC in the row. Total DC left = 24.

5: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 1st and 2nd DC in the row. Total DC left = 12. Sew the ends.

Caution Section:-

  1. The ribbed band size depends on the target age as the circumference is made after sewing the rectangular band.
  2. Also, depending on the yarn thickness and elasticity, and crochet hook the ribbed band will stretch between 1″-3″. 
  3. Make sure the number of rows ends in an even number.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Unisex Crochet Santa Claus's Hat Free Pattern - kNot mY deSigns

Santa Claus’s Hat

Men have a defined sense of fashion and it stays with them throughout and rarely changes. No external factor including women can change this. It could be almost a struggle to bring change in their fashion and make them try out something new. This phenomenon, however, changes in the case of technology. In fact, men would conform to latest updates and gadgets in the market.

Women, on the other hand, embellish their clothing with a lot of addendums like a pom-pom, ruffles, tassels, frills, lace, ribbons, which is seemingly absent in men’s clothing. And I can not disagree further. Any accessory would be a contrast to their masculinity and feel lesser manly.  However, there is an exception to this when it comes to the pompom on the red and white Santa Claus Hat. After all, it’s Christmas Eve!; the festive season, when everyone is anxiously waiting for gifts. Kids are lingering around for Santa to come and hand over their presents, which they have wished for! While everyone is being impish wearing Santa Hat, Elf hat, elf shoes and reindeer horns, men in the family have to join too.

Merry Christmas Everyone! HO! HO! HO!

Process:

The procedure contains Double Crochet (DC), Half Double Crochet (HDC) and a big pom-pom in 3 sections.

  1. Body
  2. Brim
  3. Pompom

Body:-

R1: Started with a magic circle, and 8 Double Crochet stitches (DC).Total 8 DC.

R2: Instead of increasing 2 DC on every DC in next row, I increased by 4 stitches in the 2nd row. *2 DC in next DC, DC in next DC*; repeat *-*. Total 12 DC.

R3: Repeat the row. Total 12 DC.

R4: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 2 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 16 DC.

R5: Repeat R4. Total

R6: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 3 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 20 DC.

R7: Repeat R6. Total

R8: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 4 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 24 DC.

R9: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 5 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 28 DC.

R10: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 6 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 32 DC.

Continue increasing every row by 4 till your hat circumference is 22-23. I have increased gradually till 84 DC.

Note: The total counts should be greater than 60 for an adult hat. It depends on the yarn, chosen crochet hook and your strength applied in each stitch.

R11: Continued 84DC for 8 more rows.

Brim:-

R1: Changed the yarn to white and start creating the brim by using Half Double Crochet (HDC) in each DC.

R2: Continue it till the brim length is 2-3″ i.e. 8-11 HDC.

Finishing: Cut the yarns and sew all the stranded yarns.

Diff Brim Style: Instead of Single Crochet (SC) or HDC, you can go for alternate Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC), Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) to create a ribbed brim. No edging.

Pom-Pom:-

Create a big pompom and attach to the starting row.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 14″
  • Circumference: 23″-24″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use white fur, Crab Stitch or Slip Stitch.
  • The complete Santa hat can be made using DC with the last row of edging.
  • Instead of white yarn, you can use white fur yarn to create the brim.
  • You can insert the Santa Belt in the intersection of red and white yarn.
    • For that reduce the Red yarn rows by 4 and DC across using black yarn. Total 84 Black Yarn DC.
    • Create Santa Belt Buckle and stitch it to the hat.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Home Decor Item - Crochet Christmas Wreath Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Christmas Wreath

Do you wanna build a snowman?
Come on let’s go and play
I never see you anymore
Come out the door
It’s like you’ve gone away…


Winter time and the famous song from FROZEN. All you need is a hot Cocoa and tuck yourself in a warm blanket.

Merry Christmas!!

Christmas is here, and so the time for big holiday plans, decorating the fir-tree, buying gifts,  preparing a long list of wishes for Santa and waiting for the gifts!!!

As a pleasant surprise, my client who had liked my Halloween wreath asked me to make a similar one for the Christmas.

Process:

There are 2-3 DIY activities included here.

  1. crochet leaves.
  2. collect pine cones from the ground.
  3. clean pine cones.
  4. assemble all.

Crochet Leaves:-

I liked the leaf structure designed in MyPicot. Irish Crochet is very intricate and attractive. I used 2 different shades of leaves to give natural look.

Collect Pine Cones from the ground:-

Since Pine trees surround my area, it was in abundance. I collected a few similar sized pines. It was a good hunt walking around the area in search of pinecones!

Clean Pine Cones:-

I cleaned them by using this method.  And bought the wire wreath, two green shades of yarn representing different colours of leaves, pliers and green paddle wire from Jo-Ann. And the ‘Christmas Wreath’ was ready!

Assemble All:-

  • Bought the wire wreath, pliers and green paddle wire from Jo-Ann.
  • Two green shades of yarn representing different colours of leaves.

And the ‘Christmas Wreath’ was ready!

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Wire Wreath Frame size: 12″
  • Christmas leaves length: 5″-6″

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can include some brown leaves too.
  • You can make a snow leaves wreath.
  • Pine cones can be added too.
  • Check out the store for more decoration ornaments.
  • You can use paddle wire to fix your leaves to the wreath frame or sew them from behind.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
