Crochet Christmas Garland

Crochet Garlands are fun to see hanging amongst your home decor and even more fun to make! This Crochet Christmas Garland is easy to crochet and has a unique Celtic flair with the Celtic Knots making up each tree motif. Since this is a decoration and probably will not be washed often, you can even use hot glue to join the knots and the trees to the garland length making this also a quick project!

Celtic Christmas Ornament

One of the Celtic tree motifs from this crochet Christmas garland would make a perfect crochet Christmas ornament! I love to give ornaments as gifts especially one as unique as this one. A single tree motif could also be added to a wrapped gift where you placed the gift tag or ribbon. I think it would also look nice to applique a motif onto a reusable shopping bag or plain scarf. So, even though the project is intended to be a crochet Christmas Garland there are many other easy variations you can make with it!

Stitches Used in this Crochet Christmas Garland

I rated this pattern as “Easy” because it uses only basic crochet stitches and a very simple knot weaving design. To make this crochet Christmas Garland you will need to know these stitches: chain, single crochet, slip stitch, half double crochet, and double crochet. Inside the pattern I also provide a few links to some short video tutorials to help you with some of the stitches. I think you will be pleased to see how quickly the crocheted cords come together to form the Celtic Christmas Tree motifs.

With the downloadable pattern you will get an actual size color-coded Celtic Knot diagram that will help you weave the Celtic Knot. And NEW! to this pattern is a separate diagram just for Left-Handers! You’ll see it as an additional PDF when you download the pattern. This will help all left-handers weave the knot in the opposite direction – no more guessing or trying to flip things around in your head. I’ve already done the work for you. 🙂

The 10-page instructions are in a large clear font and include several color photos to help you be successful with this crochet pattern.

Crochet Christmas Garland supplies - green yarn, red yarn, crochet hook, stitch markers, sequins, tapestry needle


This crochet pattern uses a small amount of Size 3 yarn. I crocheted with Sinfonia by Omega in 2 shades of green. Then I used some metallic red cotton crochet thread to make the star. If you look closely, I added some red sequins to each star and even used some hot glue to join everything together – that makes the project work up even faster!

If you can’t find the exact yarn I used, I recommend a cotton DK weight yarn. This cotton yarn is a little thinner than the traditional dishcloth cotton yarn that many craft stores carry. (You can use the dishcloth cotton but it will change the overall look of your tree motifs and may make the knot harder to weave into place). One yarn option you could try is the Yarn Bee I Love This Cotton yarn (by Hobby Lobby)- comes in great colors and is a good thickness.

    1. You can use Size 4 cotton if it is a thin Size 4. I am not sure if the cords will still make a complete tree using the larger yarn. Sometimes cotton yarn is marked as “size 4” but it really is the same thickness as a DK weight/size 3 yarn. You could try it and see. You could also try using a smaller hook than you would usually with the Size 4 yarn. Hope these suggestions help. Do you know the name/manufacturer of the yarn you are thinking of using?

  1. Oh wow, this looks great! Had to order it right away. I have places in my dining room that it will go nice. Thank you so much. Will have to send pictures as soon as I get it done. Might be in next Christmases picture but it will get done.

    Thanks again,

    1. Thank you for your comment and purchase! I hope you enjoy making this and having it be a part of your Christmas decor/photo 🙂 I would LOVE to see a photo of your project. Happy creating! Jennifer
