Whether you want to knit Christmas decorations for your own home or to give as gifts, these Christmas knitting patterns will allow you to show off your holiday cheer and your favorite craft, in just about every room of your house.

Knit Christmas Stocking

This cute two-color Christmas stocking is a breeze to knit, even if you've never knit a sock before. Worked with bulky yarn on big needles, it will be done and ready for you to embellish in no time.

Cat's Eye Lace Christmas Ornament

Knit a lace sheath to make your basic glass ball Christmas ornaments look a little more interesting or to turn a simple (and inexpensive) store-bought item into a gift-worthy craft.

Christmas Wreath Ornament

This easy ornament is just knit I-cord worked around a craft ring. It knits up in a flash so that you can take your time embellishing it perfectly. Add red yarn or ribbon, jingle bells, buttons, sequins, or anything else you like, and use the project as an ornament or to embellish a gift bag or box.

Christmas Vest Ornament

This quick-to-knit vest is another one that's great for on the tree or on a gift underneath it and it's ripe for personalization, from using the recipient's favorite colors or team colors to adding a monogram. Best yet, it only uses a couple of yards of yarn.

Knit Candy Ornaments

These cute little candy ornaments or bag decorations are a great way to use up tiny bits of stash. Knit in the bigger size, you could actually put candy inside them to decorate an Advent calendar.

Mini Christmas Stocking

Another cute addition to the tree or to a wrapped package, this Mini Stocking Ornament is a lot of fun to knit, a great way to learn about sock knitting and use up some stash. It would make a cute pin, too.

Knit Tinsel

Another I-cord project is this quick to knit tinsel. Made in a sparkly eyelash yarn, it's the perfect way to add a knit embellishment to your holiday tree, staircase or fireplace.

Christmas Tree Pillow

This easy to knit pillow has a simple Christmas tree motif on one side, and plain red and green stripes on the other, so you can use it all winter long without feeling too mired in Christmas decorations.

Snowman Towel

This hand towel has a snowman worked into both sides, which you can embellish with duplicate stitch to make stand out a little more. This is a great Christmas knitting project because it's cute but useful (and machine washable).

Bias Knit Christmas Washcloth

Of course not every holiday project needs to be so literal. Knitting something basic, like a washcloth, in Christmas colors still makes for a fun project for the holidays without adding a Christmas tree or snowman into the mix.
