Free Crochet Christmas Patterns and Ornaments to Make

Free crochet patterns for Christmas are plentiful on the internet, if you know where to look. While Pinterest will give you plenty of eye candy, often the links to patterns are to ones that are being sold.
While there is nothing wrong with having to make a purchase – people should get paid for their work – having a freebie now and then helps the budget. This is because fiber crafts have made such a turn around in popularity since I was young… for the better in my humble opinion. One of the things I like most about making up a few of these is that they will use up my scraps of yarn and the end of my skeins – I hate wasting all of that craft stuff. Plus, who has the room to store it?
