Get ready to sprinkle some handmade joy this holiday season! In this post, I’ll guide you through creating delightful and easy crochet Christmas gifts that your female friends and family will adore.

Ear warmer/headband

Crochet ear warmers are a perfect Christmas gift because it is a fantastic alternative for individuals who dislike wearing traditional hats or beanies. They offer excellent warmth while allowing for a more comfortable and stylish solution for those who prefer to keep their hair up in a ponytail or bun. With their simple design, they are easy to make, making them a quick DIY project that can be completed in as little as an hour, perfect for both beginners and experienced crocheters. Using a yarn with wool content adds an extra layer of warmth, making these ear warmers perfect for colder weather. Their versatility and style appeal to a wide range of tastes, making them a thoughtful and practical present for friends, family, or colleagues during the holiday season.

Any 4-5 size yarn (~50gr)
5 mm hook
Darning needle

Foundation chain: 65.
Row 1: skip first stitch, hdc (half double crochet) 64, chain 1, and turn.
Row 2-10: hdc 64 in back loops only, ch1 and turn.
That’s it! You can close the end regularly to make the band straight. But there is a quick tip to elevate this cute headband. Place the ends as shown in the picture below: fold the ends in half and place them together so that one part hugs another and sew them together like that. Turn it inside out and you have a cute twisted ear warmer/headband.

They are a delightful addition to any hair accessory collection, offering a charming touch to hairstyles. Crochet scrunchies are not only charming but also incredibly versatile, allowing for endless customization options. You can easily create a variety of styles by simply changing the crochet stitch or adjusting the stitch count. This versatility means that each scrunchie can possess its unique look and feel, making it a fun and creative gift idea for Christmas.

Any kind of leftover yarn (from bulky or plush yarn to fingering or baby)
Hook to match the yarn

Working in rounds.
Foundation Round: attach the yarn with a knot to the tie. Work as many sc (single crochet) as possible in your tie as in MR (Magic Ring). Join the beginning with slst (slip stitch).
Round 1: ch2, work 3 dc (double crochet) in each stitch, join with slst. Ch1.
Tip: the more dc you make in one stitch, the bigger ruffle you will get. So you can try different variations of making 2 dc in each st or 4 dc. As well you can do 2 or 3 rounds in total (1 – Foundation Round, 2 – 3dc, 3 – 1 sc in each st or 1 – FR, 2 – 2sc, 3 – 3dc and so on).
