Crochet Garland Pattern

Please keep in mind that these free crochet ornament patterns are for personal use only. We hope that you will enjoy and share these DIY crochet Christmas ornaments with friends and family!

How to create crochet christmas ornaments:

The most challenging part of the process for me was actually finding a way to photograph the garland for this post! It’s hard to fit all of the fun shapes, colors and designs into one photograph. I made three different patterns, one for each of the ornaments. 

There are so many fun ways to use these ornaments! You could make a few and hang them from your holiday tree or add one to a special holiday packaged, tied up with a bit of bakers twine!

Teardrop Round 2

Crochet Garland Blog Hop

Teardrop Round 3 – start of dc/tc/dc to create “tear drop” shape.

Finished teardrop.

Using a yarn needle and some extra thread, I added a cross to the front of each ornament to give it a unique, finished look.

Finally, finish off the ornaments by taking the long tail end of yarn and creating a hanging loop or using a length of yarn to stitch them together into a garland for hanging.

I just love your garland Heather!! Those retro ornaments are so great! Thanks so much for being a part of the hop!

Love the garland, can’t wait to make it! :D

I tend to crochet what inspires me – it’s never the same every year. I made garlands one year, scarves another and even hats.

Loving those Retro Ornaments!!

This is so beautiful!!

Hi! Absolutely love these. I have a question about the oval one. You said to chain 13 and then beginning in the 2nd chain from the hook to follow the sequence of stitches. But you are left with 2 chains if you follow this. Is there a mistake or am I missing something? Thanks!!!

Hi! Love these. Can you explain more about how to do the cross on the front? It looks simple but just wondering how you did it. Thanks.

I realise this post is quite old so I’m not sure anyone will actually see this comment. I’m throughly confused with the teardrop ornament pattern. I’ve crocheted it three different ways (interpreting the pattern three completely different ways) and still haven’t been able to come up with a shape that works. I am not a new crocheter so feel quite embarrassed to be stuck on what should be an easy pattern. any help would be appreciated. thank you!

I couldn’t get it to work either. So confused about the numbers in parentheses.

Hi there!
I love your garland and would love to make it for Christmas this year. I’m having trouble with the tear drop ornament though, are you able to provide further more detailed instructions?
Thanks so much!

Anyone get an answer? I realize this is an old post but I really want to make this garland and cannot for the life of my make the teardrop ornament. Anyone figure it out?

I actually came to the comments for this exact reason. But it’s been a while so I’m guessing no update..

I love this garland but the directions for the year drop ornament are really throwing me for a loop. My “finished” tear drop looks too similar to the oval one and doesn’t resemble the picture at all. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Please help, Heather!

This is just stunning! I love the colors you chose and how all the shapes look together. Lovely job and thank you for the tutorial! :) Lisa

Oy vey! I’ve tried the tear drop over and over – and simply cannot get it to look remotely like yours. It looks quite like the oval. I’m not sure what I’ve done wrong, and I’m so disappointed as I absolutely love the design!! Holidays are here and I’m last minute decorating – this was simply perfect for my mantle. Any help would be super appreciated!

Did anyone get an answer for the teardrop instructions? It has me baffled.

Love these! But I am also super confused by the teardrop pattern… any suggestions on what I could be doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.. :)

Hello! I was wondering about the oval Christmas ornament. I’ve tried doing it several times, but I don’t seem to get the same bends on the side and I have almost no curve on the second side. I was wondering if I was doing anything wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In the tear drop ornament, I had a very hard time understanding round 3’s instructions. It only has the first part on the row from what I could see. Plus there’s some instructions in round 2 that is very confusing. I had to enlarge the picture to see the stitches to finish it.
