These tiny crochet Christmas Lights Appliques are a cute idea to decorate for the Holidays!
I first used them to decorate one of my granny squares from the Christmas Granny Square Collection.
But I can imagine that these little Christmas lights would look great on a Christmas scarf for children, or on a hat too! Of course, you can also have fun making small things, such as magnets for the fridge, garlands for the Holidays, and much more!

I’ve already prepared a few cards using all sorts of Christmas appliques and in the coming months, I will be sharing the free patterns here on the blog.
But in the meantime, you can already get ahead on your Holiday makes and get all 12 small Christmas Appliques patterns in one compact and printer-friendly bundled!

Christmas Lights Applique Video Tutorial
- A small amount of Yarn of Choice
- Appropriate Hook Size
- Tapestry Needle
- A – Color of Your Choice
- B – Grey or Black
With Sport (2, Fine) weight yarn (I used Schachenmayr Catania) and a 2.5-mm (C/2 US, 12 UK) hook, each light will be approximately 0.6″ (1.5 cm) by 0.9″ (2.3 cm).
This pattern is too small to accurately determine the gauge. Just keep in mind that the final size will depend on the yarn and hook you use.
