Crochet Christmas Lights Applique – Free Pattern & Video Tutorial

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!

This year, I’m using my crochet Christmas Lights Applique to make some personalized Christmas cards!

  • A small amount of Yarn of Choice
  • Appropriate Hook Size
  • Tapestry Needle


  • A – Color of Your Choice

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.
