Crochet Christmas present ornament


This crochet Christmas present ornament is super cute and super easy to make. A nice present in any color you like with a bow in a contrasting color. The pattern is free with written instructions, diagrams and a YouTube video tutorial.


It uses only basic stitches and the pattern is adjustable to what you need. The color combination is up to you. I chose red and gold, because this year I want more handmade, DIY ornaments on my Christmas tree.

The patters is SUPER EASY because it only uses chain stitches and single crochet stitches. It is also adjustable. I you want bigger present just make the base (row 0) longer - make more chains. If you want it smaller then you make less rows.

Size: With my 3mm crochet hook and a base of 10 chain stitches the finished Christmas present ornament is 5x5 cm (2x2 inc) big or small. It also doesn't have to be a perfect square. If can be taller or shorter. Mix and match I would say.


Materials needed for the project:

  • crochet hook (3mm)
  • yarn (appropriate size for the crochet hook)
  • scissors
  • needle

The stitches used in this pattern are:

  • magic ring
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain stitch
  • sc – single crochet stitch


  • Row 0: ch 10
  • Row 1 - Row 10: ch1, 10sc

The diagram for the present base:


When you make the first square finish it off. With the second square you do not cut the yarn but you continue with joining the two squares and make a loop on top.

While joining the squares in each row or/and stitch you make a single crochet stitch, except in the corners where you make 2 single crochet stitches.

The BOW pattern:

  • magic ring
  • ch3, 3dc, ch2, sl st in the magic ring,
  • ch3, 3dc, ch2, sl st in the magic ring 
  • close the magic ring and with the end tail loop around the center to close any gaps.
