Crochet Up a Plate of Christmas Cookies


Christmas Cookies by Squirrel Picnic Roundup

I love baking Christmas cookies, but I think I love crocheting them even more. With my Christmas cookie patterns you can crochet a whole platter of cookies! Put some out for Santa or hang them on your Christmas tree. Use them as present toppers to add a memorable touch to your gifts. Or make a batch for the kids to play with. I hope you enjoy all of these fun Christmas cookie recipes… er, patterns.

Sugar Cookie with Sprinkles
Using embellishments like beads or embroidery, you can make a variety of cookies from this one pattern.

Candy Cane Sugar Cookie
Modeled after the classic sugar cookie whereby you make two “snakes” and twist them together. This pattern will show you a handy little trick to magically (well, it’s really just physics) keep them entwined.

Frosted Snowflake Sugar Cookie
This cookie is decorated with embroidery to imitate the intricate designs on today’s most popular cookies. Follow the step-by-step slideshow demonstration, and you might find it easier than the real thing!

A Christmas Story Leg Lamp Cookie
Modeled after the iconic leg lamp in the famous Christmas movie, this ornament is a major award!

Chocolate Chip Cookie
Santa Claus’s favorite.

Spritz Wreath
This pattern uses a ribbed detail to give this Scandinavian cookie it’s distinct shape.

Gingerbread Man
The fun is in the decorating!

The pattern for this Italian waffle cookie is worked in two layers to mimic the cookie’s best-known feature.

  1. What a sweet idea! (No pun intended!)

  2. Great idea! I love all of them, but especially the Spritz Wreath. I have to find out, how you made them, so I’m sorry, no more time for a comment 🙂

  3. I have it on good authority that Santa works up quite an appetite. He might actually eat one of them were it left out for him!

  4. I love these! 🙂 I’ll definitely be making some gingerbread men. Thank you so much for the awesome free patterns! ❤


  5. Overwhelmed with cute!!!
