Crochet Christmas Ornaments - Mini Pom Pom Beanies Free Pattern

Scroll down to get the free Crochet Mini Pom Pom Beanie Christmas ornament pattern.

Last year, I had the pleasure of designing these adorable little crochet Christmas ornaments using Love Crochet's Paintbox Yarns. If you haven't used these yarns before, they are fabulous!

They are only available online and I understand the cautiousness of buying yarn you can't touch.  If I had to compare it to another yarn in stores, I would compare it to Lion Brand Vanna's Choice but perhaps even softer. Plus, they have many beautiful shades of colors! You can check them out here.

For these crochet Christmas ornaments, I wanted to have fun with the color and make brightly colored ornaments. I opted to use two different colors for each beanie and it made it more fun to mix and match all the colors together!


These Christmas ornaments are so easy and quick to make! You will be able to make a handful of these in just one sitting.

Make a few or make a bunch, they make great yarn stash busters and who doesn't love that?!

Although I did hang these on my tree, I think they could be cute little gifts as well to use as keychains. Or you can make a bunch and make them into garland to decorate any room.

Happy Holidays from my family to yours and Happy Crocheting!

Thank you so much for your support! Every single purchase helps me support my small family!

Free Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern

Paintbox Yarns Aran/worsted weight in any color
E/3.50mm hook
1 5/8” Clover Pom-pom maker
Tapestry needle

Patern Notes

Pattern is written in US terms.

Chain 1 in the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch.

One hat will be made with two colors: main color and trim color

3” x 3.5” with pom pom

4 st x 3 rows in half-double crochet


Ch = chain, SC = single crochet, HDC = half-double crochet


Starting with trim color

Row 1: Ch 4, SC in second ch from hook and across, turn

Row 2-24: Ch 1, SC across, turn

Ch 1 and join to Row 1 by slip stitching across to connect both ends to make the trim

Change yarn to main color, ch 1 and SC around the side of the trim, join to first SC (You should get 24 stitches around if you SC into each row of the side of the trim, it’s not detrimental to get this exact number)

Ch 1, HDC around, join to first HDC
Repeat until you have 5 rows of HDC in the main color
Fasten off

Using a tapestry needle, close up the top of the hat by weaving back and forth through the top loops. Pull tight and secure with a knot.

Make a pom pom using a 1 5/8” pom pom maker. Use an additional piece of yarn to secure the center on the opposite side. One piece of yarn will be used to attach to the top of the hat and the other piece to make the loop to hang as decoration.

To make the loop, knot 3-4 times and trim ends to create loop for hanging. For additional security, you can dab a bit of hot glue to the knot.

Use additional yarn tails on other side to attach to top of hat.
