Christmas in July 2020

July is here, and that means it’s time for Grace and Yarn’s 3rd Annual Christmas in July Event! I am super excited that I’m joining with Stephanie this year and together we are bringing you 4 new, fun, and free crochet patterns for Christmas in July 2020! All of which are great for stuffing stockings, decorations, preparing for Fall/Winter craft fairs or getting a head start on your Christmas gift list! We will be sharing one new pattern each Tuesday for the month of July! We hope you join us all month long for this fun Christmas in July event!

Be sure to enter the Christmas in July GIVEAWAY at the end of this post! Three lucky winners will receive PDF copies of all 4 Christmas in July crochet patterns!

When brainstorming these patterns we had many requests for small and quick to make projects. I’m happy to share that each project works up fast and ranges from 4-8 inches tall!

Apart from being on the small side each of these are a great project if you’re new to amigurumi or have been wanting to try it out! We’ll walk you through them with step by step photos and instructions. 

The hardest part will be deciding if you’ll make just one or all four! Below, you can find out all of the details for when each pattern will be posted and the materials needed for each project!

Feel free to PIN THIS POST to come back to it later!

I’ll hyperlink each pattern below as it is released for easy finding!

I’ll include the link to each pattern as they’re posted below. If you’d like to be notified by email feel free to sign up for our newsletter!

If you’d like to be prepared with what materials will be needed for each project I have them listed below. You will also want a pair of scissors, tapestry needle (bent tips work amazing for amigurumi!), stitch markers (a piece of scrap yarn does the trick), and stuffing.

Crochet Penguin Ornament – July 7

These Crochet Penguin Ornaments by Stephanie of Grace and Yarn will be the first pattern to appear in the series on Tuesday July 7th! They were inspired by last years’ Penny the Penguin pattern and use small bits of yarn to help go through those remnants we all have on hand. While she used the traditional black and white combo, they would be super cute in an array of colors!

Materials you will need:
  • Size 4 worsted weight yarn (small amounts of black, white, yellow and pink/blue for the cheeks/bows) 
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook 
  • 9mm safety eyes 
  • Black crochet/embroidery thread for eyelashes/eyebrows

Mini Angel Amigurumi – July 14

This Mini Angel Amigurumi is a much smaller version of my Angelica the Angel Amigurumi crochet pattern released on the blog last year. This little angel is the perfect size for a holiday ornament, stocking stuffer, or gift for someone special. Using white and silver, she makes a beautiful angel, but if you change the colors or leave off the halo and/or wings, she also makes a really sweet mini fairy or princess! Plus, the pattern comes with two different hair options (a bob and a bun)!

Materials you will need:
  • Size 4 worsted weight yarn (white for the dress, skin color or your choice, grey/silver for the belt, wings, and halo, plus a little bit of pink for the smile). I used Caron Simply Soft yarn for this project.
  • 3.25 mm crochet hook 
  • 6mm safety eyes 
  • Black crochet/embroidery thread for eyelashes

Crochet Polar Bear – July 21

Peter the Polar Bear is ready for Christmas with his striped sweater and red hat! His body and head are made in one piece for a quick make. He’s perfect as a gift or to add to your decor this Winter. Mix up the colors for a fun black bear, brown bear, or panda!

Materials you will need:
  • Size 4 worsted weight yarn (white for the dress, skin color or your choice, grey/silver for the belt, wings, and halo, plus a little bit of pink for the smile).
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook 
  • 6mm safety eyes 
  • Black crochet/embroidery thread for eyelashes

Mini Bears in Stockings – July 28

These Mini Bears are all snuggled up in their own little stockings! They are only about 5 inches tall, making them the perfect size to work up quickly with only a little bit of yarn, plus they make great ornaments, stocking stuffers, and gifts! I know little ones will especially love holding the tiny bears and putting them in and out of the stockings.

Materials you will need:

Well, are you getting excited yet?! I know I am! I’d love to know which pattern you plan to make! Feel free to leave a comment below or join the conversations in our groups on Facebook below!
