Christmas pudding crochet pattern

Thanks for checking out my Christmas pudding crochet pattern. I love Christmas pudding and I love crochet! So I combined the two together and this is what I come up with. I’m going to be making a few of these little puddings to decorate my Christmas tree this year and I’m also going to glue some to handmade Christmas cards. I’d love to see what you do with yours. Be sure to tag me if you share your make online (links above)

Christmas pudding description

This Christmas pudding crochet pattern has many uses. When assembled it’s quite stiff so as well as an appliqué you could use it alone as a brooch, fridge magnet, Christmas tree decoration, Christmas card topper…. the list is endless! Alternatively the appliqués can be sewn onto almost any of your crochet creations to make them look festive.

How it’s made

To make to Christmas pudding I used DK (weight 3) yarn in 4 colours. I chose to use traditional brown, cream, green and red. The appliqué measures between 5.5/6.5cm depending one your hook size. Using a 3mm crochet hook will give you a 5.5cm pudding, additionally using a 4mm crochet hook will give you a 6.5cm Christmas pudding. The crochet pattern is easy to make. That being said you will need to know how to start with a magic ring. You’ll also need to know how to increase along with basic crochet stitches. The pudding is made in 3 parts and they will need to be sewn together so you will need a very basic knowledge of sewing to complete the pattern.

Gauge / Tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. If your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

3mm hook – 2” x 2” = 12 rows of x 13 sc

4mm hook – 2” x 2” square = 10 rows of 9 sc

Crochet pattern notes

I do not count chains in my stitch count.

Numbers in brackets are the number of rounds/stitches.

Stitches separated with a comma are to made in separate spaces eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch.
