Holiday Light Garland

Holiday Light Garland
– Yarn (green for the strand, and then 4 additional colors for the lights. I used red, orange, yellow, and teal.)
– F/5 3.75mm crochet hook
– tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Make the light bulbs:
Ch 6. Going back up the chain, sc, dc, trc, dc, sc.
Cut yarn and pull through last loop to fasten off.
Make three of these in each color.

Assemble the strand:
With the green yarn, ch 20. Take your first light bulb and single crochet through the top loops together (one stitch).
Ch 20 and repeat the light bulb attachment. Continue to do this until you’ve run out of light bulbs, and ch 20 to finish.
Weave in loose ends.
This version measures about 4.5 feet, but you can make this as long as you want — just keep adding lights! And think of what you’ll save on the electric bill….

  1. I’ve seen other christmas light patterns, but I like these the best. 🙂 They’re delighfully minimalist; while simple to make, it’s immediately obvious what they are. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. I made a strand of these last year for Christmas for friends, and this year I have made each another strand and I’m calling it friendship garland.

  4. I really love these lights. Like the other commenter said, the minimalist design is so nice. They’re the closest design I’ve see that resembles the real thing. I’ve seen some other bulbs that seem too gaudy as they are rather large in size. This pattern is fast and easy to follow especially since I’m a beginner. Thank you for sharing this with us!
