Christmas Santa Crochet windspinner free written pattern. An easy to crochet Christmas Decoration. 

crochet windspinner easy quick christmas crochet pattern

This is an easy crochet pattern to crochet a Christmas decoration, and to incorporate a little bit of craft and crochet. 

Add a little bit of Glitter if you wish to add extra sparkle to your Christmas wind spinner. The pattern and photos will help you to create the most adorable Santa Crochet wind spinner.

I will give you a clear and easy-to-understand written crochet pattern. And also included several photos to help you create this beautiful eye-catching Christmas Crochet decoration. 

The original Windspinner crochet pattern was made in the Summer. 

The Crochet BEE Winspinner

Crochet Windspinner BEE Free Crochet Pattern
Crochet BEE windspinner 

I had crocheted a little bee and made the spinner in the same colours, since the Bee wind spinners creation.  

I have been asked to add several more ideas and crochet patterns for creating the crochet wind spinners in several themes.

Crochet Halloween Pumpkin 


And now The Free Crochet Pattern for the Christmas Santa Windspinner. 

This is a fabulous yarn stash-busting project I actually used a little half ball of 100g of yarn and a little pink and white to finish. 

I have used a 3.5omm hook (I DO crochet extremely loosely )

I used a Double Knit weight yarn - See Special Deals on Yarn here at the Knitting Network 

The Windspinner Crochet pattern for THIS wind spinner is made a little bit differently from the original pattern. 


It is made with MORE increases in the rounds than the original.  

Which gives you a tighter Spiral. 

If you prefer a looses spiral make 2Dc in each stitch rather than 3Dc


This is because the wind in winter is WAY stronger (well I say that I live in the North of Scotland)

 I found I needed a much tighter Windspinner to be able to withstand the wind and not sway and much. 

Please NOTE: 

You will always start at the SAME END of the Windspinner this will become the TOP. 

AND you may find as you work your spiral has gone a little wiggly, 

Like This

Do not worry. 

Once finished Start at the TOP and slowly curl and straighten as you go and 

wind the spiral into shape.

TO Start the Windspinner. 


Ch 100 + 1

Row 1: 

Single crochet in 2nd ch from hook and in each chain until end. FASTEN OFF 


Return to the START of Row 1 and Join RED 


Row 2: 

chain2, 3 Double crochet in EACH stitch until you reach the end. FASTEN OFF. 


Return to the START of Row 1 and Join RED 


Row 3: 

chain2, work 3 Double Crochet in EACH stitch until you reach the end. 

FASTEN OFF. 

I like to wind the wind spinner using a knitting needle to hold it in place. This also allows me to paint dome glitter around the edges easily. 

(Just do not let it dry like this remove from the knitting needle immediately and hang to dry!)

The Diamond Shaped SANTA Decoration pattern for the Bottom of your wind spinner. 

I made the Santa decoration 2D  so you could also just make the Santa decoration 

to hang from your tree branches. 


You will increase in the SECOND stitch of each row this makes the diamond shape 

less gappy at the edges when you go to join.

 (Ch3, Slip stitch into the BACK LOOP of the next st) 

Fasten off 

 Join RED (Santas hat )

Row 16: Ch1, Working in the Back loops, SC in each stitch across. TURN (11sts)

Row 28: Ch1,   SC in last st. 

FASTEN OFF 

Make 1 more as above. 

TO give the Diamond a lovely even finish I like to Single crochet around in white 

(at the white and pink) and change to RED for hat part. 

Sc 3 in the TIP of the Hat and Sc3 at the bottom of the beard. 


Leave a long enough piece of each colour to be able to sip stitch join the 2 pieces together later

Fasten off tightly each of the ends ( I just tie tightly and stuff inside when the 2 sides are being joined.)


EYES If you wish to Sew eyes onto the Santa do so now I just used balck yarn. 

JOIN THE Pieces. 

I prefer to use the ends of the final single crochet to Slip stitch to join in the BACK loops of each sides sc, this leaves a lovely even finish around. 

If you prefer to use a tapestry needle and sew the sides together you may find this easier. 

I have used a tiny amount of stuffing just to help shape the piece. 

At Santas Beard I cut several lengths of yarn and Pulled through at the MIDDLE single crochet of the 3sc made in the finishing round.

Best way to Attach a piece to the Spinner to make it a spin. 

The BEST way Up for the spinner is hanging from the start of the rounds you made (THIS IS THE TOP) 

I prefer to use thin thread I can knot at one end to join to the TOP of the spinner. 

and then hang on a hook at the window.
