Free Palm Sunday Crochet Cross Pattern – My Humble Offering
Today I bring you this humble offering: A crochet palm pattern and a diagram of instructions to fold it so you may create and honor this Palm Sunday.
I hope that you, or whomever you gift it to, are blessed this day and the whole year through!
“And as he rode [into Jerusalem), they spread their garments on the road. As he was now drawing near, at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” (Luke 19:36-38)
The cross made of palms has a meaningful and deep significance for me.
Please take just a moment and read about it at UCatholic Website HERE.

Unfolded Palm: about 1″ wide x 26″ long
Folded Palm: about 4 1/4″ wide x 5 1/2″ tall
With light tan, chain 110:
Round 1: sl st in 2nd chain from hook and nxt 2 chains, sc in nxt 11, hdc in nxt 85, dc in nxt 10 chains, ch 1, sl st twice INTO the post of the last dc just made to “move” across it to the other side of the beginning chain, (**We will now work in the remaining unworked loops of the beginning chain up the opposite side**) sl st into the 1st remaining loop of the beginning chain and ch 1, sc in the same loop and the nxt 93 loops, sl st in the last 14 loops then tie off light tan.
Round 2 (Partial): with right side facing, join green with a sl st in the BACK LOOP ONLY of the 1st sl st made on round 1 (the one made in the 2nd chain from the hook), sl st in each back loop only down this one side of the palm, tie off green.
Weave in ends. Block the palm so it does not curl. I did this by fully wetting the finished palm in regular water. Then, squeeze it dry (do not wring or twist). Pin it out in shape using non rusting pins and a foam mat or even your bed or a towel, whatever works for you.
Using the graphic above, fold the palm into the cross and using a small piece of light tan yarn, secure it with a few stitches through all the layers in the center of the cross.
