Wow… is it getting cold fast here in Maryland! I show yarn love all year round but I really want to step up my game for the colder months. Whether I am creating for myself or someone else I want to stay focused by composing all my plans here!
Check out what I will be creating this winter! What will you will be making? How cold does it get where you are from? *_* Links to patterns & tutorials will be posted as I create! Check back for updates.
Leg Warmers/Boot Cuffs – Wow boot cuffs have become really popular! I understand the appeal; they add a pop of color & you can even match it to your other knitted accessories. However, I prefer the length of leg warmers personally – They can still be worn with boots & will keep my legs cozy!
All boot cuff patterns can be made into leg warmers & leg warmers can be shortened for boot cuffs \(^_^)/
2 designs were gifts – the yarn I used matches a beanie I had previously given them 🙂
~Cozy Leg Warmers
Hoods- I don’t always want to wear a hat in the cold so I’m glad making hoods is a piece o’ cake. These patterns are easily adjustable. Use any color yarn & change up the design!
~EWOK (or bear) Hooded Cowl
Hats- Hats are my bread & butter 🙂 Here are a few designs I plan on creating this season…
I really don’t prefer making slouchy hats but I had a few requests from friends/family so I’m going to bust them out. Here are few designs I plan to make for gifts…
~Hat w/ earflaps
Scarfs– I haven’t made these in awhile but I forget how simple & effortless they can be!
~Infinity Scarf/Cowl – I LOVE this pattern for myself – It keeps my neck oh so warm! I unwrap it when I go indoors… And when the weather is particularly frightful I place the sections over my head like a hood, voila!
Making these lovely designs as gifts!
~2-Tone Chevron Scarf – I made this in neutral colors for my Nana 🙂 I think this would look great in a number of designs & colors.
~Lacy Scarf – Finding a pretty color yarn & making this for my mom!
~Pattern Scarf – using a double knitting technique to create a reversible pattern
Shrugs- All right I am most excited to create these this winter! Did you know a simple square of knit/crochet can be created into multiple different shrug designs! This really blows my mind & I am thrilled to try out lots of different ideas… I really need to find some good quality yarn for these projects. What is your favorite yarn to use? Let me know down below, I would LOVE your suggestions!
~Cozy ‘Dancers’ Shrug
~Large Chunky Shrug
Sweaters/Cardigans- I have been reading up & researching all about how to create sweaters and my goal is to at least be able to create a few designs this season. Again I’m not quite sure what yarns to use for these projects Suggestions are appreciated!
~Short & Sweet Cardigan
~Harley Quinn Cardigan
~Off Shoulder Chunky Sweater
Again I will be adding more creations to this list throughout the winter season. I always have so many ideas floating around in my head & this blog post is designed to keep me organized.
