Get Cozy with This Free Knitted Shawl Pattern

We had our first snow this past week. Our cool fall weather dipped below freezing, and we were hit with 6.4″ of heaping snow in one afternoon. With the temperature staying close to the freezing point each day since, that snow is here to stay. Now that winter has finally arrived, it’s time to bust out our favorite seasonal items. We’ll get that fireplace crackling and that hot cocoa made. We’ll bake some delicious cookies and rest on the couch while our favorite winter movies play. For the next few months, we’ll be hibernating indoors, which gives us plenty of time to whip up this fantastic free knitted shawl pattern.

This free knitted shawl pattern is a great project for keeping warm this winter. The yarn is so irresistibly soft and comfortable that you’ll want to drape it around you whenever you can. It’s perfect for reading, watching movies, or curling up with a mug of cocoa on the couch. Even better, this free knitted shawl pattern is easy to make, so you’ll have your new favorite winter craft done up in no time!

There’s just something about a warm scarf on a cold day. Who doesn’t love the warm and cozy feeling you get when you sling one around your neck and head out the door?

Traditional Scarf Knitting Patterns

Just like snow and red noses, a long and chunky scarf is a staple of winter. They never go out of style or lose their luster, making them an essential for anyone’s winter wardrobe. You can make them in a variety of colors and (when possible) use a single skein of yarn. You can even add cool textures and embellishments to make the scarf stand out. The Coconut Milk Scarf is a reader favorite because it can be customized so easily. The loose stitches create wide holes, making it more breathable and less claustrophobic for the wearer. You use one color for the entire piece or add a second color on each end of the scarf. Another fun take on a traditional look is the Chain Stitch Scarf. This scarf is perfect for beginners because you only work up seven rows. This is a great way to practice your stitches and hone your knitting technique. This is a single color project, so you only need two balls of the same kind of yarn. It doesn’t get much better than that (especially if you don’t want to drop money on more yarn).

 

Unexpected Knit Scarf Pattern

What do bacon and potato chips have to do with scarves? A lot, actually! In 12 Knitted Scarf Patterns: Fabulous Free Knitting Patterns for Beginners, you’ll find two potato chip scarf patterns and a Makin’ Bacon Scarf. Unfortunately, neither of these projects is scratch and sniff, though. While the Makin’ Bacon Scarf is meant to look like a strip of bacon, the Artsy Potato Chip Scarf and the Soft and Smoky Potato Chip Scarf actually have nothing to do with your favorite greasy snack. Both have wavy edges and tend to spiral when wrapped around one’s neck. The result is a pretty and dainty accessory that is sure to wow. Other cool and unexpected scarf knitting patterns in the free eBook include the Knit Scarflette and the Two Tone Cowl. If you want to stay warm and stand out from the crowd, you’ve come to the right place. These patterns prove that knit scarf patterns can make a huge impression.

Seeing Spots? Polka Dot Projects Are the Cure!

Polka-Dot-Wine-GlassesI hate to break it to you, but it’s spot season again. I know you just got over that spell of spring fever, but it seems that the next seasonal illness is upon us. If you’ve been seeing spots, don’t fret – Dr. FaveCrafts is on call! She suggests two remedies: get plenty of exercise and excitement by planning a polka dot party, or remain restful and unwind with a few polka dot stitching patterns.

These Polka Dot Wine Glasses that you see on the left might be just the thing to get you inspired this season and chase those summertime blues (a far worse ailment) away for good. If you’re ready to bring your spotted friends into the home, perhaps you would like to try some cute polka dot décor. DIY Dot Pots are an adorable place to put your growing flowers, and they look great indoors or outdoors! If you’re the artsy type (which I know you are), then maybe Polka Dot Wall Art is more your style. It adds a lot of brightness and cheer to a home that’s not quite summer-ready.

 

Polka-Dot-Penant-BannerReady for some company? A Polka Dot Patterns Party is just what you need to celebrate the cheeriness of summer. These decorations will create a fun atmosphere, but don’t be surprised if your guests all go home with a little polka dot fever of their own (it’s contagious)!

Polka Dot Pennant Banner – Save a few bucks on your next party and create this exciting, eye-catching banner.

Polka Dot Tissue Lantern – Paper lanterns create a warm and inviting glow after the sun sets, so make sure your guests are entertained from dawn ’til dusk with this cheery light craft.

Polka Dot Pinwheels – These decorative “toys” are great for parties because they add just the right amount of whimsy, but don’t be surprised if you see your guests plucking them out of the ground to keep for themselves!

How to Make a Polka Dot Crown – Lastly, show your guests who the real polka dot princess is with this fun, easy-to-follow tutorial.

 

aqua-polka-dots-baby-blanketDon’t worry if you’re still not feeling up to a party. Choose a polka dot pattern to knit that will keep you cozy and rested in the comfort of your own home. Settle back with some iced tea, get out your knitting needles, and be thankful it’s not the Chicken Pox.

Polka Dot Frenzy Afghan – Try not to fall in love too quickly with this afghan pattern (it’s addicting!).

Aqua Dots Baby Blanket – If you’re feeling particularly giving, this pattern comes in sizes for all ages!

Yellow Dots Summer Scarf –  This scarf is surprisingly perfect for those cool summer days when you don’t want to catch a chill.

Pretty in Polka Dots Cowl – Add some adorableness to your outfit with this fun polka dot knitting pattern.

One problem? You have to carry around your loot … and it gets heavy! This sturdy and stylish handmade tote will hold all of your fruits and vegetables.

4. Crafts for Cat Lovers

This was our most popular Link Love post and, well, we’re not surprised. Felines had a huge year in 2013 and could be found everywhere! These crafts aren’t just for cat owners, either. The link list included a tutorial for cat slippers, a cat costumer and a cat sleep mask. It’s never been a better time to be a crazy cat lady!

 

3. Knit Family of Hats

For National Craft Month, we introduced readers to this adorable knitting idea from Coats & Clark. It is currently 6 degrees outside our window, so this project is especially relevant. Every member of the family can have his or her own warm and cozy knit hat when you follow this pattern. Luckily, the tutorial is easy to follow and perfect for beginners.

 

2. Tila Temptation Bracelet

The name of this project alone was a huge draw for readers, but the simple yet stunning pattern had everyone hooked.

What was your most memorable craft project from 2013?

Link Love: Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves are really the best kind of winter wearable. They combine ease and warmth, making them  ideal for any environment. There’s no need to whip off your gloves to use your phone or grab money out of your wallet when you’re wearing fingerless gloves! Sure, you can spend a small fortune of a pair of gloves that will inevitably fall apart, but you’d be much better off making your own pair. This is also a great gift idea for anyone with a winter birthday! Who doesn’t like warm hands during the cold winter months?

There are so many ways to create your own fingerless gloves, so whether you sew, crochet or knit, you’re sure to find the perfect project. If you’ve never made a pair, start with our Easy Fingerless Gloves pattern. All you need is some yarn and a crochet hook – it doesn’t get much easier than that! If you don’t have yarn on hand, consider repurposing items you already have. One great example of this is Fingerless Gloves Made From Socks.Yes, you read right – you can make fingerless gloves out of socks (but please do us all a favor and wash them first). Knitters, we haven’t forgotten about you! Our Beginner Montgomery Fingerless Mittens pattern is perfect for anyone who wants to stretch their skills and try something new. And if you’re looking for a belated Christmas gift that you can make in a day, consider creating a pair of Quick Adorable Fingerless Gloves!  The recipient of these gloves will be so appreciative, he or she will forget that you’re giving your gift a little late.

Make it a winter to remember and create a pair of trendy yet versatile fingerless gloves. You might think these projects are complicated, but there are so many easy patterns and fun tutorials to try. See what you can accomplish before the temperatures warm up!

Warm and Toasty Winter Craft Ideas (Plus Coookies!)

This post is brought to you by Mary Egan of CraftFoxes.com.

Now that brisk winter weather is here, you may be feeling a bit of cabin fever from being all cooped up in your house. Why not put a positive spin on all that time you have to spend indoors? With these winter crafting ideas from CraftFoxes, you can spend some snowy days making delicious winter-themed snacks, holiday decorations or winter clothing like sweater knitting patterns and boot cuffs. When it’s blustery outside, snuggle up in a sweater and do some crafting! Here are four ideas from the CraftFoxes website for awesome winter crafts.

Winter Maxi Skirt

When I think of long, flowing maxi skirts, I tend to think of summer outfits. But this winter maxi skirt can be worn with thick tights or leggings underneath for some extra warmth and a fashionable flair. To make this maxi skirt, you’ll need a section of stretch knit fabric about 60 inches wide, as well as other assorted sewing materials. Using your measurements, cut and sew the fabric as directed in this tutorial. This is a great statement piece to have in your wardrobe, and should keep you warm when paired with some tights or leggings. You can make your maxi skirt whichever color you’d like — a frosty, winter blue or some holiday red and green!

 

Snowflake Ornament

Even if it doesn’t snow where you live, the snowflake is often recognized as the quintessential symbol of winter. This embroidered snowflake ornament makes use of the snowflake in a really cute and commemorative way. To make this ornament, which you can hang on a Christmas tree or anywhere in your home during the winter holidays, you’ll need the template from CraftFoxes, an embroidery hoop, fabric, needle and thread, and other sundry materials. In addition to the snowflake, you can also embroider the date on your ornament. It might be a cute idea to embroider one of these ornaments every year, to commemorate your family’s celebration of the holiday season.

 

Knitted Nordic Mittens

When the weather outside is frightful, it’s easiest and most comfortable to just stay indoors. But sometimes you have to leave the house when it’s downright freezing! If you have to go out and brave the cold weather, you might want to take along a pair of these Nordic mittens. To make these knitted Nordic mittens, you’ll need some yarn in red and white (or any colors of your choice), as well as a stitch marker and one set each of sizes 3 and 5 (3.25 and 3.75mm) double-pointed needles. You can follow the knitting pattern on CraftFoxes. This pattern makes mittens for a hand circumference of 7-1/2 inches /19cm, but can be adjusted.

 

Bacon Banana Cookies and Melted Snowman Cookies

These absolutely delicious cookies are the perfect treat for your kids when they get home from school, or when they’ve just started their winter break! How can you go wrong with bacon banana and cinnamon cookies?

For another creative wintertime snack, try out this recipe for melted snowman cookies. The cookies are made from regular, old sugar cookie dough, so you can use any recipe that you have on hand. Then you’ll need lots of icing to add in your melting snowman. You can use a piping bag full of icing or edible icing pens for this step. When you’re finished, you’ll have an adorable, wintery snack!
