Tis the season to be cold. The temperatures are steadily dropping and that cold winter chill is settling in. In addition to heavy coats, it’s time to grab gloves, mittens and hats before you head out the door. Instead of spending money on poorly made winter wearables, stay home and crochet yourself something fabulous. Most of these patterns are quick to make and easy enough for beginners. Even the more complicated patterns won’t take all season, so you can create your piece and then wear it before the season comes to an end.
You know what else you can do with winter wearables? Give them as holiday gifts! The Christmas season is just around the corner, so you want to make sure you have some quality gifts to give your loved ones. These winter crochet patterns are both cute and practical, so you don’t have to wonder if the recipient will actually use what you give them.
Don’t wait! Every minute you waste NOT crocheting is a minute you’ll spend feeling cold and quite possibly numb out in the cold.
