I came down with a sinus infection so I couldn’t finish all the winter holiday stuff I was making for the kids at school. However, I did make a list of all the awesome free patterns I came across!
Crochet Cane Hat
This pattern from Sarah at Repeatcrafterme.com is exactly what I wanted in holiday hat. It comes in baby sizes, toddler/child, and teen/adult, I planned to do it in red/green, red/white, gold/white, and purple/white.
*Note: I finished three of these hats and all of them were too big for my kindergartners all the way to fifth grade kids even after I took out one of the increases and made it more like a beanie. The person who wrote the pattern admits that it isn’t tested and that she wants feedback; and there is some feedback in the comments section from crafters who tried the child and adult sizes and adjusted them through various methods. The pattern as is simply works too wide and deep so I’ll I have to do some more finagling to get the right size…
Mrs. Murdocks’s Mittens
Of course I want mittens to go with my hats and scarves! ^_^ (Still working on these. Have you made some yet?) Brought to us by Brenda Anderson over Interweave.com.
Simple Striped Scarf
A scarf pattern from Interweave by Marcy that likely looked wonderful in red and white to get that classic candy cane look!
Holly and Mistletoe
From Little Treasures blog, Maya Kuzman
I thought this might make cute hair bands or shoe ties for boots. Not that we’re trying to attract kisses here! By Maya Kuzman Crochet and Crafts on her blog, Little Treasures.
Rudy the Reindeer Amigurumi
From Tales of Twisted Fibers
So adorable, brought to us for free by Serah at her blog, Tales of Twisted Fibers. I plan to make one for each of Santa’s reindeer.
San Valentine’s Day Hot Chocolate
This is actually a pattern I picked for Valentine’s goodies for my kids at the school but it can easily be modified for a festive winter holiday theme.
I had to include more, for obvious reasons. So enjoy!
Pixie Elf Striped Hat
*Note: Newborn pattern size available for free but larger sizes must be purchased on Craftsy.
