Hi friends, hope the holiday season is treating you well!
I’ve been wanting to put together a round-up post for a while now, and I’m finally getting around to it. I’ve been super busy with the Fair Isle Beanie Crochet-A-Long. It’s my first crochet along and I absolutely love it, so keep and eye out for more – or better yet – join our CAL group!
In the meantime, I’ve put together some great cold weather patterns to make during these cold winter months. Some are so easy, you may even get to create a few for gift giving!
Let’s get to it!
Here are 20 great crochet patterns to get your fingers tingling and wrapped around those crochet hooks.
