Winter will come shortly! You may need something to warm yourself in the low weather. Besides drinking a cup of tea, you may need something to wear for going out. Do you crochet? Crocheting and knitting are such wonderfully relaxing activities.
DIY 7 Crocheting Ideas For This Coming Winter
Even if you’ve never held a crochet needle, there are so many wonderful things that you can create. They’re all easy and perfect for you if you haven’t been crocheting long, or if you’re like me and find yourself struggling with the task a bit.
1. Crochet Headband
If you want simple steps that look “extra”, this headband is perfect! The stitch on this looks difficult but is honestly one of the easiest beginner stitches to learn. A nice thick headband, it works great for keeping your hair back but also as an ear warmer in winter.
2. Blanket Pattern
This easy crochet blanket is a super-fast pattern for a beginner. Rather than taking days and days to finish, this is ideal for just a few hour’s time. The simple stitch is accented by slightly elevated ripples for a beautiful style that is classic and functional.
3. Warm Mittens
Everyone needs to learn how to make a pair of mittens. This pattern is the easiest one to use! It’s super easy and has multiple size options so you can fit anyone in your home. Bonus? They are much warmer than the ones you would buy in-store.
4. Winter Hat
This is my favorite hat pattern. While it is perfect for winter, a lighter weight yarn makes it great year-round. These are fast to make and ideal for those wanting to crochet and donate to a local shelter or cause.
5. Crochet Ear Warmer
If you are looking for something as basic as the classic dishcloth but also functional for daily wear, this accessory is the solution. A simple crocheted ear warmer is great for winter months but can be used as a headband if desired.
6. Crochet Warmer Neck
Want a warm neck without the ends of a scarf hanging down? Make this pretty and warm cowl. The simple added toggle or button accents really make this beautiful and more than just outerwear. It’s a perfect fashion piece!
7. Crochet Cozy Mug
This is a really easy project for a cute little copy for your morning coffee mug. You could probably adjust the pattern to fit any number of cups or glasses. Knit some of the buttons that hold it all together. These would make wonderful gifts for anyone who really enjoys their morning coffee. You could make a matching set for your own kitchen.
