I love crafts and DIY. Hobbies help me unwind, give me something to focus on when I’m depressed, and give me a sense of satisfaction at having accomplished something with my own two hands. I’ve enjoyed scrapooking, making cards, knitting, jewelry making and bead work, and sewing. With the colder weather, I’ve been working on projects to keep myself warm. Today I would like to share some of my favorite crochet projects from around the web, along with pictures of my finished projects.
You can find the pattern for these socks here. I added three rows of crocodile stitch to the top. I love to wear these with boots. My feet are perpetually cold in winter. With these socks they are so warm and cozy. This pattern would also be pretty in a variegated yarn.
I love how that rhymes! Find the pattern here. The great thing about this pattern is how versatile it is. It works up quickly, too. I think it took me about 2 hours to finish this one. You could add a crochet flower to make it a little more feminine, something like this.
Fingerless Iron Man Gloves
These have got to be the coolest pair of gloves ever! The pattern is here. The website also includes a free printable version of the pattern. Iron Man is my husband’s favorite Avenger, so I knew as soon as I saw it I would have to try out this pattern. This isn’t the best picture, but they turned out awesome.
Crocodile Stitch Fingerless Gloves
The pattern I used is no longer available for free, but this one is pretty similar. I LOVE these gloves. It did take a few tries to get the hang of the crocodile stitch, but the results are worth it.
Crochet Ruffle Scarf
What winter project list would be complete without a scarf? I love the ruffle scarves that have become popular in recent years, but the special yarn is a bit pricey. I came across this pattern that uses regular yarn, and was very pleased with the results.Looking for a great wintertime crochet project?Click To Tweet
My current project is a blanket made from African flower hexagons. It’s a great project for using up those last little bits of leftover yarn. It’s going to take a while, though. I need about 200 hexagons. I’ll share more as I make more progress on it. What are your favorite winter crochet projects? Let me know in the comments below! Then read about more DIYs:
