It’s beanie weather! Frigid temperatures are hitting everywhere this winter and cozy caps are more essential than ever! I chose this textured beauty of a beanie for a Christmas present and it did not disappoint. It looks intricate and has a lovely detail to it but it is so effortless to make! It works up quickly and easily while maintaining the look of an elaborate design.

This ruana is sincerely impressive in size and also fashion. I love it! I recommend the crochet pattern to anyone who feels confident with post stitches. You’ll get lots of warm, cozy days out with this ruana.
My overall feelings on this pattern are so very positive. It was simple to understand, fun to make, and so lovely to wear! The shape is gorgeous and the stitches add a fun visual pop. Plus I got to try a new stitch and get plenty of practice on it to get better! I would recommend this pattern for sure if you’re comfortable with puff stitches and/or post stitches. Go make one of these in every color!
The Sleepy Collection by KayteDid’s is a great pattern for anyone that loves to make soft stuffies for kids. Whether you are gifting them or selling them, this pattern provides four different animal patterns that are perfect to make for gifts or markets in just a few hours. With the purchase of just this one pattern, you will have directions to make a unicorn, a bear, a dinosaur, or a cow. The pattern modifications to create each animal and to customize your project are really easy to follow, and give you endless possibilities for new toys to make.
Don’t be intimidated by the fur. This little stocking is a great market make and can be made as an ornament or a gift card holder. This is an easy pattern to follow. No one can make just one! Raid your stash and get busy. You’ll love how they turn out!
This crochet pattern is pretty beginner-friendly. It’s a really simple stitch but it helps you practice keeping an even tension so your blanket stays a nice straight-edge rectangle. And working in a super bulky yarn like this can help you finish a project nice and quickly, which makes you feel accomplished!
I absolutely love everything about this Flexagon Amigurumi – it works up really quickly, it uses very few materials, and it makes a wonderful gift for kids and adults! As a math teacher, I also really love that it features little pyramids, because it makes for a great lesson in my classroom and a fun reward for my students!
The long stocking cap pattern was very easy and an excellent beginner pattern. The designer included several helpful hints such as links to videos that explain different stitches and techniques, tips from her own experience, a hat size chart and it includes the option (and pattern) to create elf ears on your hat! I am really pleased with this hat and the ease of the pattern.
This poncho just sang to me from the moment I spotted it. It’s cabled, looks (and is) super cozy, and it just radiates Fall vibes. The pattern is not as scary as it looks either. It’s based on a 6 row repeat throughout, and a great practice project to get comfort with cables as long as you’re comfortable with post stitching.
This design has a lot of options, and I really appreciate it! You can make it long, short, slim or loose. You can add one large tie, a few small ties, or none at all. You can seam the sides up just a tiny bit or halfway or none! You could try this in lighter or thicker yarns if you’re comfortable making up your own sizing.
