The Twist Headband -free crochet pattern-

Image
Although I love a great winter hat to keep me warm and stylish during the cold winter months, sometimes, you just want to wear a ponytail!  On those days I like to wear a warm headband instead, so that's my main reason for a headband. However, crochet headbands look fabulous with any style of hair, and this one is perfectly fashionable and simple. The twist headband uses basic crochet stitches with an interesting (and cute) twist! (note: you will need some sewing skills)

Plaid Slouch Hat -free crochet pattern-

Image
Ah, I love this hat!  I love when I think I've seen everything, and then something like this comes along and proves me wrong. Plaid has been around forever (thanks to the Scots!), it comes and goes in fashion, yet it remains a timeless piece to any wardrobe. This hat pattern implements plaid, by using tapestry crochet, carrying the unused colors behind the worked colors. It's a great beginner tapestry pattern because the blocks of color are even. I can't wait to make one!

Dragon Scale Armour Boot Cuffs -free crochet pattern-

Image
If you still haven't learned how to make the crocodile stitch, now's a great time!  I've been making these for a holiday craft show coming up soon, so by now I have the pattern memorized. However, I'd love to share it with you, because it's quick and pretty easy; don't let those complicated looking stitches scare you away. Once you learn the crocodile stitch, you'll be designing your own patterns! (btw, the crocodile stitch makes a great mitten or glove cuff!)  I only included one size for these cuffs, however they do stretch quite a bit, but if you'd like them smaller or larger, you may adjust your hook size. So here's my pattern, enjoy!

Peppermint Kisses Beanie -free crochet pattern-

Image
Everyone needs a cute winter hat, and although this particular hat shown definitely has a Christmas vibe happening, you can make this in any color combination and it would look fabulous!  But I like the red and white!  It has a 'not so in your face' holiday charm. The pom pom adds traditional winter hat style.

Hip Cozy -free crochet pattern-

Image
For something so simple, I've taken a liking to this cute crochet hip cozy. It's like a mini skirt that simply wraps around your hips with a button closure. I think this would look really cute over tights. You could also even wear it as a cowl or cape! The pattern writing is a bit quirky, but by doing a quick read through first, you will easily get an idea for what's going on.

Nordic Super Scarf -free crochet pattern-

Wow! Just wow!  This crochet super scarf pattern is definitely not for a newbie crocheter, but if you already have some skill, or are willing to learn something new, then this absolutely stunning crochet pattern is for you!  By using graphs and the corner to corner crochet technique, you work up this pattern from the top down, working diagonally. The end result... something amazing!
