I love this cabled Alpine Beanie Pattern. It looks knit, but it’s crochet! 

I’ve posted other plaid crocheted hat patterns before, but if you’re a knitter, this Pumpkin Pie Knitting Pattern is a great chunky knit hat for you to practice your plaid.

Check out this awesome diamond embellished Knit Regan Beanie pattern! Also a chunky knit, it would work up quickly! I love the colour choices in this example, too! Which colours would you choose?

Here’s another crocheted pattern, this Crochet Dandelion Slouch Beanie Pattern is worked up with a self-striping yarn, probably with a Caron Cake or something. So cute. I love this colour choice too!

The Toph Slouchy Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern looks almost surreal! As a relatively experienced knitter, I have no idea how I would begin to make this, so I would totally need to buy the pattern! I have about 5 or 6 patterns that I still need to make right now, so I’ll have to put this one on hold for now! Will you make it and show me?

There are so many creative ways to work colour into crocheted hats, like this Speckled Ridge Hat Crochet Pattern. I love the chunky pops of colour. And those yarn pompoms are super easy to make with a pompom maker. I love mine!

I’ve been meaning to learn this woven crochet stitch in this Crochet Hat Pattern! It looks so lovely in this hat! I want one!

Of course, not all of us have time to make it all, but you can still have a handmade Knitted hat with pompom, if you’re willing to part with a little more money! You get the finished work of a skilled craftsperson and none of the work! Sounds like a win to me! With the gift-giving season drawing ever closer, it’s time to get those orders in!

Here’s another great option for the time-crunched, the Ski Bunny Knit Hat. This one is a lovely chunky, cable-knit toque, perfect for the ski hill. How cute will you look skiing this holiday in this gorgeous beanie? 

Pick up a pattern and some yarn today and you might have a hat by tomorrow (if you’re fast)! Or pin it so you don’t forget (or share it with your sister so she can make you one… that’s what my sisters do).

Such a pretty collection of winter hat patterns to knit and crochet (even a couple you can just order if you don't knit or crochet)! #beanie #winterhat #toque #crochet #knit #patterns #yarn #crafts #craftevangelist

Perfect Plaid Patterns!

Are you still in love with plaid? It was super hot last year, but I’m still totally into it! And a bunch of great pattern designers have come up with super inventive and gorgeous plaid crochet patterns for us to make! Check out these great pattern finds!

This Plaid About You beanie featuring a sweet plaid heart is a great handmade gift idea for anyone you love, though, I think it might be better suited to the ladies. (I don’t know what it is with dudes having a problem with wearing hearts.) I love it though. Super adorable.

I guess a more manly option would be this cool Oso Plaid Beanie in the same Etsy shop: Evelyn & Peter. The plaid bear pattern is so cool. And can you believe these are crocheted? They look so good. I love this style of plaid! And the designs in the midst of them? Genius!

While we’re still talking about this designer, we can’t forget one of my favorite designs: The Flannel Forrest Beanie. I’m still just blown away that these hats are crocheted! Have you made one of these gorgeous hats? If you do, let me know! They’re on my list to make. Again with the lovely fur pompoms… so super trendy and adorable. I had to buy myself a bunch last winter. You can get them here if you’re looking for some. Make sure you get the remove-able ones (mine have snaps!) so you can wash your toque (that’s Canadian for winter hat).

You certainly can’t go wrong with checking out the plaid patterns by Whistle & Ivy. They’re super affordable and super adorable, all at the same time! I made this pattern last year and I must say, her instructions are great and the hat looks fantastic, just like these pictures!

And, while I think plaid can definitely be worn year round, but especially in the fall and winter. there’s something about buffalo plaid that’s just a little bit Christmas-y. So, you have plenty of time to crochet up a couple of these adorable Chalet Rustic Pillow Covers to throw on your couch for the upcoming winter season! The deer pattern is just impeccable! What a fun and festive idea!

Grab some supplies!

Pick up one of these great patterns and get crocheting today or pin it for later!

The Tegan Beanie

I know it’s not quite winter hat weather right now. In fact, it was such a long winter that I’m not sure I want to see another toque (that’s Canadian for winter beanie) again! But I couldn’t help but post about this after I stumbled upon this lovely pattern the other day.

*Disclosure: some of the following links are affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Can you believe this is a crochet pattern? I love it! I definitely need to spend some more time crocheting next fall and this one tops my list for lovely colour-work projects for winter!

You can get the pattern for this “The Tegan Beanie” for only $3.33 CAD (today, anyway; the currency-conversion is always shifting, but suffice it to say it’s a reasonably priced pattern!) from Fiber and Fern Designs.

Pin it for later!

Love this CROCHET pattern for a this gorgeous winter beanie (toque) pattern! Winter comes every year. It's never too early to start on next winter's next hat, right?
