Even though I’m not quite finished up the knitting & crochet projects that I have planned for Christmas gifts (I still have 10 DAYS, people. Don’t judge me), I have already begun to think about a more involved project for the Christmas break. I am fortunate enough to work for an organization where I get the days between Christmas and New Years off, and it is quite lovely. So during that time, I often embark on a more involved project, which involves sitting on the couch for days at a time, getting up only to replenish my coffee (& Baileys). Which one should I make this year?

I hadn’t seen this lovely cocoon-style cardigan, the Inmost Cardigan crochet pattern when I was looking at cocoon cardigans a little while ago. I love the
I’m a huge fan of All About Ami! She has the most gorgeous photos of her knit and crochet work! The Midtown Cardigan Knitting Pattern is a lovely casual cardigan; it looks so
Or maybe I should work on a classic sweater for myself. I have an idea for a sweater that I can’t seem to find anywhere else but I think this
Rainbow Trail pullover knitting pattern might give me a good base for where to start. I’ve knit myself cardigans and shrugs, but never a pullover. Also, I love stripes.
If I were to make this Crochet Poncho Pattern, I would have to make it in a different colour, because it is nearly identical to a store-bought knit poncho that I already own. It is pretty and simple and crochet!
Blankets also make lovely more involved projectst. The Makawee Blanket crochet pattern looks like it would be great to snuggle under by the fire while you work on it. So cosy.
I’m not sure I’m going to get to these before Christmas, but I know my husband would love a pair of these Adidas Inspired Sneakers for Men.
Or maybe I should finally conquer the sock? I’ve knit stockings. That’s like turning a heel, right? Is that the hard part? Anyway, this Bywater Striped Sock Knitting Pattern looks like a straight-forward and simple knit sock pattern, which seems like exactly where I’d like to start.
Or I could work on a more involved amigurumi like this Garik the Pug crochet pattern. Isn’t he cute?
I know I’m not going to get to these Hamilton Amigurumi Patterns before Christmas time, but I know one thirteen
Or possibly, I’ll take on a whole new craft. I have done a little bit of embroidery before, but mostly in junior high home ec class. This Blossoming Garden Embroidery Kit is gorgeous and would make a lovely little piece of decor for spring. It’s just around the corner, right?
So, what are your plans over the Christmas break? Do you get some extra time off to hang out with your family or to make some crafts? What would you make for a winter break project?
