Well, the winter weather has arrived, at least where I live. It’s not too bad just yet, so don’t mistake my announcement for complaining. But it is definitely time to break out the knit and crochet accessories to keep ears, necks, heads and hands warm this season. If you’re looking for a pattern to make for a gift to give this season or to keep yourself warm this winter, I’ve got a great collection of fashionable knit and crochet accessory patterns for you!

First off, these twisted ear warmers are all the rage this year. Great for keeping your ears warm while not messing up your top knot or ponytail. The River Ear Warmer twisted headband crochet pattern is a great and simple crochet pattern that a beginner could handle. The beauty of these little projects is that they only take a couple of hours and a partial skein of yarn. They make great stash-busting projects!
The Woven Headwarmer crochet pattern has a little more texture and has that lovely bowtie twist to finish it off! Super cute and what a fun pattern to highlight a soft and luscious yarn. If you only have one skein of beautiful and expensive yarn, this is your project. You can make up a few of these with that one gorgeous skein and have gifts for your closest friends!
Buffalo plaid is still super cute and trendy and it’s so super fun to see three colours of yarn come together to form this fun pattern. Don’t you love the large wooden button on this Buffalo Plaid Crochet Cowl Pattern? I love fun finishing touches like that. It makes a piece look so much more professional!
Here’s another gorgeous cowl to try out: the Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern is a textured granny-stitch style cowl that would be a great welcome back to crochet project for those whose grannies taught them the simple granny square and that’s all they really remember. This would also be a great pattern to highlight some special yarn you’ve been saving.
Check out the fringe on this June Berry Cowl crochet pattern… with buttons as well! I love the gorgeous texture on this cowl pattern and fringe is so on-trend right now. It’s a great time to get working on this beautiful scarf, for you or for a friend!
If you’ve always wanted to try cables, the Cascades Big Knit Scarf Pattern is a great first cable project. With bulky yarn and just one big braid cable through the scarf, it’s a great project to practice and learn. Just a tip: if you’re just learning, using a light coloured yarn will help you to more easily see your work and make it easier to fix any mistakes.
If you have a little more experience knitting, you might like to try knitting yourself this Chunky Mittens Knitting Pattern to keep your fingers warm this winter. These chunky mittens look so warm and cozy! My fingerless mittens just aren’t cutting it anymore; I’m going to need to get me some tips!
Ooooh! Or here’s another cute mittens pattern! The Bit of Honey Mittens Knitting Pattern has a sweet honeycomb textured stitch pattern that is subtle and gorgeous! This is a great project to spend a little more time and care with, but has a great finished result!
Update: It looks like this pattern is sold out right now, but the Honey Mitts Knitting Pattern is another pattern that is very close!
Don’t worry: I haven’t left the crocheters’ hands out in the cold. The Cadence Mittens crochet mitten pattern is a lovely textured crochet mitten pattern with a cable-like textured stitch to practice something new for crocheters looking for a little more of a challenge.
Now, THIS is a fun hat pattern! I love seeing the animal print that is making its way into knitwear! Check out this super fun Animal Attraction Leopard Print Pompom Hat knitting pattern! What a fun winter accessory!
And back to plaid. This one is a knitting pattern, though, and only made with 2 colours of yarn. The Super Bulky Buffalo Plaid Hat knitting pattern is a quick knit made with super bulky yarn; don’t you just love it with a big faux fur pom on top?
And while not exactly a wearable accessory, this Textured Christmas Crochet Stocking Pattern is a great project to get working on this time of year. It would make a lovely gift for a friend or loved one! Don’t you just love the beautiful bobble stripes? I love the natural coloured yarn used here, but I think any solid colour would look delightful in this pattern!
So there’s this week’s collection of fabulous patterns to knit and crochet. Making them and wearing them will keep you warm all season! Pick up a pattern today and find some yummy yarns to make one of these patterns. Or pin it for later!
