Crochet Patterns to Make Your Own Custom Mantel Decor

I have a confession to make: I’m not particularly skilled at decor. I value utility. Don’t get me wrong, I love pretty things, I appreciate a beautiful space and styled things, but ultimately, I live here and we’ve got a lot of stuff that needs homes. I have a hard time devoting a lot of shelf space to knick knacks. But I have 2 mantels in my house now and both of them are only half styled. So, I’m going to take it slow and start thinking through more of what we put on those mantels. Today, I’m thinking about the mantel in the family room, which sits about 12 inches below the television and is only about 5 inches deep. I know there are guidelines about height and depth and I feel like it’s pretty hard to obey those rules when I don’t have much room for either. Nearly everything I currently have on there is about the same height, so I think I need some shorter things. This is what is looks like now (and yes, soccer is often playing at our house, even if no one is there watching it):

So, I like all these little quirky elements that are here, but they don’t seem properly styled or connected. So, I think it might need some things and it might need some things taken away. I’m going to start experimenting. And making. I’m thinking about some of the following patterns as options for things I can add to the mantel to add some texture and cohesiveness. (Though, I might just have to invite my sister over for a styling session). Anyway, maybe you’re looking for some handmade decor styling items (aka knick knacks), check out these patterns and tell me which one(s) you’re thinking of making (or which ones I should add to my mantel).

Ok, this is where I’m leaning right now. Strings of wooden beads have been pretty popular in home decor for the last little while. Probably they’re on their way out, but it’s not like I’ve ever been on the cutting edge of home decor anyway, so it will be new to me! Also, these wouldn’t be wooden beads, they would be strings of crocheted beads! It’s a spin, which makes it relevant again. Regardless of whether you’re looking to make little crocheted balls for home decor or for a baby toy, this Bead Crochet Pattern in 5 Sizes from My Dear Knot is a great pattern to work with!

This is another great contender! I love this Crochet Light Ball crochet pattern from Made by Catarina idea, with the lacy crochet ball filled with little mini lights. Such a fun idea! What do you think?

Ok, I already have a fake plant on the mantel and a real plant (in that super cute cat planter), but I have once before had a real string of pearls plant that I killed, so I’m not sure if I can keep one alive, especially not in this spot. This room sees a fair bit traffic and no one is super careful in my house. I would be super bummed if I managed to keep a string of pearls plant alive and then one of my family members knocked it to the floor. But… a crocheted plant made from this super cute Pointy Leaf Vine Crochet Pattern from Keeleys Crochet might be just the ticket!

Ooooh or I could crochet around a jar with this Crocheted Jar Cover Pattern from ellina and make that into a candle holder or put a little string of battery operated lights in there. I do have a strange hoarding tendency towards jars, so if I could put some to use like this, that would be wonderful! To be clear, I use a lot of them for other useful purposes as well, but I do have a hard time throwing out a good jar! Perhaps I will make a goal of giving gifts in jars for Christmas this year!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

Ok, again, I know I already have plants on there, but what if what it needs–stay with me here–is MORE plants?! I know right? I think it could be what’s missing. Especially if it meant having one of these super fun Air Plant Crocheted Planters made with the pattern by Cosmonaut Llama! Right? That is so fun. I think I need to make one of these.

Ok, look at this. We’re getting closer here… jars, crochet, plants… all in one pattern! This Crochet Mason Jar Sweater Sleeve Candle Plant Cozy Pattern from Deni Made Designs is just the thing. Ticks all the boxes. More plants… more jars. This is a great option.

I also quite like this Farmhouse Candle Cozy Crochet Pattern from Through the Loop YC. It could probably still be used to cover some jars, but I must say it looks pretty sweet on this collection of 3 matching candles.

I just love amigurumi; I’m not sure the family room is where I want to put an anthropomorphic stuffed plant, but it does check the plant box! And it’s little! You can’t find a real Sansevieria plant this small! This delightful Snake Plant Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Knot Monster sits only 16 cm tall when finished, so it could be just right for my mantel!

Ok, so while not strictly something I would make for the top of my mantel, this Crochet Daisy Garland with Leaves Pattern from Krafty Home Studio could be hung from the bottom of my mantel. It doesn’t really solve my mantel decoration “problem” but I stumbled upon it in my search and I just loved it, so I wanted to share it with all of your

Alright, looking at the dimensions of the Crochet Tray Basket Pattern from The Cozy Knot Crochet displayed here, I’m not sure this exact item would fit on my mantel, but hear me out… perhaps I could make it in a size that would fit on my mantel? What do you think? I’m pretty sure I could figure out resizing it. Also, I didn’t even realize it at first but this pattern also comes with a matching vase cozy! Sweet!

Alright, I know that these vintage patterns are distinctly Christmassy and well, kind of old-lady-ish, but maybe one of the little houses could work? It’s a vintage crochet pattern from Past Pattern Palooza Co and it’s prety inexpensive, so perhaps I could experiment, maybe in a not-white crochet cotton? And get something that could work on my mantel? What do you think?

Ok, back to the balls. See? Like this? In different sizes, or perhaps a string of the same sizes. These Large Size Crochet Balls (there are other sizes, too) from Dalecrest Designs are actually a finished item made of cotton macrame cord and styrofoam balls. I have made similar ones as baubles for my Christmas tree using Bernat Home Decor Yarn. If you don’t crochet or you don’t have the time or materials to make them yourself, these are a great option!

Well, I’m looking forward to some of your feedback about what I should make to put on my mantel. And maybe once I’ve made some shorter little trinkets, perhaps my sister will still come over and help me make it pretty. Grab one of these patterns or pin it for later!

Creepy Crafty Wednesday Inspired Patterns

I know I’m a little late to the party on this one, but I just started watching Wednesday on Netflix. It’s a show my husband doesn’t want to watch, which means it will probably last me months because I don’t take a lot of time to watch TV by myself. It’s a pretty fun show, craft-wise because Wednesday wears a lot of knits (and crocheted items!). So, of course, the fibre community has come out with some patterns so that fans can make some Wednesday-inspired items. Check out the patterns below if you want to make some!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

I was very surprised that there weren’t any knitting patterns that I could find for this black and white checked vest, since the original from the show is definitely a knit vest. The crochet pattern designers have not left us wanting though. If you crochet, you can make this Wednesday Vest Crochet Pattern from Hooked By Kimi.

While this Classic V-Neck Vest Knitting Pattern from Well Loved Knits is not explicitly Wednesday-inspired, making it a little oversized with a few more rows of ribbing at the end, would make it very similar to the original knit version that Wednesday wears in the series.

The vest that’s very similar (but different) in the series IS crocheted, so if you want to make yourself one, The Wednesday Vest Crochet Pattern from High Level Bandanas is for you.

I don’t know if I haven’t watched this episode yet, but the Wednesday White Collar Crochet Pattern from Lito Magic Crochet includes an image of the actress from Wednesday wearing a crocheted white collar like this one! It’s such a fun way to add a touch of crochet to your wardrobe!

There are A LOT of Wednesday Addams Amigurumi patterns to choose from, but this Wednesday Addams Doll + Party Dress Crochet Pattern from Lort Hobby was such a delightful and beautiful doll pattern! The dress is so fun and all of the details on this doll are just perfect!

Of course, what would Wednesday be without Thing? Make your own creepy Thing the hand crochet with this pattern from Lito Magic Crochet, complete with stitches and fingernails! What a fun and creepy crochet pattern!

An iconic image in Wednesday is the Ophelia Hall window. You can make this Ophelia Round Bag Crochet Pattern from Nine Inspired to show off your love for Wednesday with this functional cross-body purse crochet pattern!

Like I said, there are lots of Wednesday inspired amigurumi patterns, some of them are really quite creepy, but if you’re not feeling especially spooky, then the Spooky & Cheerful Girls Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Medaami Patterns is super cute and would make fun little gifts for a Wednesday inspired kid.

Enid’s Snood Crochet Pattern from The Loopy Lamb

If I’m honest, I was probably much more of an Enid kind of kid than a Wednesday kind of kid. I would have like this Easy Enid-Style Sweater Knitting Pattern from Candy Yarn Shop with its soft pastel fades and cheery style.

I really love Enid’s character in Wednesday, how she is developing into her own person and accepting herself for who she is. Celebrate your own unique style with this Enid Crochet Doll Pattern from Cinnamon Doll Crochet. Even if the world is a dark and creepy place sometime, you can still be a pastel ray of rainbow light in a world full of misfits!

I hope you found some fun Wednesday-inspired crochet and knitting patterns to celebrate your love for this creepy series. Grab one today or pin it for later!

Check out this collection of fantastic Wednesday-inspired knit and crochet patterns, perfect gifts for Wednesday fans! #KnittingPatterns #CrochetPatterns #Yarn #Crafts #WednesdayAddams #CraftEvangelist #PatternRoundUp

Lunar New Year – Year of the Bunny… Amigurumi

I really hope that’s the case because so far 2023 has been a pretty tough one for us. So… hope it is!

Crochet Them All: Pokemon! Stuffies to Make

Ok, so for me, this is panic time. It always seems like there’s plenty of time before Christmas until suddenly there’s not and I have no good ideas and the ideas I have had suddenly seem silly and I planned to make a bunch of things for people that I just haven’t done yet. Here’s where the last minute gifts come in. Some of my favourite last minute gifts for kids and adults alike are amigurumi. (Make it extra small and put it on a keychain!) And kids are still into Pokemon (I guess: my kids seem to go in and out of Pokemon). So here’s a collection of some quick (and a couple not-so-quick) Pokemon amigurumi if you’re looking for a delightful handmade gift idea for someone who loves Pokemon.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

You can crochet your own Bulbasaur with this intermediate crochet pattern from Shea Crochet. 14 pages of step-by-step instructions to make your own Bulbasaur, with numerous photos to help you with sewing and details! If you make this little guy with worsted weight yarn (as the pattern calls for), you will end up with a toy that is 8 inches tall, 5 inches wide and 8.5 inches long.

Here’s a super quick one for you! This Pokeball crochet pattern from lulus little shop can be made up quickly and would make the perfect little decoration to wrapping or accompaniment to a crisp $20 bill! Made with worsted yarn, it will be about 2.25″ in diameter, but make it in a smaller yarn with a smaller hook and it could be perfect keychain size!

My youngest is planning a gift exchange with his buddies and somehow I have roped myself into making a couple of these patterns from Shea Crochet: this Charmander crochet pattern and the Squirtle crochet pattern below. He expressed interest in learning to crochet and even though I knew this was not going to be a beginner project, he got me and now I’ve got this pattern and a skein of orange yarn and almost all of the pieces done: it’s sewing time. Follow my instagram to see an update when I’m done.

Here’s the other adorable pattern I bought to make (for my kid’s buddy! What was I THINKING?!). This little Squirtle Crochet Pattern (also from Shea Crochet) will sit about 7 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 9 inches long when he is finished, when made with a 3.5 mm hook and worsted yarn. Stay tuned to my Instagram to see the finished product!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

But, if you’re wanting a quicker project (and really, I should have pushed for these guys), this Starter Pokemon Plush Dolls Crochet Pattern Set from 53 Stitches would be much quicker to make up. They are not quite as accurate to the characters, but surely, they’d be recognizable, no? These are definitely more beginner friendly, so if you’re new to crochet, they might be a little more your speed.

Ok, this one definitely will not be a quick one, but how could I not include it? This Mewtwo crochet pattern (again from Shea Crochet… so many good Pokemon amigurumi patterns!) is an advanced level crochet pattern, so if you’re a newbie, this is probably not the pattern for you, but she’s a beauty if you have the skills! With 31 pages and over 70 photos to help you, you will be able to make this toy that stands approximately 20 inches tall, 7.5 inches wide and 18 inches long (includes the tail). Pretty incredible! The Pokemon fan in your life will be impressed by this one!

Ok, my 12 year-old did not pick this one out, so I’m not sure how accurate a represenation it is of the Gyarados Pokemon, but I though it looked pretty cool. This Gyarados Pokemon Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Sir Purl Grey is very animated looking and will make a doll about 36 cm (14.3 inches) long with worsted weight yarn.

I couldn’t have a Pokemon pattern round up and not include Pikachu! This sweet Pikachu Crochet Pattern from Panda Crochet Store is a deal (only ~$1.44 today!). This one is made with superfine yarn, so it would probably take a bit more time to make up, but he’s so adorable and an iconic Pokemon character, he’d be loved and recognized by anyone!

Speaking of total deals, this Eeveelution Pokemon Pattern set from Nerdy Knitter Designs is only ~$8.53 CAD right now, which is a 70% discount and an absolutely amazing price for 9 patterns that look this detailed! Amazing!

If you have never crocheted with a super bulky chenille yarn, you will be floored at how quickly you can make an adorable, chunky, super squishy and cuddly toy out of it. This Gengar Amigurumi Pattern from Azelia Crochet has 13 pages with lots of pictures and tricks to help you create tyour own amigurumi step-by-step. This would be great for a relatively new crocheter! And it’s so satisfying how quickly toys in this yarn work up!

I hope you found some inspiration for your own Pokemon crochet adventure. It’s always fun to crochet some delightful little toys for your kids (or your kids’ friends, if you’re easily tricked into extra work, like me *face palm*). May your hands be pain-free and your yarn have no yarn barfs as you push during this final stretch of making, maker-friends! Go grab a pattern today or pin it for later!

Quick & Beautiful Handmade Christmas Wall Hangings

It’s kick it into high gear on the gift-making front for me right now! But (of course), as I’m looking for things to make for the family, I’m always finding things to make for myself and our home. Who knows, maybe I’ll make one of these for a family member? I have a spot at my front door for a small one, or I can temporarily displace the standard one I have up most of the time! This might just be my after Christmas project for me! Check out this beautiful collection of handmade Christmas wall hangings and tell me which one you like!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

This Crochet Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Pattern from Little Light Design measures 11 inches wide by 28 inches tall, which just might be the perfect size for the spot at my front door. It uses medium (worsted, or a 4) weight yarn and 5.00 mm crochet hook and is an intermediate level crochet pattern. You’ll need a wooden dowel as well, which you can find for a good price here on Amazon.

Little Light Design has a bunch of wall hanging crochet patterns, but I also love the simple beauty of this Noel Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern. This one works up to be about 17 x 25 inches, so a little too wide for the space at the front entrance, but possible the right size for the spot where my regular crochet wall hanging is (that one was made with this pattern). Bonus: I can totally make it whatever colour I want so I can make it match my living room! #makerlife

Here is another small and minimalist wall hanging that could fill that spot at my front entrance. This Minimalist Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern from Seacliffe Cottage measures approximately 11.5 x 10 inches, excluding the fringe and would work up super quickly! Perfect for a last-minute, but very thoughtful handmade Christmas gift!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

Little Light Design has yet another bobbly crochet Christmas wall hanging with this Snowflake Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern. I love the one-colour simplicity of this wall hanging: it would coordinate with any decor! A little larger, this size of this wall hanging is approximately 16.5 inches wide and 32.5 inches long. The skill level on this pattern is easy, but basic crochet skills and techniques are needed.

If you love those bobble stiches, “A Very Bobble Wall Hanging” Crochet Pattern from Love and Stitch Designs is the pattern for you! The relief design on this wall hanging stands out and has a beautiful texture to enjoy. Made with just one colour of worsted weight yarn and a 5.00 mm crochet hook, it works up quickly. Give yourself a few days though, as it measures 16 inches wide by 25.5 inches long.

It really is all about the bobble, eh? If you want to talk quick projects, this macrame-inspired Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern from Fresh Knack made with super bulky yarn (size 7), here shown made with Bernat Home Decor (one of my favourites… AND I have some of this in my stash right now!!! Stash project! Wahoo!) This one would whip up so quickly, you could probably make it in a short evening of crocheting!

Love and Stitch Designs coming in with this gorgeous Plaid Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern! I love how plaid can get worked up so beautifully in crochet! Such a fun colourwork technique! It’s amazing how three colours of yarn that you wouldn’t necessarily would work together magically do when they are worked up in a plaid pattern!

Fresh Knack has another macrame-inspired Modern Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern for you to check out. When I was looking for wall hanging patterns, almost all of them were rectangular-shaped, which is cool, but this one stood out because it has that macrame-style shape. Such a fun and simple design! I love the incorporation of multiple dowels!

Ok, I went looking for some knitting patterns for Christmas wall hangings and seriously, it just came up with more crochet wall hangings! And hey, I’m not about it, because I found this super cute Christmas Gonk Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern from Stitches in Time Co UK. How adorable is this little gnome? Such a sweet pattern! This guy would take a little longer than the earlier patterns I’ve shared since it’s made with DK (3) weight yarn.

Ok, here’s another really adorable, but a little more involved Christmas Deer Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern by Chicaoutlet. This makes a lovely little wall hanging for a home with kids around. Or for someone who loves whimsical things (why are they always for kids? boo).

This whimsical Snowman Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern from Stitch by Fay is a delightful little winter-themed wall hanging made with DK weight yarn, but measuring only 9.5 inches by 7.5 inches (excluding hanging loops and fringe), so it would work up pretty quickly. Of course, you could use a heavier weight yarn , like a worsted or a bulky weight and a larger hook, and make a larger, chunkier wall hanging to fill a larger space. That’s the beauty of making it yourself: customization!!!

I hope you enjoyed this collection of wall hanging crochet patterns. Grab one today and make a quick gift or pin it for later for a great winter break project!

Check out this beautiful collection of crochet patterns for Christmas wall hangings! Some of them even look like macrame! Quick last minute handmade gifts to make! #PatternRoundUp #CraftEvangelist #Etsy #Crochet #Yarn #Crafts

Make Your Own Crocheted Puppets!

It’s no secret that I love amigurumi. I’ve thought about making puppets with amigurumi for a long time. I just think that amigurumi would lend itself to puppet-making so well. I finally thought to gather up a collection of puppet patterns and they all happen to be crochet! Check them out!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

How incredible is this Dr Piper MD Hand Puppet Crochet Pattern from Hollys Hobbies Ptbo? This was the kind of puppets that the puppetry group at the small Bible school I went to for a year after high school used. It was always fun to watch them make the puppets come alive with little puppet skits. This pattern makes such a professional-looking puppet; I was surprised to see that Holly’s Hobbies didn’t have more puppet options similar to this one, but if you are creative and an intermediate crocheter, I’m sure you could modify some of the details to make a variety of different looking puppets for a whole set of puppet characters.

Cassius the Friendly Crocodile Hand Puppet Crochet Pattern from Three Loops on the Hook is an adorable little hand puppet that would be a fun little gift for a child to practice their own puppetry.

Three Loops on the Hook also has this Uli the Unicorn Hand Puppet Crochet Pattern which would make a sweet little handmade toy for a unicorn-loving child. Of course, if you were going to make these for your dayhome or classroom, you would need a collection of different characters, so check out the other puppet characters in the Three Loops on the Hook shop.

Ismo the Owl Hand Puppet Crochet Pattern from Hansens Crochet To Play would make a great puppet for helping to tell stories at the library or at school. I love the cute little scarf and feather details on the puppet’s body.

Those of us old enough to remember will feel nostaligic for this Lambchop Vintage Puppet Crochet Pattern from CooloRoonie. I believe the original puppet was made with a sock, but this crocheted version has such a great likeness to the original Lambchop; it’s sure to be well-received by any fan.

This Chaco Parrot Stuffed Hand Puppet Crochet Pattern from Inner Child Crochet is a lovely cartoonish puppet with great character. Any child would be delighted to make this adorable stuffed parrot come to life.

Aaron the Dragon Hand Puppet Crochet Pattern from Hansens Crochet to Play is another sweet hand puppet pattern, perfect for the dragon-fan. Make it in multiple colours for a whole community of adorable dragon friends!

These Crochet Finger Puppets from Unique Crochett are not a pattern, but rather a finished item, so if you don’t know how to crochet or you don’t have time to make them, but still want a set of sweet finger puppets for a loved child or for you classroom, you can order them individually or as a set from Unique Crochett.

The simpilicity of this Dragon Puppet Crochet Pattern from AlaSascha just makes me think that anything is possible when it comes to making your own crochet characters into puppets. You could whip up this friendly dragon puppet in just a few hours and have a gorgeous handmade gift for a loved on in your life.

Who even thought you could make your own puppet? Crochet is such a great medium for providing structure and flexibility for creative projects of all kinds. I hope you found a puppet that delighted you. Go grab a pattern and get your supplies ready to make one of these cute patterns today. Or pin it so you can find it later!

How to Support Ukranian Makers

This week the war in Ukraine enters its third month. I can’t imagine what it must be like to experience war like this. My great great grandparents immigrated to Canada from this part of the world in the 1910s when there were rumours of war, and I am grateful for the peace and freedom I’ve known my whole life in this country. With so many people in Ukraine experiencing upheaval and uncertainty (at minimum), it is hard to know how to help. There are many charities and places to donate, and maybe you’ve already heard about this or done this, but I saw a great idea on Instagram in the early days of the war to support Ukrainian makers: we can buy digital files from them on Etsy! The Etsy shop owner doesn’t have to do anything (like make a product and ship it to you) because the process is automatic and there’s no physical item to worry about. You get something beautiful or helpful to use and the designer has some income. I’ve already bought a couple of crochet patterns and an embroidery pattern and I’ve been on the lookout for more. So, I’ve rounded up some great patterns and digital files from Ukrainian designers for you to support some makers who could use it right now.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

There are a number of prolific designers from Ukraine and many of them design the cutest amigurumi toy patterns, like this Big Sloth Crochet Pattern from Your Loved Toy. I always try to include a link to the shop of the patterns I feature because I want my readers to be sure that these aren’t all my designs and if they like them, they can check out more of their patterns, but it is especially important for the purposes of this post. Check out more of Natalia’s patterns at Your Loved Toy if you like this Big Sloth Crochet Pattern.

You can search for more patterns or digital files yourself, by going to Etsy, searching “digital files” or “crochet pattern” or “knitting patterns” and then click “All filters” and enter “Ukraine” in the Shop Location filter. Or just click one of those linked words, depending on what you’re looking for. Make sure to read the description to ensure you are buying a digital product and not a physical product, or you might be disappointed with delays and may cause unnecessary stress to an indie maker who is already struggling right now.

Blue Rabbit Toys has sooooo many lovely amigurumi crochet patterns. I’ve featured many of Irina’s patterns before and didn’t realize she was based in Ukraine. So many fun and unique little crochet patterns. Pick up this Spirit of Apple Tree Amigurumi Pattern to help support her and provide some stable income during this tumultous time.

Make a cute Plush Bumble Bee Amigurumi with this quick and easy pattern from Toyslvanna. This pattern is beginner level and it uses chenille yarn which is thick and bulky so it works up quickly to make this sweet little bee in no time!

This adorable little Easy Crochet Octopus Pattern from Easy Crochet Designs contains 7 pages and 20 photos and is a perfect pattern for beginners! It would make a great lovey for a baby, as all of the accessories are sewn on and there are no buttons or safety eyes.

This sweet Crochet Tank Top Pattern from Beach Wear Room is a great little number to crochet up for summer. It’s almost spring and eventually it will be warm enough to be able to wear one of these cute tops outside! If you get started now, you’ll be all ready to go as soon as the temperatures allow!

Sweet Slippers from Amazing Knit and Crochet Patterns for Toasty Toes

We’re out of our deep freeze here in Edmonton, though the weather dropped for a couple of days. I still find myself in need of slipper-wearing in the house. My family has never been big into slippers, so it’s hard to motivate myself to make something for them that there’s a high chance they won’t use. I made a lovely pair of slippers for myself a couple of years ago. They’re holding up well, but there’s some wear on the interior sole. (I used Phentex for the exterior sole, so that’s holding up great!) So, it might be time for me to consider a new pair. I did just make myself a pair of socks and they are surprisingly warm. But given how long it takes me to get from deciding to making, it’s probably time to start looking for a new pair now. So, I’ve rounded up a baker’s dozen knit and crochet patterns to consider and I’ll let you take a peek at them, too.

This Crochet-Knit Slipper-Clogs Crochet Pattern from Pdf Pattern Design is the pattern I made last time. They turned out great! It is a well-written pattern with clear instructions. It uses the Waistcoat stitch, a knit-looking crochet stitch that makes for a nice solid fabric, unlike the holes that you normally deal with in crochet. It takes a little bit of practice if you’re not familiar with it (hint: crochet LOOSELY!). Perhaps I should just go make myself a nice felt lining like this example has and that would solve my problem!

But sometimes it’s fun to make something new. This pattern from Sirins Crochet claims to be the Easiest Slippers Ever Crochet Pattern. These are made by creating two rectangles and then sewing them together. I think it looks great! It comes with instructions to make any size you want! So if you are a beginner crocheter looking to make a pair of slippers, or just your first project, this just might be the pattern for you! They look stunning and are so simple!

Need a set of crochet hooks? This Crochet Hook Set has everything you need to get started with crochet.

Here’s another Simple House Slippers Crochet Pattern, this one from Exclusive 72. This pattern is pretty basic with minimal shaping, another good pattern for beginner crocheters. The pattern includes all sizes and would be great for both men and women. These work up quickly in a tight stitch, making them durable, thick and fluffy.

UPDATE: Unfortunately this pattern is no longer available, but check out these other simple house slipper crochet patterns for some good options!

I just love the look of these Dakota Crochet Casual Slippers from Magic4Kids. Using super bulky yarn and a large hook, this pattern works up quickly and includes sies for kids and adults, so you can make a pair for the whole family. I love the structured look of this slipper! I’ve got some super bulky yarn around that I don’t have a plan for, so this might be just the thing!

I have been eyeing up patterns like these Crochet Converse Slippers from Crochet Milie for years! I’m sure I would have already made them if I didn’t imagine giving them to my husband, him being genuinely delighted with them, wearing them a couple of times and then never touching them again. It sounds cynical, but we’re in our 20th year of marriage; I know how these things go. (But they’re so fun looking!)

These delightful Crocheted Snowman Slippers from Tutti Frutti Patterns are a whimsical, yet easy crochet pattern to make this delightful little pair of winter-themed, novelty slippers. And made with plush, velour yarn, as shown here, they look sooooo cozy! (I think my youngest kid would be a fan of these!)

Speaking of fuzzy slippers, I have been working with faux fur yarn lately (I just released my Furry Mouse Muff Crochet Pattern a couple of weeks ago) and I think it would be very fun to make some slippers with it. This Women’s Cuddly Faux Fur Slippers Crochet Pattern from Knit And Crochet Ever After is topped with a cozy faux fur, which looks so comfy… and maybe that would be enough faux fur? I don’t know, I’m thinking there would be something so divine about slipping your feet into fully faux fur lined slippers, but then… maybe they’d get too hot and sweaty and uncomfortable? Maybe keeping the cold breeze out at the ankles would be sufficient?

This crochet pattern for these Women’s Modern Faux Fur Fuzy Ugg Boot Slippers from The Cozy Knot Crochet also look suuuuper cozy! You can also make these with a non-faux-fur yarn as well, which would be easier to crochet, especially if you’re less experienced. The trick with faux fur yarn is knowing where to put your hook; you have to crochet by feel and if you’re new to crochet, it’s a little harder to do if you can’t see your stitches.

Looking for some faux fur yarn? Lionbrand Go For Faux is a great option!

If you’re looking to make some baby slippers, I thought this was a great idea from The Northern Moose: this Crochet Baby Booties Pattern comes with SOLES. How cool is that? I often seen beautifully handmade slippers and then they have these lovely leather or suede soles and I feel like that’s such a barrier to me making them. I love this idea of being able to get the pattern and the sole together. Very fun. So you get the digital pattern when you first buy it and then they will send you the size of sole that you order. How great is that?

Ok, knitters, you were so patient through all those crochet patterns. And now I have a few knitting patterns for you! Starting wit this super affordable Moccasin Slippers with a Cuff Knitting Pattern from Kween Bee. It is also available for free on her website, which is included in her pattern listing. But if you like to print a version off, or be able to make it without internet access or your phone going into sleep mode, this pdf printable is less than $2. This is an easy-level knitting pattern, so if you’re looking for a beginner slipper pattern, check this one out!

The Shalom Slippers knitting pattern from Dole Valley Girl Knits are worked seamlessly from the cuff down. Knit with bulky weight yarn, these soft and squishy slippers will fly off your needles and warm your toes! They come in sizes from small (women’s 5-6) to xl (men’s 10.5).

Here’s another Easy Knit Slipper Pattern from Knitting Socks Lydmila. I love the shape of these simple, minimalist slippers.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, this pattern is no longer available, but check out these other great Easy Knit Slipper Patterns for some good options.

Wondering what knitting needles I use? KnitPicks Interchangeables are my go to needles!

Finally, for an adorable Baby Booties Knitting Pattern, this pattern from Baby Jumbuck Knits makes a sweet, quick and easy to knit baby slipper with a minimum of finishing. They would make a lovely baby shower gift. The pattern comes in 3 sizes, newborn-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-9 months. How adorable are these little booties?!

I hope you found a pair of slippers to crochet or knit. I’m still trying to figure out which ones I’m going to make. If you made a decision, go grab yourself a pattern today. If you’re still deciding like me, pin it for later!

I couldn’t resist this adorable little Hedgehog with a Heart Crochet Pattern from My Crochet Wonders, so I snapped it up shortly after it was released! Little amigurumi patterns like this are delightful because they’re so quick and rewarding to make up! You can sit down a couple of times in a weekend and have an adorable little stuffy. I was still in winter holiday mode when I saw this and I thought since it’s so ball-like, you could hang a little string from it and have a super sweet little tree ornament!

This Fleece Teddy & Bunny Crochet Pattern from All About Ami would be such a thoughtful gift for a little one that you love. It is made with Lionbrand Go for Fleece Yarn, which works up quickly and fills in all the little “holes” of crochet and is super fuzzy and cuddly. I think I have at least one kid who would still enjoy one of these delightful little stuffed animals!

It’s not always easy for knitters to find cute stuffed animal patterns, but this collection of 6 Teddy Bear Variations from Mary Jane’s Tea Room has a variety of options for you to make six different teddy bears. Sweet little skirts and bows for the hair and adorable little shorts and shoes options allow you to customize a cuddly knitted bear stuffy for someone you love.

I just love this super cute Crochet Pattern of the Ice Cream Monster Yeti Amigurumi from amiguruku. This sweet little crochet pattern is nearly free (it is listed as free, but the cost is just the cost of listing and selling it on Etsy). I love the big wide closed-mouth smile on this adorable little amigurumi monster. He’s not exactly Valentine’s-themed, but who wants hearts all over everything all year round? This guy is so sweet and fun, you know you want to make one! And it’s such a deal of a pattern!

Stephanie from All About Ami just released her new Chinese New Year Tiger Crochet Pattern. This is another beautiful pattern by Stephanie; her designs are always great and also available for free on her blog. She is definitely a designer worth following!

If you’re getting into making amigurumi, you’ll probably need some safety eyes. Check out these. You’ll probably also need some polyfil.

The Tiger is just the lates in Stephanie’s collection of Chinese New Year Zodiac Amigurumi. You can get the whole adorable pattern bundle here.

Ok, now switching to an amigurumi that is not Valentine’s themed at all, but is just so unique and full of amazing details, I could not leave out this Crocheted Highland Cow Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Cottontail and Whisker. This pattern is not for beginners, but what a gorgeous result, don’t you think? So much fun! If you’re looking for a unique gift for a unique person, this pattern definitely fits the bill!

While stuffies definitely delight, I just love a functional gift! This Toastie Bread Bag Crochet Pattern from Lil Crochet Bean is such a sweet example of a functional yet so adorable amigurumi! I feel like I need this little bag to just slip my phone and wallet in and throw across my body. Who says that a grown woman can’t carry slightly silly accessories?

Snuggly Handmade Socks to Knit and Crochet

I finally did it! This was the year I knit myself some socks! They’re so great: I love them! They’re so warm! If you want to see my process and finished knit socks, follow me on Instagram to see all the patterns I make! If you have not experienced the joy and warmth of handmade wool socks, you need to get your hands (…feet?) on some of these! I’ve collected a bunch of great sock patterns for you to try out, whether you knit or crochet!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First, for the knitters: The Thicksgiving Socks from Summer Lee Design Co. These socks are an easy, basic, worsted weight sock knitting pattern with three different variations. Theh pattern set includes tips and tricks for working worsted socks by marling two strands of fingering weight yarn together.

The Vanilla Socks on DPNs knitting pattern by Crazy Sock Lady Designs is another straightforward sock design. If you prefer double-pointed needles or that’s all you have, this pattern is for you, specifically designed for double-pointed needles (DPNs), it has an accompanying video tutorial that walks you through how to make the entire sock on DPNs, from setting up the Cast-On to the Kitchener-stitch toe and weaving in your ends!

The Heartnut Socks knitting pattern from Knox Mountain Knit Co is actually a physical item, unlike most of the PDF downloads that I feature here on my blog. The full colour, professionally printed knitting pattern is printed on acid-free, heirloom quality papter and includes a digital download code for Ravelry, which is definitely an interesting delivery method! Let me know if you like this and I will consider featuring something like this in my patterns! I love the beautiful and elegant heartnut inspired cable across the top, so if you’ve been wanting to make socks and also learn cables, this is the pattern for you!

If you’re looking for a deal of a pattern, this Top-Down Adult Socks Knitting Pattern from Zyapa Masha is only $0.66 Canadian! It includes 6 pages of text, charts and pictures. The socks are worked top down, using double-pointed needles OR circular needles, if you use the magic loop method (I love magic loop! I use circular needles for everything!).

Wondering what knitting needles I use? KnitPicks Interchangeables are my go to needles!

If you consider yourself an intermediate knitter, then the River Ripple Socks knitting pattern by Lucy Neatby of little barn studios is the pattern for you. Perfect for showing off a skein of hand-painted yarn, the construction is beautiful! From the description: “These socks are begun with a soft faced cuff with a decorative i-cord inspired detail. This leads into the leg pattern with cabled elongated stitches to highlight the colours in the yarn. A 70% garter stitch short row heel is used (with smaller needles for added durability) and then the leg stitch pattern is reversed with a condensed stitch pattern for the sole, adding strength, warmth and maintaining equal row height with the instep pattern. Finished with a cozy garter stitch toe to coordinate with the heel.” Sounds so good, right?

The Cozy Cabin Socks knitting pattern from Darling Jadore is another lovely worsted-weight sock knitting pattern. “A classic construction with cozy knit stitches on worsted-weight yarn, The Beginner Socks pattern is perfect for first-time sock knitters and seasoned knitters alike. Designed with beginners in mind, this pattern thoroughly guides you through each step and with video guidance. You’ll be amazed by how quickly these socks knit up, and how fun they are to make.”

The House Socks knitting pattern from HandKnit Home is a great knitting pattern for a pair of cute and comfortable ankle-length socks. The pattern is written for Adult Medium size and includes instructions for adding length to the foot for a longer sock. The pattern calls for an Estonian cast on (new cast-on for me! I love learning new techniques!), but will work just as well with a regular long-tail cast on.

How about some colour-work socks? The MIEZI Sock knitting pattern from average pony gives you detailed instructions on how to knit a pair of socks with leopard spots! How cool is that?! (Also, don’t you love the bottom of the foot, too?! The pattern contains detailed descriptions on how to knit cuff, leg, shadow wrap heel, foot and toe of your new sock. The pattern is especially designed with frequent color changes so that you rarely have long floats and none is longer than 9 or 10 stitches. So it’s perfect for practicing colorwork.

While the colourwork socks may be a little more advanced than your skills, the Retro Socks knitting pattern from D19 Eco Friendly Life might be more your speed. The diamond texture adds interest, while still allowing this pattern to be classified as a beginner pattern. So, if you’ve wanted to get started with some socks, but are bored by the plain socks of traditional beginner knit sock patterns, check out this pattern

Looking for some sock yarn? KnitPicks has a wide variety of sock yarns at a variety of price points, in a wide range of fibre contents. Local yarn shops are also great place to pick up a skein of lovely sock yarn. Since you usually only need one hank of yarn for a pair of socks, it’s a great time to splurge on some hand-dyed local yarns!

Ok, now for the crocheters. We don’t immediately think crochet for socks because the fabrci that is created is typically bulkier and holier at the same time, than I prefer in a sock. But this quote from the listing for this book is worth considering: “Having been a sock knitter for many many years, when it came to crochet socks I found it difficult to find any patterns that didn’t look bulky, stiff and uncomfortable. Tempted to try my hand at knitting lacy socks but lacking the confidence, I turned to my trusty crochet stitches and a new love was born. You really can make crochet socks that are comfortable, beautiful and practical.” The Crochet Sock Collection is a physical printed booklet from Vicki Brown Designs. If you want to get going right away, though, you can add a note to the seller and you will also be sent a PDF copy. Try out some crochet socks with this great collection os 6 crochet sock patterns!

The Herringbone Socks Crochet Pattern from Heart Hook Home is a toe-up, short row heel sock using the Herringbone Half Double Crochet stitch. Available in 5 sizes from Women’s 5 to Men’s 13, you can whip up a pair of these for all your favourite poeple.

The Pearl Socks Crochet Pattern from mon petit violin was originally published in Inside Crochet magazine, issue 101. With lovely texture on the leg portion of the sock, these socks will be stunning to look at outside of the boots and perfect to wear inside of boots to keep your feet warm this winter!

The Happy Socks are an easy crochet pattern as far a socks go! This socks from this pattern by Rich Textures Crochet are made using simple single crochet stitches and worked from the cuff down. It includes a video tutorial includes the full instructions to make a women’s pair of size 5/6 (US) socks. In fact, if you don’t mind reading a pattern online, this pattern is available for free on the Rich Textures Crochet blog (there’s web address in the listing description)!

Cables are typically reserved for knitting, but the Cable Car Socks Crochet Pattern from A la Sascha incorporates beautifully textured cables into these crocheted socks that are not stiff or uncomfortable at all. These socks look so beautifully constructed, it’s very tempting to consider making many pairs of these adorable socks!

What about you? Have you picked a pair of socks to make? They’re actually a pretty quick project. I worked on mine a fair bit over just a few days. It’s so satisfying to watch them come together and then the warmth on the feet! Wow! So worth it! So, grab yourself a pattern and some supplies and get making! Or pin it for later so you don’t forget.

Snuggle into a lovely pair of hand-knit or crocheted socks with this curated collection of fantastic knitting and crochet sock patterns!
