Knit and Crochet Snood Patterns for a Cozy Winter

What is a snood? When I looked into the meaning of this term, I discovered that it basically was a hair net. But it has evolved to also mean “a wide ring of knitted material worn as a hood or a scarf.” So with that somewhat more broad definition, we go forth into finding some lovely cozy hooded cowl patterns, or hooded scarves, or snood patterns to make to keep cozy this winter.

I have been eyeing up the TikTok Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from The Creatrix in the Matrixx for a while. This warm and cozy snood pattern went viral last year and it’s not hard to see why. As you can see in the video below, the addition of the panels means there is a cozy covering to keep you covered under a shawl collared coat. This is the kind of winter coat that I have and this hooded cowl would be almost perfect. The only trouble for me is that I don’t want to pull it over my head every time!

This Furry Balaclava Crochet Pattern from JustBInnovative. I’m a big fan of faux fur yarn, even though it has a bit of a learning curve to work with. I don’t recommend it for beginners because you need to have a consistent stitch gauge. You also need to understand the construction of stitches to “feel” where to put the stitches since the faux fur hides them quite well. The advantage of this is that it’s not “hole-y” like other crocheted garments can be. Again, this is a pull over the head hood.

The Inga Hood knitting pattern from Amy La Roux Pattern Shop is a hooded cowl knitting pattern that is great over the head snood to consider. I love the texture and simplicity of the garter stitch. The designer recommends this as an intermediate pattern because the pattern requires the skill of grafting.

This Button Neck Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from Well Ravelled might be just the thing for me, since it has buttons at the cowl part. I wouldn’t have to pull this over my head to put it on! I would want a front panel to properly fit under my coat, but this construction is certainly an option for me.

The Gran’dana Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from LES by Ruby Baby is a poncho-inspired hooded cowl. The design uses mostly granny stitch and a drawstring to cinch up that hood. This might be better suited to less extreme winters than we have here in Edmonton. Our winter winds would blow right through that granny stitch hood, but it is very fun looking.

The Convertible Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from the Nerd Asylum Crafts is a cozy pattern with a removable hood! The buttons around the hood allow you to wear the cowl without the hood if you want!

The Evie George Cozy Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from Knitty Bitty Committee is a gorgeous and cozy hooded cowl. It looks so luxurious with all that cozy fabric to wrap yourself in! This is definitely a consideration, even though it’s a pull over your head construction.

Ok, full disclosure, I’m probably not going to wear a Lion Hooded Cowl made with this crochet pattern from mon petit violon. But it is so adorable, I had to include it!

The Vemdalen Hooded Scarf Knitting Pattern from Amy La Roux Pattern Shop is another good option. It doesn’t have to go on over the head, so it’s a good contender for my needs. And also, it is an option for the knitters who don’t crochet out there.

The Alasse Miriel Hooded Cowl Knitting Pattern by The Jane Victoria is a delicate, beautiful, Victorian-style hooded cowl pattern. It has a capelet look to it and would be perfect if you were harkening to a Victorian-era style. This is another good and interesting option for knitters.

The Autumn Hooded Cowl Pattern from Wooly Gems is a cozy knitting pattern featuring a button to make it even more snug once fastened. Also, there is no pointy hood with this pattern. It uses short-rows to shape the hood, so you will need to know (or learn!) short rows to make this pattern.

I hope you’re keeping warm where you are. If you’re not, take the time to whip up one of these snood patterns this winter. Grab your yarn and supplies and pick up a pattern and get making! Or pin it for later on your ideas board!

Knit and Crochet Gorgeous Handmade Gifts for Baby

My nephew’s fiance is having a baby! I’m so excited! I’m going to be a great auntie! So fun! AND that means that I can make cute things for the baby! Baby is due around Christmas and we don’t know the gender, so it’s a gender-neutral baby pattern round up! If you have a baby you’re knitting or crocheting for, I have a lovely collection of ideas for you!

*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.*

Let’s start with garments! This stunning Baby Wool Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Little French Knits is an adorable French-inspired striped cardigan with a raglan button opening. I love this one; I think it reads a little bit girly, so I’m a little hesitant to go with this one for my nephew’s baby, but this pattern comes with 3 sizes: 0-3 months, 6-9 months, and 12-18 months, so I could totally make the 12-18 months size for next Christmas!

How adorable is this Back to School Kids Jacket Knitting Pattern from Agasalhos e Bugalhos? You could duplicate stitch a letter on the chest; how sweet would that be? This pattern is available in 11 sizes from 0 months up to 14 years! Incredible! You could make this for any kid or a collection of matching jackets for a family of kids! If this letterman’s jacket isn’t your style, Agasalhos e Bugalhos has soooooo many other adorable baby patterns, it’s worth taking a look in the shop to find a classic baby knitting pattern that you’ll love!

The Joyous Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern is another one of those stunning baby knitting patterns from Agasalhos e Bugalhos. This pattern is worked top-down in garter stitch, which makes a nice thick fabric while also being easy and quick to knit. This pattern comes with instructions to knit 8 sizes from newborn to 24 months.

This Hooded Baby Jacket from Easy Knitting Camp is another garter-stitch jacket, but this one with a warm and cozy hood and double-breasted buttons. This pattern includes 6 sizes, from 0 months to 6 years and is knit in once piece from the top down, using raglan construction to shape th yoke, so it requires no sewing! I love seamless patterns; they’re my favourite!

The Beginning Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Knits Du Nord is a classic, top-down, seamless knitting pattern including instructions to make 7 different sizes from 0 months to 8 years. Simple and classic, you can’t go wrong with this adorable knitting pattern.

Not to forget the crocheters in the room, this Crochet Sasha Sweater is a great crochet baby sweater option from Bananna Patterns includes 4 sizes, from 0-6 months to 3-4 years. I love the additional texture on the body, which adds to its specialness. This would make a delightful gift for baby!

The Mika Crocheted Cardigan Pattern from Petit Chou Chou Shop is a top-down, seamless crochet cardigan pattern for baby. Instructions are given for 7 sizes from 0 months to 6 years. I love how classic and simple this lovely little jacket is! Perfect for baby boys or baby girls!

I’m always torn between wanting to dress babies like little grown ups or like dolls with fun things like bear ears. I think there’s room for both! This Baby Bear Hoodie Crochet Pattern from Adele Uyan Crochet is just the ticket for a not-too-costumey hooded sweater with a touch of whimsy with little bear ears. You could skip them I guess, if you didn’t want the bear look, but I think they’re so adorable.

Not your traditional baby booties, this Crochet Baby Sneakers Pattern from Crochet Club Store Co are such a fun little baby shoe for your little one! This pattern makes a pair of slippers in a 3-6 month size, so keep that in mind. What a fun little pattern!

The Rainbow of Stars Baby Blanket from Three Loops on the Hook is a fun crocheted blanket pattern that would be a fun option for baby! It would be sure to be a treasured blanket! I can totally see this blanket being the kind of blanket that would become a loved comfort item for a child, that they would take with them into adulthood, worn and loved.

Another fun option is a sweet stuffed animal! I love this adroable Baby Bunny Knitting Pattern from Elves World. This sweet little stuff bunny pattern also includes instructions for those adorable dungarees (overalls) as well as a cute beret not show in this photo. This would be such an adorable stuffed toy for baby!

I just love the unexpectedness of this fun Amigurumi Knit Good Pattern from Amy Gaines. Honestly, I was drawn to this pattern because it reminds me of my middle son (16), but it’s such a delightful little stuffed animal pattern, a little unexpected, but definitely delightful!

There’s just something about bunnies that just say “baby” and this little Cotton, My Little Rabbit Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Pensebonheur definitely says that! “Big ears, a round belly, a pretty romper and a look of full tenderness” is how this adorable doll is described. The pattern comes in 4 languages with 9 pages of instructions and photos to make this little rabbit toy.

I couldn’t just scroll past this sweet little Baby Cake Bunny Crochet Pattern from Ninas Time 4U; it was just too cute! Patterns for all the accessories you see here are also included: the beanies, dungarees and swaddle bags, as well as the adorable little bunny! This pattern is available in English and German and it would make the sweetest baby shower gift!

I hope you enjoyed this round up of baby patterns. It was really hard to narrow them down and honestly, I don’t think I’m done looking yet. You can also check out this blog post for more great Baby Patterns to try. Grab a pattern and some yarn and get making today or pin it for later!

The Snowy Christmas Ornament Collection Crochet Pattern from Home of Yarns is an adorable set of 4 patterns to make these vintage bauble inspired ornaments!

I can’t get over the stunning detail of these gorgeous Amigurumi Christmas Ornament Set with the pattern from Natura Crochet Art.

The Fairy Ring Socks also by katiegreen is such a cute sock pattern for the more subtle option of the three patterns. It’s a little easier to hide whimsical socks under a pair of shoes, but still feel delightful knowing your secret fun socks are keeping your toes warm!

I loooooove the Fairy Ring Cardigan Knitting Pattern designed by katiegreen. This pattern looks steeked (the process of cutting your knitting), so it can be knit in the round and then made into a cardigan at the finish. I have still been too shy to get the steeked sweater pattern that I have made, so I have yet to try this process. It seems straightforward, though still slightlly terrifying.

I can’t get over the cuteness on the Toadstools Embroidered Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Love Fibres! I love the adorable embroidered mushrooms! I think this would be such a delightful gift for a new baby!

The Mushrooms Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Ana Swet is another mushroom-themed cardigan, but the mushroom design is worked using the duplicate stitch instead of regular embroidery. Looks like a great pattern to learn the duplicate stitch!

Stunning Daisy Sweaters to Knit and Crochet

When I was finishing up my Green Tee, I thought it would make the perfect canvas for some embroidery embellishment, but I wasn’t sure just what. I love daisies, but I get a little unsure of myself and so I go searching for inspiration so I can get an idea of what to do. In my search, I found some amazing daisy sweaters for both knitters and crocheters that I think you should check 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.*

I’m going to start with my knitters because I only have 3 patterns for you, so instead of making you scroll through all the crochet options (though I do recommend that!), I’ll give you yours right off the top. How fun is this Wavy Daisy Sweater from AnxiousGirlKnits? I love the bright bold colours used here, but you could make it in any colour combo you like. This pattern is knit with super bulky yarn, so it works up really quickly, for a quick satisfying knit. It’s also size inclusive, with 8 different sizes from a chest size from 28″ to 58″!

The Lazy Daisy Sweater Knitting Pattern from Celina Studioss is another super bulky weight knit sweater which will knit up quickly with a fun, side daisy for a different style. It’s size range is more limited, however: only XS to XL, so beyond that you’d have to grade it yourself, but it’s a pretty fun design that I wanted to include in this round up.

How adorable is this sweet Oopsy Daisy Sweater Knitting Pattern from Blue Bird Pin Shop? It only comes in sizes for children up to a child’s size 10, but if you had a basic knit sweater pattern for an adult, like the Brick Sweater (free Ravelry download!) by Clare Lee, I’m pretty sure you could figure out how to in corporate the pattern into it for an adult sized sweater.

The Chunky Daisy Sweater Crochet Pattern from AXXA Easy Patterns is an oversized chunky cardigan with large puffy daisies appliqued on top. This statement piece is sure to attract a lot of compliments and looks like such a fun handmade item to wear. It includes 6 sizes from XS to XXL and as it is a cropped cardigan with chunky yarn, it will work up quickly! So satisfying!

Ok, while these are not technically daisies in this pattern, the Izzy African Flower Sweater Crochet Pattern from iknityouknot2 is a colourful and innovative crochet sweater pattern that I couldn’t ignore as I searched for daisy sweaters. I love the integration of the African Flower hexagon motifs on one side with the stripes on the other. Such a fun design! While this sweater is not size inclusive, with grading only up to an XL, it’s so fun, I wanted to include it here.

The Daisy Granny Jumper Crochet Pattern from themissingyarn is a super fun granny square motif retro vibe pullover sweater that is so cheery that it will brighten the mood of any room the moment you walk in! It is an easy level pattern, so it could be one of the first crochet garments for a new crocheter! It comes in 6 sizes, with final garment measurements to about 132 cm (52″) across the chest. Given the amount of ease that the model here has (probably about 6-8 inches), that’s just up to an XL size.

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

Ok, I know, I know, not a daisy sweater, but come ON!!!! This crochet sunflower cardigan pattern from CrochetBao is soooo fun. It’s also beginner friendly and size inclusive, so it checks all my boxes! This pattern features 10 sizes from XXS to 5XL and calls for a 4 weight (worsted) yarn, which should be fairly easy to find in a variety of colours. The other fun thing about this pattern, is you could easily adjust the length of it to accommodate your preferences: cropped or duster (buy extra yarn if you want a longer cardigan!).

This Flower Sweater Crochet Pattern from Yarn by Nathanael was so fun I had to include it, even though I couldn’t find a lot of information about included sizes. It is motif-based, so you should be prepared to follow charts and if you have experience creating crocheted garments, you would probably be able to adjust and figure out how to make this in your size, no matter what size you were. However, if you are a newer crocheter or have no experience with garments, I would say you’d probably have to be straight-sized to make this pattern work for you.

This Daisy Granny Square Cardigan Crochet Pattern from Crafted by Cat UK is similar to the Sunflower Cardigan, but this one has buttons and the flower colours are definitely daisies (but it’s a very similar granny square). This pattern calls for an Aran weight yarn, which is just a little bit thicker than a worsted weight and includes instructions for up to a size 4XL.

So this Boho Crochet Robe Crochet Pattern from Linda Skuja Design doesn’t have the same daisy vibe as the above sweaters, but the lace flower motif definitely has a daisy vibe. This pattern is available in sizes XS to 4XL and has just 2 seams that can be crocheted together, so there is no sewing necessary! If you have never crocheted a lace garment before, you’ll be surprised at how quickly it works up. All that open work really makes for a quick project!

I hope you found some inspiration for a daisy (or other flower) inspired sweater to make! Go grab yourself a pattern and some yarn or pin it for later:

Ten Terrific Tee Shirts to Knit and Crochet

In my last post, I shared that I am working on a cardigan for my husband. I have begun and it is going fairly well. I think I need to rip out the work I did today though, because I didn’t do my math ahead of time, which was kinda dumb. Oh well, live and learn. This project requires a fair bit of attention because I am knitting without a pattern, so I can’t work on it whenever I want to knit, like when we watch TV or when I go to a knitting group. So I am currently working on a project for me, my Toronto Tee, as I like to call it, because I bought the yarn for it when we were in Toronto last summer. The pattern I am using is called Green Tee by Lone Kjeldsen and I’m probably more than halfway done right now. I am using Ella Rae Eco Organic Cotton yarn in the colourway Atlantis that I bought from Yarns Untangled. There were many other great t-shirt options to choose from, so I’ve collected some here, so you can find something lightweight and cute to make for yourself this spring!

This super basic knit tee pattern is the Perfect T-Shirt Knitting Pattern from
OriginallyLovely. Classic and simple, this tee will take you from the office to the picnic, looking cool and chic the whole time. An added bonus of a simple tee like this one: you could embellish it with embroidery! I’m seriously considering that for my Toronto Tee!

The Pyramid Tee from MinimiKnitDesign is a cropped, beginner-friendly, top-down knit tee sweater pattern, with an easily adjustable length. So if you prefer a longer tee or a cropped tee, this pattern will accommodate different lengths of both the body and the sleeves. That’s the best thing about knitting your own clothes! Completely customizable!

The Easy Summer Top Tee Pattern from VintagePatternFaves is another great beginner-friendly knit tee pattern to choose from. It’s always nice to be able to find a staple pattern that you can knit yourself. This is another great option if you wanted to embellish it with embroidery. If you want to learn how to embellish your knits, my friend Alex has a great book out: The Embroidered Closet. It has great patterns and helpful hints for embroidering on clothes!

The Frigga V-Neck Tee from OenlingKnit is a pretty oversized fit, v-neck tee knitting pattern with some seed stitch at the side (Can you see that poking out on the left?), adding a bit of subtle interest to the pattern.

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

The Pocketful of Stitches Tee by Knitatude is another beginner-friendly, top-down, raglan t-shirt knitting pattern. Includes a cute little pocket, which is a fun embellishment (and a great place to add some embroidery?!). And because it is top-down, it makes the length of both the body and the sleeves easily customizeable to your preference!

Ok, crocheters, I have not abandoned you for this pattern round up! There are crocheted tees too! If you’ve been watching Taylor Swift with her various knit and crocheted tees, tanks and bralettes, you will love some of the great options I have for you here! The Maria Top Crochet Pattern from OriginallyLovely is a sweet “granny stitch” crocheted tee that will have everyone asking where you got it and if you can make one for them. Absolutely adorable.

The Box Top Crochet Pattern from Woods and Wool Shop is a modern, boxy, effortless tee with lacy stripes that you can wear over jeans or a dress. The design is constructed with two simple panels that you can easily adjust the lenth for your perfect fit.

The Positano Tee Pattern from HopefulHoneyDesign has a delicate and loose-fitting style. It makes a great beach cover up top. It is available for free on her blog as well, but I love being able to have a pattern to print and follow along.

The Loopy Breeze Tee by LoopyHandmadeStudio is simple, stylish, airy, and really versatile. You can wear it with shorts, leggings or jeans… perfect any time of year.

I wanted to share the Ashley T-Shirt Crochet Pattern from i love tinderbox because it is a crocheted t-shirt pattern that you can wear without a tank or undershirt. I tend to dress pretty modestly, so while a crop top usually isn’t my go-to style, I did want to show a crocheted t-shirt that isn’t “hole-y.” Also, as with so many of the t-shirt patterns I’ve shared here today, the length is also completely customizable. You can easily make a full-lenth t-shirt from this cute pattern. Courtney has a bunch of other crocheted garment patterns that can also be worn on their own, including dresses, overalls, lounge pants, and sweaters. She also makes all her patterns size-inclusive up to 5XL.

I hope you found a tshirt to knit or crochet for yourself or someone you love here today. Go grab the pattern and get making! Or pin it for later!

Gear up for spring and summer with one of these beautiful knit or crochet t-shirt patterns!

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

Adorable Patterns to Start Your Year

It’s a new year and it’s time to make some new things! Did learn a new craft make your resolution list? I meant to sew today, but I made a major mistake in cutting my fabric which means I no longer have enough fabric to make the pattern. I’m kinda bummed about it, but I’m not going to waste the day. I’m going to tell you about some great new patterns in my preferred crafts that I have found! I’m always on the lookout for new patterns and adorable things to make.

I just love amigurumi! And I love play food.

This ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE knit kitten pattern came across my Facebook feed as an ad (and I clicked on it so now I never stop seeing it!), but when I followed the link, I was worried that it wasn’t actually sold by the designer, but was a stolen pattern. For the designer’s sake, I hope it’s not. I did some more searching and found the shop Cute Knit Toy which also has a bunch of other similar patterns, so I was pretty confident it was the original designer. I bought this pattern and I think I might go ahead and make it after I’m done my socks! Another (hopefully?!) quick little project before I head into making my next sweater.
