What does winter mean to you? Do you think of cold? Do you think of hand made goods? Do you think of hot cocoa or gifts? Or maybe you think of your favorite hat. Well, this week’s new pattern is trying to bring out the happy feelings of the classic beanie, with the Winter Beanie Ornament crochet pattern.
A nice ribbed band, a simple shape, and of course you can’t forget a nice fluffy pompom – the classic winter beanie is one most of us definitely know. I grew up in Utah and most years we would be lost without something to keep our ears warm, and so I always turned to my trusted winter beanie. It’s a staple in my house and has always been. And since I started making my own, I have so very many but the classic always hold a special place in my heart.
Now I kept the design simple so you can customize as you’d like. I think any kind of scrap yarn would be perfect for this pattern. Or make it in stripes or even add some polka dots with puffy paint. It’s totally up to you how you customize this piece. There’s so much room to make this design special for everyone you make it for. It would be great on a tree or as a tag for a gift bag.
Better still, you can make a pair of earrings. You know that earrings are some of my favorite things to make so I always like to include them for small projects like this. You can easily adapt the ornament as written to a nice 3d style but I liked a little more flat and easy one for myself. And just like the ornament, this would look great in polka dots. I almost did that myself but I think I’ll wait until the pattern is released to get too wild with decorations. I think it’s better to leave it simple than to overwhelm people with options.
Anyway, I do hope you like this little festive design. It’s great for all winter holidays and you can adapt it to fit your home decor as you’d like.
Don’t forget to wash and wear your masks and be kind. Have a happy December friends.

Like I do with all my earrings, I stiffened these with fabric stiffener. Just wet them down with the stiffener (I dilute it with water, so that it’s thinned out but not clear) and then lay them flat to dry completely. When they’re dry, attach the findings, such as jump rings and hooks, and wear. Feel free to add a pompom to the top of the earring with puffy paint.
