With the colder weather now upon us, we at Jaarn believe that it is the perfect time to pull out the knitting needles and get stuck into some winter knitting projects. Many of us still have some time to fill whilst waiting for the lockdown restriction to ease. Spend this time perfecting some practical winter items that you can gift yourself, friends and those in desperate need of some winter warmth.
5 Winter Knitting Projects for Winter
Pick one of our favourite winter knitting projects to practice over quarantine – or pick them all! From quick and easy projects for beginners to more complex ideas, you will find a quarantine project suitable for your skill level in our blog.
Winter Knitting Projects #1: Cosy Socks
If you are looking for something super simple to get started with, winter knitted socks are a super easy choice. Depending on your skill level, you can include multiple colours and a pattern, or keep it simple with a solid colour. Knitted socks are perfect for chilly nights at home or paired with cute ankle boots for a cosy winter look.
Winter Knitting Projects #2: Knitted Hats
There are so many winter hat patterns on the internet, as well as a variety of different styles. Experiment with basic beanies to slouchy beanies, or cute berets. These are projects that can be completed quickly and will always be welcomed by receivers. Feel free to add personalised detail if you are feeling confident.
Winter Knitting Projects #3: Slippers
If you are looking for soft slipper socks to wear around the house to protect your feet from the icy tiled floors, make your own. There are hundreds of easy slipper sock patterns online that help you make customized slippers in your favourite colour. You can take it one step further by adding a cute detail to the top, such as a flower or pom-pom.
Winter Knitting Projects #4: A Blanket
Not all winter projects are quick clothing items. Blankets and throws take much longer, however, minimal skill is required. Depending on your level of commitment, you can make a small baby’s blanket or a warm throw for your couch. There are so many different ways to do this, which makes the project perfect for anyone; from a carefully knitted stitches to an arm knitted blanket made of thick yarn, you can experiment and find one that meets your requirements.
Winter Knitting Projects #5: A Trendy Poncho
This project is super cute and super fashionable. Knitted ponchos are great for gifting and a great project to challenge your skills. Depending on your skill level, you can keep it very simple or add in tassels, pattern or detail. These ponchos are super warm and cosy and will be well worth the time and patience needed to create it.
