Now, let’s check out these fun crochet patterns!

The Revelry Cardigan

Since we already sneak peeked the pockets above, let’s jump in by talking about the Revelry Cardigan.

“Ugly” sweaters are a staple piece at every holiday party and winter outing. This comfortable and cozy oversized cardigan pattern takes that idea and tones it down to an everyday wear garment. With a trim, wearable silhouette (suitable for anyone), its focal points are the pockets, which utilize large-scale cross stitch embroidery to add customizable wintertime icons.

Aside from the Revelry cardigan, the rest of the patterns in this collection are home decor or holiday decorations. Let’s check them out!

Holiday Crochet Patterns: Blankets & Pillows

These blankets and pillows are fun and colorful, and most of them will make great home decor accents long after the holidays are over.

This holiday crochet patterns collection has two blankets: the Holiday Lights Blanket, which features a flurry of white popcorn bobbles dancing across a multicolor striped throw, and the Tunisian Checkerboard Throw, inspired by the classic board game. The whole family can help to make it (hello, pom-poms!), and you can use a portion of the throw to play checkers when you lay it out on the floor like a game board.

We have three pillows in the Warm Wishes collection, each one featuring a different crochet technique: intarsia crochet, mosaic crochet, and filet crochet.

First up, the Holiday Gnome Pillow. Celebrating all the fun of the season, this throw pillow brings whimsy, color, and even a touch of fur to your holiday décor.

Next, the Winter Mosaic Pillow, which looks very intricate, but makes use of just double crochet, single crochet, and chains in an interlocking double layer (mosaic crochet).

Finally, the Warm Lights Pillow. A chunky openwork design on this pillow allows a background color to peek through, creating a two-layer lace touch for your home décor.
