The Boyfriend Scarf Crochet Pattern

Thanksgiving is over and it’s crunch time. Christmas is right around the corner! It’s time to gather any last minute presents you may have been putting off.

I don’t know about you, but I have some family members where shopping for them is kind of a mystery. Luckily, I can rely on crochet to come up with a thoughtful gift idea. This year, one of my favorite gifts is this men’s scarf knitting pattern.

The Boyfriend Scarf is all about subtle details that look polished and distinguished.

The whole of the scarf is worked using the detailed ribbed stitch for added texture. It’s a good length too, perfect for wrapping up in. The detail that really set this scarf apart though, is the yarn choice.  

Plymouth Hot Cakes have built-in color changes. It creates color shifts naturally throughout your projects. This particular project calls for a Grey/Burgundy mix yarn which has shades of cream too. It’s an acrylic wool blend, worsted weight. Perfect for a cozy scarf this season.

This scarf is great for those family members who are hard to shop for. This is a practical, unique gift that they can use for years to come. Make one for your partner or your grandfather.

You can get the Burgundy Plymouth hotcake in the crochet kit here. Every kit has its very own hot cake and a digital pdf pattern. Everything you need to start making this stylish scarf!

Family Beanie Hats Crochet Pattern

This family beanie hats pattern is so cute and I love the idea of a whole family with matching hats. #crochetbeanie #crochethat #crochetpattern #crochetlove #crochetaddict

Family Beanie Hats Crochet Pattern

It’s chilly outside these days so a beanie hat is a must-have necessity. If you’re eager to learn how to crochet a hat to keep your head warm this winter, look no further than our family beanie hat crochet pattern.

Perfect for the entire family, this easy crochet pattern makes a thoughtful gift for everyone in your family this season. This crochet beanie is affordable to make and since it’s unisex, it makes a perfect men’s crochet hat too.

I made my crochet hats in colors that look great on everyone too: cream and navy. The adult size is in a rich blue with white trim and a white pom pom. Then, to switch things up a little I made the children’s crochet hat pattern (which typically fits 2-6yrs) in cream with navy trim.

This free crochet hat pattern is so cute and I love the idea of a whole family with matching hats. It’s like a crafty version of the Brady Bunch.

If you want to get started on these little presents, you can grab a crochet kit I put together here.  Your kit will come with 1 skein of cream yarn and 1 skein of navy and a detailed digital pdf pattern.

The cascade 220 superwash merino yarn is 100% merino wool but it’s so soft. It’s not scratchy like most wool which means it won’t irritate sensitive skin. It’s also machine washable, so it’s easy to care for the whole family.

These crochet beanie hats are perfect for a family gift or nice stocking stuffers. Just pick up your kit, grab your hook and start creating!

12 Days of Crochet Gift Giving – Easy-to-Make Holiday Gifts

The holidays can be hectic and even the most organized person can struggle to keep up. With family dinners, and coordinating travel plans it’s inevitable that something might slip through the cracks.

In case you ran out of time or forgot a present here or there, I’ve put together this creative list of easy-to-make holiday gift ideas. They’re quick to make and really unique.

You can make these projects in a weekend, and some of them in a couple of hours. But they look detailed and your loved ones will be grateful to receive a handmade gift.

There are lots to choose from, so see which ones stand out to you!
