Warm Winter Gear!

How's your winter shaping up? Mine is filled with snow, snow and more snow. And the temperature outside at my place is around 9 degrees. Nice. Needless to say, I could use some more cozy winter wearables for my, the hubby and our little guys!

In light of all the white stuff, I was inspired to gather some easy knitting and crochet projects to share with you. Each of these patterns is fairly simple, straightforward and can be completed in an evening. Whether you are knitting or crochet beginner wanting to try a project perfect for winter, or a master wanting something soothing to work on, we have a free pattern for you!

Cozy Patterns For the Guys!

Okay, technically all of the featured patterns this week could be for either gender...but since we mostly tend to focus on stuff for the ladies, I figured it was time to make something for the men. With the temperature continuing to drop and snow falling non-stop (in my neck of the woods), I have a hard time believing guys don't want to stay warm too.

And there's no reason they shouldn't look good doing it. In the spirit of keeping your special man (or boys) toasty warm, here are five free patterns to get you started. The best part: you'll have fun knitting or crocheting these cozy items near a roaring a fire, while watching your favorite show!

Comfy Cozy Cowl

Men's Earflap Hat

Warm & Cozy Cowl

Fast & Easy Men's Cap

Cable Scarf

However you choose to keep your guys warm this winter, do try one of our free knitting or crochet patterns! Connect with us on Facebook to share your finished object photos or visit Craftown for many more cozy patterns!
