Feeling chilly? We’ve got the perfect solution – wrap up warm and get your needles moving with these seven free wintery knitting patterns!

Winter is a knitter’s delight – you have every excuse you need to be curled up with your needles knitting something to keep you warm! We’ve found you seven divine patterns that are absolutely free to explore!

Simple Yet Effective by Tin Can Knits


What a dreamy knit! This simple yet very effective cowl is perfect for that special skein you’ve been saving! Here it’s knitted in The Yarn Collective’s delectable Bloomsbury DK, but any DK yarn will do. Tin Can Knits’ pattern is, as usual, beautifully written and easy to follow.

Faux Fair Isle Set in Blue Sky Fibers Bulky

Faux Fair Isle Winter knitting set

Give your winter apparel a zing of color with this deliciously snug accessory set, which includes mittens, scarf and hat, by the fabulous Blue Sky Fibers. Crafted in their plump cozy super bulky alpaca and wool blend the set sees clever faux fair isle detailing on the cuffs and edges of each accessory for impressive results. Especially great for those starting to introduce colorwork into their knitting.

Essential Cable Sock from Paintbox Yarns


If you haven’t tried the Paintbox Yarns Socks yarn yet, you’re in for a treat! There are four themes (Pixel, Fair Isle, Zebra, and Stripes) with seven shades in each theme! This is one of two FREE patterns to download – an essential sock pattern with a cable!

Tasseled Garter Stitch Color Block Scarf

This thick and beautiful scarf by Anne Weil will keep you toasty this winter! Using classic garter stitch this is an ideal project for beginners or satisfyingly quick for advanced crafters. Made in Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, you can pick and mix your favorite color combinations for your perfect color-block mix.

Fichu bleu by Orlane S

Fichu shawl

When critics tell us shawls are not on trend, we laugh! There is nothing more fabulous than swirling a huge shawl around your shoulders to keep gloriously warm – and this is the kind of delicious shawl that makes winter knitting so much fun! The Fichu bleu shawl is knitted in sport weight yarn – we suggest something deliciously soft like MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino, which will hug you right back!

Limelight Stirrup Socks in Lion Brand

These knitted stirrup socks from Lion Brand are just fabulous! Packed with detail in this gorgeous Fair Isle design, these are brilliant for intermediate knitters. Keep those ankles warm in these heather and lime shades in Lion Brand Wool Ease aran.

Rib Knitted Throw in Loopy Mango Big Loop

Snuggly is an understatement with this unbelievably thick ribbed blanket. Perfect for wrapping up on chilly winter walks, snuggling up on the couch or draping over your bed as the ultimate winter warmer. For the ultimate statement why not craft in one of Loopy Mango’s Big Loop merino’s juicy statement colors or keep elegantly understated with demure shades.
