4 knitting projects to keep you warm over winter

It’s that time of year, again. Your summer shoulder shrugs are being put away and your heavy knits are coming out.

But we’re always on the lookout for new projects to keep us busy over the winter months.

We’ve found a mixture of patterns, some free and some you can buy instore, to give you some yarnspiration.

So dust off those needles and give some of these a go. As always, if you have any trouble, talk to our knitting experts – contact us here.


Have you thought of knitting a mermaid snuggle sack?

A what? We hear you ask.

Mermaids are very popular right now, so why not dress up like one to keep you warm.

Your daughter or granddaughter would love to snuggle up on the sofa with a good book and a mermaid blanket.

Try this pattern with a super chunky yarn for the coziest blanket under the sea.

Knit a kid’s cardi and spread the love (and warmth)

This pattern is a favourite at the shop. It’s cute and colourful, but super simple to make.

We can make on up for you but where would be the fun in that?

Come in and grab the pattern – we’ll help you knit it up.

Get your hands on some Baby Haven for the project, too.
