Weekly Gathering: Free Crochet Patterns Roundup

Weekly Gathering: 20 Handcozy Patterns for the Whole Family!

Sorry for the prolonged absence; I spent the weekend with friends in another state, and I didn’t get around to posting this crochet pattern collection last week before I left. Today, my fingers are frozen (we have a very drafty old house with single-pane windows), so perhaps I need to pick out one of these “handcozy” patterns for myself! FYI: I just made up the term “handcozy;” it just means “gloves, mittens, muffs, fingerless gloves, and basically anything that covers the bulk of your hand.” Aren’t words fun?

20 Handcozy Crochet Patterns for the Whole Family!


1. 80’s Fishnet Gloves by Bethany, at Whistle & Ivy: Looking for a light and lacy fingerless gloves pattern for the spring, summer, or fall? Make these vibrant gloves to go with a Halloween costume or in a solid color for everyday use!

11. Ruffled Muff by DesignsByKN: This muff conjures up the paintings on those old holiday postcards of the women in long skirts ice skating with their hands all snug in a muff just like this. What fun!

14. Baby Mittens by Kelly Kearney, at Bella Bambina Knits: These precious little mittens will keep your little one’s hands nice and warm, and they also have a handy tie to keep them from coming off so easily.

15. Shell Wrist Warmers by Emma, at Lulu Loves: These lovely, colorful wrist warmers are written using UK crochet terms, so substitute the US terms, if needed! Aren’t they so pretty?
