Top 10 Most Popular Knitting + Crochet Patterns in 2016

It's the end of 2016 and here's what were the most popular knitting and crochet patterns this year. There's a whole range of techniques and styles and there's a lot to choose from!

Top baby blanket knitting patterns: 

Both the Buttercup Baby Blanket and the Peek A Blue Blanket are easy knitting patterns for blankets that show off a few stitches in a sampler style. They both features Ewe Ewe's Ewe So Sporty washable merino yarn.

Favorite scarf and shawl knitting patterns:

The Nectar Scarf has a simple bias knit design that uses three colors in a unique set of colors in constantly changing stripes. The Double Deco is a much larger and more generous shawl that meshes four colors to create a modern wrap using Ewe So Sporty yarn.

Top worsted-weight crochet patterns:

We love crochet around here! The Wearever Wrap is the best-seller once again and our newer Show Off Shrug is turning heads, too. Made in Wooly Worsted yarn, these two shoulder-warmers will hug you in style.

Top hat knitting patterns:

A good, basic beanie never goes out of style. That's why the Family of Hats which has a hat for everyone made our best-seller list yet again! The Sand & Sea hat is also at the top of the charts because of it's simple but fun-to-knit Fair Isle patterning.

Top mitts to keep your fingers warm:

Mittens are the best. My hands are always cold and I have to say, the Miss Match Mittens are my favorite thing to grab when I walk the dog this time of year. And, I've also been known to sit at my desk wearing the Techie Twosome (which may be how they got their name!) :) 

Get the patterns!

Summer is a great time to knit. Toss one of these small projects in your beach bag and secretly prep for winter while catching some rays. These lightweight cowls are perfect for when the mornings start to get cooler. You'll be ready!

The Rush cowl features alternating stripes of color and lace. Find your perfect color combo of Ewe So Sporty yarn. This one uses Teal and Aquamarine.

Rocky Ridge Cowl knitting pattern is a one ball project! It has a simple lace pattern that is great for a beginner looking to move on to a new challenge because it's not too big. Try it in your favorite color of Ewe So Sporty yarn.

Double the squishiness here! The Color Theory Cowl holds the yarn doubled to create a tonal color shift around the loop. This one uses soft colors but bold colors look great, too!

The Snow Business Cowl can either be knit as a snuggly neckwarmer like the one shown here or sized up into a larger cowl. You choose!

Look boho chic in the Bohemian Grove cowl. Fun fringe is where it's at! This cowl comes together quickly and uses two balls of your favorite color of Ewe So Sporty yarn.

A soft and subtle pattern makes the Freckles Infinity Scarf an elegant choice. It combines basic knits and purls to create a playful dot pattern across the fabric. Pick your favorite color of Ewe So Sporty yarn and make yours now.

Wearever Wrap Crochet Shawl Pattern

The Wearever Wrap is one of the most popular patterns here at Ewe Ewe and totally the most popular crochet pattern. It's a fun-to-work half granny square design and uses 6 colors of Wooly Worsted yarn

The color combinations that people have done are out of this world. This Berry dream by ivillarreal1997 on Ravelry is a show-stopper!

And I am into these blues and blacks by RevengeMe. I think I could rock this combo with a pair of jeans and a simple white t-shirt.

And check out this colorful masterpiece! Stripespolkadots knocked it out of the park with this bright and punchy rendition. So fun!
