5 Holiday Knitting Ideas

Meet the Stuff It Stocking

Stuff It Stocking is one of our best-selling knitting patterns, ever. It's a basic top-down sock and it's great for knitters looking to learn how to knit socks or a fun adventure for a more experienced knitter. And it takes just one ball of each color of Wooly Worsted yarn.

There's tons of ideas and color combinations on its Ravelry page. Take a look! There is also a full knit-along tutorial right here on our blog that you can use to guide your project. It's like having a knitting teacher every step of the way. See Knit-Alongs >

Our next two favorite holiday knitting patterns are the Me and the Tree stocking cap and the Me and the Tree Scarf Set. Both come with patterns for cute coordinating christmas tree ornaments that are mini versions of the real thing! 

And to round out the holiday season (get it?) we have the Year Round Wreath. This pattern can be worked in a variety of Wooly Worsted colors for your favorite decorating season. We even have kits for it with color combinations already put together. See kits. See Year Round Wreath knitting pattern >

And lastly we have the new Turkey Says What? hat. This might be my favorite addition to the Ewe Ewe line this year! Those little dancing turkeys with orange waddles make me giggle every time I see them saying gobble gobble. Get the Turkey Says What? hat >

Little Princess Leia Hat

My friend Megan made her daughter a quick Princess Leia hat for her sweet little girl this Halloween. Megan used Wooly Worsted yarn in color Chocolate and the Family of Hats knitting pattern to make a basic children's beanie. This little Leia didn't want too much "hair" on the hat so Megan just added one bit of i-cord as an accent. The force is strong with this one!
