I have been waiting for a while to put this technique into a pattern. With the opportunity to design the Marly Scarf and matching hat also came the opportunity to use this gorgeous technique. In all honesty I sat down to make a unisex scarf …

So many designers have so many pretty patterns available for the festive season. We decided that we wanted to do a 12 Days of Christmas Round-up for you guys to showcase some of these fabulous patterns! So we have teamed up with 10 fabulous designers to bring you a round-up of 16 patterns that you can get hooking and complete before Christmas.
If you have a couple of extra gifts still to make look no further!
Our 12 Days of Christmas Round-up has you covered! They are cute and quick projects that you will LOVE working on.
Some of these patterns are free anyway. But some of them have been specially issued with a coupon code and a limited number of free downloads, with big discounts for everyone after that just for our Round-up! How awesome is that??
A note for You:
It would be wonderful if you could show all of these patterns a little on Ravelry or write a positive comment on the blogs, even if you don’t manage to get a free copy! Where I have put a code between ‘ and ‘ please do not use the marks when applying the coupon codes!
So lets get started!
Crystal Ridge Ear Warmers by Canoe Mtn Designs
Audrey lives in Valemount BC Canada. Crystal Ridge is just west of town on the side of the mountains. It’s a popular place to go hiking, and riding snowmobiles in the winter and inspired the name of these ear warmers. Audrey is known for her hats, scarves, cowls and mittens, with lots of sets also available. Her patterns are gorgeous and easy to follow!
Audrey used 148yds of Patons Sheland Chunky for these. “I love this yarn 🙂 It’s so soft and easy to work with! The yarn makes the ear warmer super cozy and warm.”

X-Stitch Wristers by X Stitch Crochet
You can use any yarn with the appropriate hook size for this pattern. It is easily adapted to fit anyone. Kim has provided the information that you need to do this within the pattern.
This is a cute design. The wristers will certainly stop the draft going up your coat sleeve on those chillier days!
I love this style of glove for gift ideas. They are so practical; wear them whilst driving, keep your fingers free for using your phone and you can get into your purse or handbag without having to take off gloves all of the time. Don’t get me wrong – I also love my gloves and mittens! But when you are having a busy day getting chores done, this style is so practical!

I love Crystal’s designs! If you follow us on FaceBook you will have seen me share one or two of her patterns and I am thrilled she has wanted to join us in this 12 Day of Christmas round-up!
Crystal has this very cute Santa or elf hat pattern free on her blog in sizes NB-adult. No-one need go without their hat this Christmas!
“The Curly Elf Hat can be worn either down and long or curled over the top of the head. I think it’s simply the cutest either way. If you wanted to be really jolly you could add a jingle bell to the tip too. This bottom up hat pattern is written for sizes NB-Adult. Made with the appropriately named “Metallic Christmas” color from Hobby Lobby – you will need 150-350 yds worsted weight yarn and 5mm Hook (H) for the hat and a 4mm (G) for band trim.”

Santa hat by Krazy Kabbage
Hats are super popular at this time of year, so why not show you another one of our favourites? Our final hat pattern in the 12 Days of Christmas Round-Up is from Krazy Kabbage. I love the fact that this pompom is crocheted!!

Materials needed are a medium weight yarn such as Red Heart Super Saver and a I/9 (5.5mm) and H/8 (5.00 mm) hooks.

The Circle Clutch by Crochet With Mary Beth
The front flap of the bag comes down far enough to keep the bag closed so you don’t need any hardware or buttons. You just need yarn, which I know you have plenty of! Ha-ha.
When the bag is open the full glory of the design is revealed. The complete circle is visible from the back, thus the name. So be prepared for oooohs and aaaahs when you reach in to grab your phone or crochet hook.

The Coffee Cozy Sweater Wrap by Sweet Potato 3
If you have followed Sunflower Cottage Crochet any lately you will not have escaped hearing about Sweet Potato 3 and its designer Christine. Christine is the brainchild (and all-out awesome lady) who brought us the Crochet Cancer Challenge in October! I am thrilled to include her in the 12 Days of Christmas Round-up.
It’s a fun and quick pattern that can be great for last minute gifts this holiday season. The crochet pattern uses the basic single crochet stitch but each cozy uses it in a different way so they all have different textures you can try. This is a great pattern for beginners or a fun one to whip out quickly for the more experienced. The Coffee Cozy Sweater Wrap will fit most 8-12 oz coffee cups or taller 16 oz mugs. The project used about 25 yards of yarn so you can use up your stash pile 😉 We love a good stash buster! Add a cozy to a new coffee mug filled with hot cocoa or coffee accessories for a great gift package.
The Coffee Cozy Sweater is always free on Sweet Potato 3’s blog here.
