As the weather cools down and we start spending more and more time inside, I find myself sitting down to crochet more and more. I’ll grab a blanket (one I’ve made myself, of course), a cup of hot coffee or tea, and my yarn and hooks and get to work.

Whether I’m working on a project for a loved one’s holiday gift or a decoration for my home, it doesn’t take long before my holiday spirit kicks in and my love for this time of year moves to the forefront of my mind.

There are so many different projects to work on this time of year from big cozy blankets to mittens and socks and even snowflake decorations! I love this 6-pointed snowflake tutorial from as it is super versatile. You can attach it to a string for an ornament for your tree or string several of them to be a beautiful snowflake garland for your mantel; the options are endless.
