Winter Knits

I create my winter knits out of a variety of fibers. Some are acrylic or acrylic blends that can be machine washed and dried. Others are 100% wool, for improved warmth and that wonderful, traditional feel. Winter knit sets are wonderful gifts for friends and family. Easy to fit, and useful, you can request the color(s) and fiber of your choice.


Regular winter knits are classic designs that I use over and over again. They may be in stock in some colors and sizes. If you prefer something more unique, scroll down to see ideas for custom winter knits.

lined helmet with earflaps

Lined Helmet with Earflaps

This is an incredibly cozy hat, knitted for someone who works at a tree nursery and is outdoors in all weather. The outer layer is wool for warmth, while the inner layer is acrylic to avoid any risk of itchiness.

blue snowflake headband with earflaps

Snowflake Headband

Like the helmet to the left, this headband is wool on the outer layer and acrylic on the inside. The earflaps insure that there's enough coverage for wintry weather.  I also knitted a red snowflake headband, which can be seen in the Winter Knits Gallery.

mixed black and gray headband

Black & Gray Headband

The mottled appearance of this headband was achieved by knitting with 3 strands of thin yarn held together: 1 black, 1 dark gray, and 1 light gray.
