We’ve passed December and the daylight hours are finally starting to get longer, but the bitter cold has yet to take the message and go away. No problem – we’ve rounded up a number of ingenious (and absurd) crochet makes to keep your extremities nice and toasty. Even if they’re not to your taste, the comedy value will be well worth the effort.
A project to keep your nose warm
Your nose is notoriously hard to keep warm in the winter without completely wrapping your head, mummy-style. So what better solution than to crochet a personalised little pouch for it? Thank goodness – we no longer need to look silly with cold, red noses.
A project to keep your chin warm
Why settle for a regular snood or scarf when you can make the style statement of the century? The more unusual it would be for you to have a beard, the better, but you might have a sudden craving for beer, steaks and putting together Ikea furniture badly.
A project to keep your ankles warm
Scarves keep necks warm, ergo scarves keeping ankles warm is a logical next step… Socks? What are they?... Alright, we admit it, ankle scarves aren’t really a thing. Still, the trend nobody needed or asked for is a great way to use up extra yarn.
A project to keep your head warm
When the boring beanies just aren’t enough, it’s time to get out your crochet hooks and make something truly impressive, like these foodie makes. The stuffing will insulate your head, and the hilarious appearance is guaranteed to break the ice. Time to go meet the new neighbours.
A project to keep your face warm
When the cold becomes too much to deal with, why not just cover your whole face? You get to stay comfortable and scare the mailman at the same time. Bonus! These funny squid hats are rocketing in popularity, and it’s easy to why – warmth and hilarity in one tentacled package.
A project to keep your entire body warm
Here’s a bonus project for the knitters out there! These massively-chunky catsuits and dresses will definitely keep you warm as you go about your day. Gloomy, bitter weather? No problem. A trip to the arctic? No problem with one of these slowly consuming you. Can’t see past the huge collar? Little bit of a problem.
