Prepare for Winter Weather with Our Free Patterns

January 17 , 2019

NORTHBROOK, Ill. — Survive Winter Storm Harper and make progress on your New Year’s resolutions at the same time with the help of AllFreeCrochet and AllFreeKnitting’s free pattern library.

Winter Storm Harper is expected to bring a lot of snow to a large area of the country through the weekend, and the Midwest is gearing up for it. Winter storm watches and warnings and winter weather advisories have been posted by the National Weather Service from South Dakota eastward through the southern Great Lakes and into the Northeast. Cities included in the winter storm watches or warnings include Chicago, Milwaukee, Boston, Hartford, Providence, Albany, Buffalo, Cleveland and Des Moines.

Winter weather advisories and warnings are also posted throughout the Mountain West, which will feel the effects of Harper on Thursday.

Forecasters are urging residents to take precautions, including wearing layers and a hat and gloves. For those of you that might want to make your own hat or gloves, check out the free pattern library at AllFreeCrochet.com and AllFreeKnitting.com. Whether you’re looking to stay warm, learn a new skill, or improve your health, these free knit and crochet patterns can help! Recent studies have found people who participate in arts and crafts such as knitting and crochet “feel happier, calmer, and more energetic the next day.” The healing benefits range from simply calming you down and easing your stress to potentially relieving depression and reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists now believe that “crafts, such as crocheting, can help stimulate that dopamine release to allow us to feel happier and better about ourselves.”

Visit AllFreeKnitting and AllFreeCrochet to find a variety of free pattern inspiration from expert designers and top yarn companies including Kristi Simpson, Heidi Gustad, Red Heart Yarn, and more. Patterns feature high resolution color photographs and step-by-step instructions; some include helpful video tutorials so you can follow along as you go.
