MORE Felted Holiday Projects!
As a yarn company with more than 15 feltable wool yarns, we love felted projects! And felted holiday projects especially. When the weather turns, it’s a great opportunity to create woolly, dense knits with hot water and a little agitation. This year’s post joins our previous entries in the felted genre: All-Time Favorite Projects to Felt and 9 Felted Holiday Projects. So, if this list doesn’t spark inspiration, be sure to check out those blogs as well! Also, if you’ve never felted before, familiarize yourself with our Felting Tutorial.
We had to launch this year’s list with the Snow Mittens from the Winter 2023 issue of Easy Weaving with Little Looms. Not only are these adorable mittens available in two sizes and made of Nature Spun Sport on a rigid-heddle loom (quick and easy!), but they were designed by our very own Brittany Wells! We’re so proud of Brittany for making the cover of Easy Weaving with Little Looms, but it’s no surprise—these mittens are beautiful and perfect for winter!
Grab some Burly Spun, Nature Spun Chunky, Shepherd’s Shades, Lamb’s Pride Bulky, or Lanaloft Bulky to make the Scroggins Felted Stocking. A free pattern on Ravelry, Scroggins requires less than 200 yards of bulky weight yarn!
He’s squat, he’s sweet, he comes with different hat options: what’s not to love about this Felted Snowman? Oh, he’s also made with bulky yarn and stands at just about 8 inches tall. Can’t you just see a squad of these guys standing guard over your winter mantel, all decked out in different outfits?
This little felted Solstice Bird only needs some worsted weight scraps, so stash dive for some Lamb’s Pride! The free pattern is simple and small enough to be very beginner friendly. Basically, you knit a single oval, felt it, cut it in half, and then seam it together. Knit several ovals to make Solstice Birds as gifts this holiday season!
These Felted Stars knit up in a cinch and are great for using up yarn scraps. While the pattern calls for worsted weight yarn, you could make these in any feltable wool yarn weight depending on the size of your star. We love these for hanging in windows, on wreaths and trees, and for adding a finishing touch to gifts this season.
Another project that invites the knitter to choose their preferred yarn weight, the felted Sleepy Mouse is worked in the round and dons a matching hat and scarf set. Make it with fingering, sport, or DK-weight yarn for an ornament, or size up to make a doll. The pattern calls for less than 50 yards of feltable wool, so yarn scraps will do!
Like the Solstice Bird, the Felted Leaves Garland is a perfect project if you’re new to felting. Each leaf is crocheted as a square, felted, and then cut into the leaf shape. Instructions for a felted brand are also included so you can create a garland for your winter mantel or weave your garland into a wreath.
Knit with Lamb’s Pride Bulky, the Winter Wonderland project creates either ornaments or coasters. The squares look machine felted, but the snowflakes are definitely needle felted. The designer says these are a great project for beginners to needle felting!
