1. Berry and Pine Afghan by Melinda Miller

2. Après-Ski Poncho by Amy Gunderson
If you’re in the mood to make a crochet garment this winter but want to avoid all the shaping, seaming, and inserting of sleeves that come with most garments, this is the project you’ll want to try. Its simple, boxy shape combines with a lovely, textured stitch pattern that looks great on just about everyone. With the bulky-weight yarn (affiliate link), you might even finish this project in a weekend!
3. Nordic Tapestry Pouch by Brenda K.B. Anderson
This adorable, little pouch could store a range of your favorite things. It’s a great bag for makeup or notions, and it will be so much fun to make. Use tapestry crochet through the back loops to create its Nordic-inspired patterning.

4. Granny Hexagon Bag by Jennifer Olivarez
This stunning bag turns the classic granny motif into a hexagon. Add some shaping and leather handles, and you’ll take this bag with you everywhere you go. The two colors and filler motifs give this bag dimension and style. This project is also inspired by the historical article in the Winter issue. Be sure to check it out to see just how old the granny square pattern really is!
5. Balsam Pullover by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby
Of course, this beautiful cover project has to be on this list! This stunning sweater uses linen stitch to achieve lovely fit and drape and crochet ribbing for the sweater’s thick cuffs and turtleneck. This is a cozy sweater you’ll want to stay cuddled up in all winter long, so you better get started now!
