The holiday season is the perfect time to show off your crocheted lovelies! If you don't have any lovelies to show off, or if you do but you want some new ones, now is a great time to make some for yourself.

Festive Jeweled Neck Warmer

When I first imagined this jeweled neck warmer, I was thinking of creating a design that would be perfect for the the winter holiday season -- something that would be warm, yet pretty enough to wear out to parties, family gatherings, festivities and such.

I think this neck warmer fits the bill nicely. This wardrobe staple is almost a hybrid between a necklace and a scarf; it's warmer than a necklace would be, and it's dressier than your typical winter scarf is. It's also a quick, easy project; it won't take long to whip this up, so if you need a little time to relax amid the holiday hubbub then this pattern is the way to go.

Shawls and Wraps

Shawls are so beautiful, and the extra bit of warmth is always welcome during the winter season. Check out these free shawl patterns for some fabulous choices.

Christmas Bracelet

This cuff-style bracelet is crocheted in two colors of wire, and it's accented with contrasting yet coordinating beads. I crocheted my sample bracelet in Christmas colors -- red and green wire, with bronze-colored seed bead accents. As is, it's a great look for those of you who would like to wear it during the Christmas season. But, if you'd like it to be wearable all year long, all it would take is a color change to make the bracelet in more of an everyday look. I can see making it in silver, gold and bronze, or in other hues of colored wire.

This is another quick project that doesn't involve much of a time commitment.
