What better way to ring in the new year than with a fresh collection of crochet patterns with my friends at Hobbii! I’ve had the pleasure of completing one-off projects with Hobbii over the years and have always enjoyed working with them, so I jumped at the chance to collaborate for their Hobbii Plus program.

As the chill of winter sets in, I like to fill my projects bags with cozy home decor and accessory projects. When creating this mini-collection of patterns with Hobbii, I dug in my vault of TLYC patterns for some of my favorites that could use a refresh. I also wanted to offer a beginner-friendly mix of traditional crochet and Tunisian crochet patterns.
The TLYC x Hobbii Winter 2022 collection combines 4 classic TL Yarn Crafts patterns with one new creation, the Quinn Blanket. Each of the classic patterns was chosen for its ease and speediness. These patterns range from beginner to advanced beginner and can all be completed within a day or a long weekend. Their simplicity pairs well with the Hobbii yarns I used to recreate them in.
Makers have two options for accessing the patterns within this collection:
- OPTION 1: Purchase the patterns individually. All patterns in this collection are available independently on the Hobbii webite. They range in price from $5 to $7.50. Each purchase grants you a PDF version of the pattern. Get them here.

The TLYC x Hobbii Winter 2022 collection features 3 traditional crochet and 2 Tunisian crochet patterns, with a mix of wearables, accessories, and home decor items. All of the patterns are beginner-friendly and include written instruction in a beautifully formatted pattern.
Let’s take a closer look at each piece:
The Mega Pom Beanie
Fun Fact: The Mega Pom Beanie was the first pattern I ever designed. This worsted weight textured hat features a wide brim, extra long body for a slouchy effect, and a playful pom pom. Constructed from the top down, this hat tops off any casual outfit from fall to spring.
Yarn Used: Tweed Delight (category 4, worsted weight)
The Ada Shawl
The Ada Shawl is an oversized triangle wrap made for cold trips for more movie snacks. Two colors of worsted wight yarn are stitched using the Tunisian simple stitch for smooth texture and meditative making. With over 60 colors available in the original yarn, the color combinations are endless.
Yarn Used: Amigo Chunky (category 5, bulky weight)
The Sherbet Afghan
There’s nothing quite like hunkering down under a chunky handmade blanket when the temperature drops. I love the Sherbet Afghan for so many reasons – it’s the perfect size for a solo TV binge, it makes a perfect scrap buster, and the mix of colors makes this piece easy to customize for your home. The calming stitch pattern and simple border make this a polished, easy peasy project.
Yarn Used: Amigo Giga (category 6, super bulky weight)
The Hot Cocoa Poncho
If you’re looking to take your makes into the wild, try the Hot Cocoa Poncho. This elevated poncho includes a textured body thanks to the Honeycomb stitch, along with a striped cowl neck to keep you toasty during brisk walks through the farmer’s market. Style this layer with your favorite distressed jeans and a long-sleeved top for an effortlessly chic look.
Yarn Used: Divina (category 4 worsted weight)
The Quinn Blanket
The star of this collection is the Quinn Blanket. This crochet patchwork afghan is worked in 5 different colors of lightweight, buttery soft cotton/acrylic yarn. The random nature of the blocks means that each blanket will be unique and cherished by the recipient. Have fun choosing colors for this blanket and get ready to wow everyone at the baby shower.
Yarn Used: Acacia (category 3, DK weight)
