You can knit many small and practical things for everyday life yourself by using our knitting patterns for accessories.
Various knitting patterns for accessories
Are you a beginner in knitting? Then our knitting patterns for accessories are a good way to knit small and very easy to make things yourself. It doesn't have to be a jumper with a complicated knitting pattern - a simple necklace or scarf would be ideal to start with. With the different accessories you can spice up your outfit or create practical everyday things from natural materials.
Our accessory knitting tutorials are perfect if you're looking for a personalised gift for your loved ones. Let yourself be inspired and give your friends or family something practical and beautiful at the same time - perhaps for a birthday, as a small Christmas present or for another occasion. At Crazypatterns, you can choose the knitting patterns for accessories that best suit your skills.
Examples for knitting accessories
Whether you are looking for simple knitting patterns for accessories that even novice knitters can do well, or more challenging patterns that are reserved for knitting professionals - at Crazypatterns you will find the right patterns for knitting accessories for every level of difficulty.
Here are some examples of knitting accessories. Choose something suitable for your next knitting project.

Knitted necklaces and other jewellery
You don't like expensive jewellery made of gold, silver or platinum, but prefer natural variations? Then how about knitted jewellery for a change? Not only is it much cheaper, it also looks much more natural and creative. At Crazypatterns you will find numerous knitting patterns for accessories with which you can easily knit your own desired necklace. For example, short necklaces, medium-length or long necklaces. A particularly beautiful example is the knotted necklace, which skilfully draws the eye to itself. You can also knit your own small or large pendants to go with your necklace.
Necklace loop - fashionable and chic at the same time
The loop is currently all the rage. This is a round scarf that is worn loosely around the neck. Instead of the warming version for chilly days, you can also knit a necklace loop as a special accessory. Vary the pattern and colours to have the right loop jewellery ready for different outfits.
Knitted collar for more elegance
Necklaces are worn very tightly and are also used to accessorise outfits. Create your very own look by knitting small, narrow or slightly wider collars with the matching knitting patterns for accessories.
Scarf - a classic among accessories
Of course, the classic scarf is still a popular accessory that many people don't want to do without in winter and on chilly days in autumn. Whether you're looking for a thick or thin scarf, or one with a fancy pattern, knit a scarf with the Crazypatterns accessory knitting tutorials.
Knitted bow for a playful look
Do you love to add playful details to your outfit? Then a small knitted bow would be a great choice to spice up your look. You can attach the bow to other garments or use it to embellish a scarf or bag. Add a visual highlight with a coloured bow.
Mobile phone case - cosy packaging for your smartphone
Small scratches and cracks in the display don't have to be. Instead of just relying on the protective film, you can protect your smartphone even better against damage in the future with a knitted mobile phone cover. And the best thing about it is that the cover looks really chic and you can create your own individual piece when you use knitting patterns for accessories from Crazypatterns.
Protect your hair with soft hairbands
Another nice idea for practical everyday things are hairbands. Here you can knit accessories that are often used with hair. Create as many hairbands as you like with our knitting patterns for accessories. The advantage of knitted models is that they don't put a lot of strain on the hair like classic elastics, but are effectively gentle thanks to the soft materials. Broken hair is a thing of the past.
Bracelets are also very popular accessories. They come in many different materials. In addition to the classic precious metals (e.g. gold, silver), you can wear ones made of leather or the knitted version. Find the right knitting patterns for accessories, for example for a narrow or wide bracelet in the desired design.
Cosy knitted hats for cold days
In winter, we lose most of our heat through our heads, so we need a cosy hat. Why not use knitting patterns for accessories to knit a few beautiful hat variants? Whether in plain colours, with a pattern or as a reversible hat - there are no limits to your creativity. The popular pom-pom hats are always a great idea for children.
Arm warmers - for warm arms
In the cold season, scarfs, hats and arm warmers are used as warming accessories. Cuffs are simply pulled over the forearms and serve as a substitute for long woollen jumpers. The ideal combination is a short jumper with chic knitted cuffs that are colour-coordinated with your outfit.
Wrap for the little ones
Do you always want to have your baby very close to you? Then why not choose a soft wrap that will keep your baby close to your body at all times.
Tip: Take a look at our "New products" section. Here you will find the latest knitting patterns for accessories and other knitted, sewn or crocheted textiles.
Why knitting accessories makes sense
Our knitting patterns for accessories offer you several advantages. Not only do you save money, but you also give yourself or others a treat.
Here you will find an overview of all the advantages of knitting:
Quickly finished: Most accessories only need very few materials and can be knitted in a short time. Necklaces and bracelets are the quickest to knit, but scarves, loops and hairbands can also be knitted quickly with a little practice. The small accessories are therefore also ideal if you are still looking for a gift and want to create something in a flash.
Success after only a short time: The simple knitting patterns for accessories quickly create the feeling of having achieved something, especially for absolute knitting beginners. Ideal for beginners, if you want to have something tangible to show as quickly as possible.
Practical and inexpensive companions: Knitting accessories is easy, practical and inexpensive. You don't have to buy as many accessories and you have many practical things for everyday life at your fingertips.
Simple: As a rule, knitting patterns for accessories are uncomplicated and easy to follow, even for beginners.
Individual: With self-knitted accessories you stand out from the crowd, because only you wear these individual pieces.
Tip: Use different knitting techniques to add variety to your accessories. You can find the right knitting techniques for different pieces in our other knitting tutorials. Alternatively, find out more about the latest ideas in one of our YouTube tutorials or on our Facebook profile.

What do you need to know to knit accessories?
As a complete knitting beginner, you might be wondering what the different stitches are all about. No problem, before you start knitting accessories, you can get an overview in our forum.

Crazypatterns' patterns also give you tips on which techniques and materials are important for each project. Use the advice in the tutorial and get more detailed information in our community if you need more support.
Which materials are the right ones?
If you want to knit different accessories, you will need several knitting needles and yarns in different thicknesses. Depending on whether you want to knit thin or thicker versions, it's best to keep a small stock of your favourite yarns. Accessories that come into direct contact with the skin should be as easy to wash as possible. Try yarns made of cotton and polyacrylic or virgin wool to find the best varieties for knitting accessories. If you don't want to focus on the warming aspect of your accessories, you can also use thinner yarns.
Tip: Knitting needles in different thicknesses and matching yarns are often available in inexpensive sets for knitting beginners, so you can order the basic equipment at a lower price.

Why knit a stitch sample?
Before starting any major knitting project, we recommend that you make a stitch test. This way you can check exactly how many rows and stitches are needed to ensure that your accessory will turn out perfectly and that you can make your patterns available for download later with the correct information. The stitch gauge will vary depending on the thickness and material of the yarn, the gauge of the guarantor and needle, and the knitting pattern you choose. 10 x 10 cm is sufficient to make your gauge. Then use a ruler to determine the number of rows and stitches. These should correspond with the information in the knitting patterns for accessories.
