The chilly season is officially here which means we're in full winter mode here at Mollie. Since our 32 autumn cross stitch charts did so well, we thought we'd make seasonal cross-stitch collections so you never go without a project to start. We've done spring cross stitch patterns and summer cross stitch patterns so now it's time for some winter cross stitch patterns! We've got a mix of free and paid-for charts so no matter your budget you can get stitching this month. If you're new to the world of cross stitch don't worry. We have a complete guide to cross stitch for beginners here on Gathered to help you pick up this wonderful craft. Without further ado, here's our round up of over 50 winter cross stitch patterns, featuring everything from snowy woodlands to cosy scenes and Scandi designs. Enjoy!
