It’s Leopard Week on my Instagram page once again! Last year, I did a weeklong focus on my leopard print patterns and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. So this year, I thought it’d be fun do a little roundup of some old patterns, plus the highlights of some new patterns coming right here! Plus you can grab the printable Luxe Leopard Beanie-Bulky for free all week long (keep reading to find out how!). So I hope you enjoy exploring the Luxe Leopard Collection with me this week!

About the Collection

If you’ve purchased any of Luxe Leopard patterns, you already know that these most of patterns are worked from a graph using waistcoat stitch. This method gives each of these patterns a fun, knit look. I used the same method across the entire collection (with the exception of a few patterns), but customized the graphs a bit for each pattern.


The Luxe Leopard Beanie – Worsted

About the Pattern

The Luxe Leopard Beanie in worsted weight was modeled after the original Luxe Leopard Beanie in bulky. As I got more and more questions about how to adjust it for lighter yarn, I decided it was time to revisit the pattern. This beanie still has 8 sizes, but in new stitch counts to correspond to worsted weight yarn. And since there’s more stitches per beanie, I included an additional “petite print” chart that features a smaller spot leopard print pattern.

The Luxe Leopard Ornament

About the Pattern

What can liven up a Christmas tree better than some leopard print accents?! The Luxe Leopard Ornament is the perfect addition to your Christmas tree. Or add them to a stunning wreath for some more stylish holiday decor.

This bauble style ornament is designed with bulky yarn so it works up pretty quickly. The finished ornament is a 3″ round ball. Add some stylish finishes with a bow or other embellishments.

The Luxe Leopard Stocking

About the Pattern

The Luxe Leopard Stocking is a pretty fun take on a Christmas stocking. This pattern uses bulky weight yarn and can be made in two colors or three. The dense stitch makes for a nice sturdy stocking (lots of presents!). The finished stocking measures right about 6″ wide and 18″ tall!

The Luxe Leopard Mittens

About the Pattern

The Luxe Leopard Mittens are a brand new pattern that I’ve been cooking up! This pattern written in adult size and will be available in bulky or worsted weight. These mittens use 3 strands of yarn to create a tri-color leopard effect. And the added yarn strand makes for extra warm finished product. These mittens will be released both on my blog and in my shops by the end of the month!

The Luxe Leopard Mittens are now available for free on my blog! Find the free pattern here. You can also purchase the PDF in my Ravelry or Etsy shops.


The Luxe Leopard Cowl

About the Pattern

If you know my designs, you’ll know that I love making matching sets. Once the beanie was finished, I decided it needed a matching accessory! So the cowl is designed in the same Color Made Easy yarn and works from the same, slightly larger, graph. It is written in adult size, approximately 15″wide x 10″high, but easily adjustable to customize to your own preferences.

The Luxe Leopard Beanie – Bulky

Luxe Leopard Beanie in Bulky

About the Pattern

The bulky version of this beanie was actually the first of the collection. This beanie is made with aran weight/bulky 5 yarn. I love how quickly this hat works up. It’s available in Newborn to Adult size, so you can make one for everyone! Waistcoat stitch creates a pretty dense fabric, so this hat is nice and warm. I originally designed this hat using Lion Brand Color Made Easy, which I think is a great yarn for working waistcoat stitch. It’s got a great texture and the yarn slides so easily. (Note: Brava Bulky from WeCrochet is a another great substitute.)

How to Get this Pattern

You can find the free version of this pattern that includes 4 sizes (Baby, Toddler, Child, Adult) here.

There are two PDF’s available for purchase of this pattern. The extended version contains two graphs, one for the baby sizes and one for the larger sizes. Plus the Valentine’s Day special, the “Love Leopard” bonus graph. It also includes stitch counts for 8 different sizes. You can purchase the full version of this pattern on Ravelry or Etsy.

Or if you only want the adult version as PDF printable, you can purchase it for a discounted price as well (Ravelry or Etsy).


The Luxe Leopard Headband

About the Pattern

The Luxe Leopard Headband is a cozy ear warmer made with the classic leopard print style of this collection. It can be made double thick to be extra warm or as a single layer headband for a slightly cooler style. This pattern is adjustable to make in different sizes with a chart to help you get the right fit. And you can finish this headband in a variety of different ways to get just the style you want.

Luxe Leopard Bonnet

About the Pattern

The Luxe Leopard Bonnet is an adorable pixie-style bonnet designed just for your little one! This bonnet is available from Newborn to big kids and uses a half double crochet stitch to work up just a smidge faster than some of the single crochet pieces of this collection.
