Tasty Trimmings For Your Home

Classic red and white swirls and diagonals adorn these cozy blankets made for snuggling. But just because these samples are in red and white doesn’t mean you have to stick with those colorways. Think about peppermint gum – that’s usually in blue packaging! Nothing’s stopping you from working these fabulous designs in other colors to match your decor.

Minty Gifts For Yourself Or Others

Some of these free peppermint crochet and knit patterns are really quick gifts, perfect for last-minute guests. If you have more time, maybe you’d prefer them in other colors. Red and white isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so make them to suit the person you’re gifting to.

Switch colors on the baby blanket to a shade suitable for baby or the happy parents-to-be. Pets don’t have favorite colors for a neckerchief…or, do they??? Anyway, choose the colors you like or use up scraps for some of these smaller projects.

Giving a gift of plants in the summer? Why not give a peppermint plant and make a plant pot cozy to go with it? If you’re gifting any of these…add in a pack of gum or a few mints as an extra treat.
