The traditional Christmas song “Silver and Gold” isn’t on heavy rotation this time of year like a lot other songs. (If I hear “Frosty the Snowman” one more time today…)
But when it comes time to think about holiday knitting patterns, those silver and gold colors are often the first we turn to. They’re classic, often sparkly, and are versatile enough to match nearly any holiday party outfit.
Silver and gold don’t discriminate when it comes to holiday knitting patterns, whether you want a basic pair of gloves or just a shimmery wrap to go over your party dress.
Ready to show off some sparkle this holiday season? Snag some of these sparkly silver and gold holiday knitting patterns and yarns!

Silver Queen Handkerchief
Even if you’re not interested in knitting this beautiful handkerchief, you might want to check out the story behind the name of this pattern, based on Utah’s Silver Queen. If you do decide to knit the pattern, you’ll need uber-tiny needles to complete it. Be sure to take frequent breaks for those hand stretches! Oh, and did I mention that the pattern is free?
Lion Brand Wool-Ease
Already have a project in mind but not sure where to find the perfect gold yarn? This Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn in Gold is soft, washable, and very affordable. It’s perfect for patterns that call for a chunky-weight yarn.

Silver Bells and Cockle Shells
This shawl gets its name from the “Mary, Mary, quite contrary” nursery rhyme. I love the vintage-inspired edging almost as I love the crescent shape that comes in three different sizes. This would look gorgeous knitted in a silk or bamboo that has just a little bit of shimmer.

Not all of us get fancy during the holidays. For those of you keeping it casual, you can still show off a bit of sparkle. This hat boasts a pretty diamond pattern that’s made up of knits and purls. You can control the amount of slouch in the hat by adding or subtracting diamond repeats.
Cascade Elysian Yarn
Going glam doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. This Cascade Elysian yarn is made of a combination of merino wool and acrylic for a yarn that’s soft but still washable. (Party stains have nothin’ on this yarn.)

Egyptian Gold Shawl
The Egyptians were just as crazy about gold as you are, so embrace that with a shawl that gives a little nod to them. This pattern can be dressed up or down, which means you can wear it throughout the year even when you’re not celebrating the holidays.
Ruffled & Ruched Scarf Kit
There’s no time to mess around when it comes to holiday knitting, and that’s why Bluprint’s kits are so handy. Everything you need for this ruffled and ruched scarf will come in the mail. All you have to do is provide the needles! Wouldn’t this scarf look nice over your winter coat or even worn solo over your party clothes?
