We've got you covered for knitted gift ideas!
The holidays may seem far off in the distance, but if this year has taught us anything, we know how fast time flies!
We've curated a collection of yarn and patterns that we think are just perfect for gifting this holiday season!
THINGS TO KEEP YOUR NECK WARM
Scintille is the perfect cowl to keep your neck warm and cozy this winter, with just the right amount of bling.
Knit flat to start, and then joined in the round once the hem is complete. A split hem allows you to have a little extra protection at the gap where your coat or jacket meets.
Grab a ball of the bedazzling Lousia Harding Scintille, or your favorite squishy-soft aran-weight yarn, and get ready to make the perfect holiday gift! Fast and easy, you'll have this accessory done in no time.
Simple and stylish, Getting Warmer is a light and cozy cowl that's worked from the bottom up, transitioning from easy 2x2 rib to garter stitch in the round with regular decreases. It can be pulled down over one or both shoulders, and the neck will remain snug and close, without gaping. Two balls of the ultra-delicious light and airy Mochi will make this quick and easy cowplet (cowl+capelet).
Knitted in the round on one needle size without increasing or decreasing, Saw Palmetto's knit/purl chevron pattern is perfect for beginners who are ready to tackle their first circular project. Grab a skein of your favorite aran-weight yarn and get going!
THINGS TO KEEP YOUR NOGGIN TOASTY
If you only have a handful of hours and love a chonky look...
Truly the easiest, fastest, warmest hat out there, Cramp Bark takes only one skein of super-bulky. No stitch marker necessary. Just cast on and get to work! You'll be done in no time.
If you've got a little more time and love a folded brim...
On to Antarctica! is a folded-brim unisex hat that's knit with a DK-weight, which makes it the perfect hat to wear all winter long (indoors and out!). Go lux with Hannah Sparkle, get tweedy with Kathmandu DK or Eco Tweed, or classic with Ultra Wool DK or Farm Twist.
Dipole is the hat you'll grab again and again when the weather turns chilly. The scrumptious fisherman's rib creates a squishy soft, vertically striped body, while the folded brim keeps your ears warm and cozy. We love Madtosh Vintage, March Hare, or Rustic Aran.
If you're new to hats and want something easy...
And now for some crocheted gift ideas!
If you only have a handful of hours and love a cute earwarmer...
Puff Dandy is the perfect accessory to keep you warm and stylish when the temperature dips! Crocheted in the round with a 5.5mm hook and worsted-weight yarn, this piece is a delightfully quick and fun project. Sizes available for the whole family! Video tutorials provided for any special skills used.
Grab a skein of your favorite worsted-weight and get hooking! We love Fourteen for the ultimate luxury, March Hare for the flare, Rustic Aran for classic and cozy.
If you love your fingers to be toasty...
Who doesn't love a pair of cozy mittens to slip their hands into when the weather gets cold? These sweet Mrs Murdock's Mittens are simple and easy, worked entirely in single crochet. Available in 3 sizes to fit the whole family!
We love the resilience of Berroco Vintage or the classicness of Galway and Galway Heather for these mittens.
If you've got more time and love a good tote...
Say hello to the Lawrence Market Tote! This easy and fun crochet bag will hold all your shopping needs, can be tossed in the wash at the end of the day, and best of all, you get to say, "Yes, I made this!" Make it zesty and fun, or organic and demure. Whatever you choose is perfect for you! Check out Fantasy Naturale, Coastline, and Pima 100.
If you love Tunisian crochet and a matching set...
Set off on your next adventure with this playful pair. The Mesa Hat and Scarf bring the color without all the fuss by using self-striping yarn. When paired with a lightly heathered neutral color, the overall finish looks way more complicated than the actual stitches are. This matching hat and scarf set is easy to customize and perfect for those looking to expand on their Tunisian crochet skills.
We love Ito, Kureyon, and Kureopatora as options for the long color changes. Rustic Aran and Santa Cruz would make great solid contrasts!
