Casting on for Christmas – Crochet

There is something special about giving hand made gifts for Christmas and now is the time to start casting on. We’ve put together a three part guide full of Christmas knitting and crochet ideas. From quick socks and mittens, to toys and homey gifts, we’ve rounded up some of the best projects to make for friends and family this year.

In part two of our guide we have put together some of our favourite crochet projects. We’ve found some good quick makes along with some items for the home to get hooking in time for Christmas. 

1. Crocheted Cactuses by Sarah Abbondio
Give them a plant they can’t kill. We love these crocheted cactuses from Sarah Abbondio and think a little set would make a lovely gift for a plant lover.

A good slouchy bobble hat is always a winner. Crochet using Malibrigo Sock which has some gorgeous colours for all that colour work.
