There is something pretty 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.
We’ll start with some of our favourite giftable makes to pop under the tree for friends and family. We’ve focused on quick cosy makes with a wide appeal to suit even that person the most difficult to buy for.
2. 3-in-1 Button Boots by Bekah Knits
Because we all know someone who loves a good pair of slippers for Christmas. Knit using De Rerum Natura Cyrano.
3. Rift by Emily Greene
This cosy cable cowl would make a perfect gift and if you have a bit of extra time Emily’s fingerless mitts pattern Anticline would make a lovely matching set. Knit using Malabrigo Rios.
4. Arctic Owl Hat and Mitts by Amy Christoffers from Making No. 6 / Black and White.
5. Mistletoe Kisses by Knitting Expat Designs
And finally, some Christmas socks! We couldn’t not include these. Knit using West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply.
