Blogmas Day 12: Quick Gift Ideas to Knit or Crochet in Time for Christmas

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. With Christmas quickly approaching and only 13 days away now, many of us knitters or crocheters are wondering if we have the time to fit in one more small handmade gift for our loved ones. I have one gift on the go for my mom, but I realized I have not thought of the rest of the family and maybe some of the ideas will inspire some quick knitting or crocheting for you too. I looked on Pinterest for some cute quick projects that can be made in both knit or crochet and would be a fun addition to put in a stocking or attach to a gift.

1. Knitted or crocheted coasters. These are such a fun knitting or crochet project to do and to give as a set as a gift for the holidays. I love the packaging that Party Inspiration, they used the pattern originally from Purl Soho. I would like to give these a try they look so cute.

2. Coffee cup cozies or mug hugs. These would make the perfect stocking stuffers and as they suggest on Pinterest, it would be a fun idea to pair them with a gift card to their favourite coffee shop like Starbucks or Tim Hortons. You can find the pattern to make these coffee cup cozies on Ravelry.

3. Scrunchies. I keep seeing these all over the place, especially on Instagram. They must be THE thing to crochet right now. Not sure if we can knit them, but there are probably also patterns out there to knit these up too. The Snugglery has you covered for a free crochet pattern to make these for a quick fun gift in three different ways.

4. Cable knit headband is a fast knit and looks amazing. This pattern is by Michelle Greenberg on Ravelry.
5. Pussyhat. Give the activist or feminist you know a pussyhat for their next march. I wanted to make one of these to wear to a march last year but never did. It would be a fun gift to give to those who do get out there and take a stand for women. You can find the pattern here on Ravelry by Kat Coyle.

6. Fingerless mittens. I have made these mittens twice already this year. They are fun and quick to knit up, so they are perfect to give as gifts. The pattern is on Ravelry by Kathy North.

7. Knitted or crochet basket. These baskets are fun and quick to knit up using jumbo weight yarn. You can use this pattern for the Sandhills Basket by Winnie Marie Designs. There are also a lot of patterns for crocheting baskets.

8. Washcloth with soap set. These would be nice if you knit up some soft washcloths and added a bar of soap along with it. Pattern posted on In the loop knitting website.
