Looking for some ideas for last minute making? We know that the holidays are right around the corner, so we’ve done some searching on Ravelry to find some quick gifty projects.
Troll by Gabriela Widmer-Hanke
What child wouldn’t look cute in this hat? The pattern is free and would be great knit out of Malabrigo Rios (100% superwash merino wool).
Basic Children’s Mittens by Elizabeth Durand
Brrr! It’s getting cold out there, so whip up a few pairs of mittens for the little ones. Another free pattern. Yarn recommendation: Cascade 220 SW Effects (100% superwash wool).
Emergency Hat (& Cowl) by Frankie Brown
This cleverly constructed hat can also become a cowl – user’s choice. Another free pattern that would be terrific in Noro Silk Garden (45% Silk, 45% Kid Mohair, 10% Lambswool) or Freia Ombre Worsted (100% wool).
Cables Love Pom Poms by Jami Brynildson
Another free pattern that would look great with our Faux Fur Pompoms! Make the hat out of super bulky Cascade Pacific Chunky (60% acrylic, 40% merino wool) for the quickest gift ever.
Crunching Leaves by Casapinka
We love this two color cowl made with bulky yarn. Try it with Malabrigo Mecha (100% merino wool) or Sugar Bush Canoe (61% wool, 26^ alpaca, 13% polyamide).
Simple House Slippers by Simone A.
These sweet little slippers will fly off your needles. Try new Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone DK – a 100% British wool (25% Wensleydale, 50% Blue Faced Leicester, 25% Masham).
Make-us-in-One-evening-With-a-great-movie-Mitts by A French Touch
A great free pattern for striking crocheted mitts. Yarn recommendation: Anzula For Better or Worsted (80% wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon).
Comfy Squares Buttoned Cowl by Rebecca Langford
This cozy (and comfy) cowl can be whipped up quickly using The Fibre Company’s Arranmore (80% Merino Wool, 10% Silk, 10% Cashmere).
Crooked Coffee Cozy by Danyel Pink
Make one of these for everyone on your list. They’re so fast, you can make one in every color imaginable! We recommend Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok (100% Fine Highland Wool).
Slipper Boots by Erika Knight
A free pattern and bulky yarn equals a great last minute gift idea! Try Superwash Soft (80% Merino Wool, 20% Nylon) from Sweet Georgia for deep rich color.
