Five Knits for Christmas Morning

Love the idea of a hand-made Christmas, but worry you’ll never have time to do everything you want? Start planning now and you may be able to achieve more than you thought (just don’t get too carried away – realistically, if you haven’t started knitting that 12 Days of Christmas scene by now, it probably isn’t going to happen…). Whether you’re looking for gift inspiration or projects to make your home look special on the big day, there are plenty of lovely knits out there. Check out our top five ideas for Christmas morning:

1) Mermaid tail or shark blanket
Bring some fairytale magic to the festivities with a fantastic character throw. Perfect for kids and adults alike (after all, you’re never too old to be a mermaid princess!), they are ideal to slip into and cosy up on the big day.

2) Mug wrap
Give your drinkware a festive update with these cute and cuddly wraps. Not only are they fun to break out for Christmas breakfast, they’re quick and easy to knit and make a cute gift for coffee lovers everywhere!

3) Slippers
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a new pair of slippers to pop on. Whip some up in a friend’s favourite colour and present them in a pretty box for the perfect gift.

4) Christmas decorations
From traditional Christmas stockings to fun knits for the tree, a Christmas pudding tea cosy to a festive cushion for your sofa – it’s time to knit and be merry!

5) Super softie
Just like The Generation Game, it wouldn’t be Christmas without the obligatory cuddly toy. Put your knitting skills to the test and make this fabulous rockin’ robin! After all, who doesn’t love a novelty Christmas character on their mantelpiece?

So, pass the Quality Street and let’s get knitting…
