Knit The Perfect Christmas Gift!

The greatest thing about being a knitter is that you can create literally anything if you put your mind to it (plus needles and yarn, of course). Wow your friends and family this festive season with one, or all, of these fabulously cute and creative gifts.

For the iPad lover

Woodland animals have been bang on trend for the last couple of autumns and make for some adorably fashionable knitted projects.

For the quirky one

Teens and adults alike will adore this feline cloche – pair with cute kitty accessories if they’re a total cat lover for a particularly paw-some parcel.

For the one who loves to be pampered

Americans have been going frantic for knitted face cloths for years now, but I’m still not convinced they’ve caught on over here. But surely it’s time that changed. They’re easy and quick to make, and when knitted in an organic cotton yarn are far better quality than anything you can pick up in a department store. Pad out with some fragrant bath goodies for bonus bubbles!

For the accessory lover

A teensy pair of arm-warmers really does knit up in a jiffy so, if time’s tight, you could easily muster a few of these. Aim for your recipient’s favourite shades to ensure maximum wear, or if you’re not sure what that is, just match their favourite coat or jacket.

For the mum-to-be

Better still, if there’s a new baby around – the soon-to-be parents will love a novelty knit to dress them in. This owl hat will definitely go down a hoot.

For the knitter

Nobody appreciates the time and effort put into knitting a gift more than a fellow crafter, so why not arm them with a brand new kit bag for all their projects-on-the-go? Line with a light cotton fabric to ensure no sneaky needles end up poking through. They’ll love it!
