As much as I enjoy sewing, I find knitting to be far more convenient. I can pull out my needles anytime I have a few spare minutes and with knitting I don’t have to worry about taking over my dining room table every time I want to make something. Here are a few knitting projects I’ve pulled together for some Christmas gifting inspiration. Many of these are perfect for beginners and can be completed in an afternoon….and they’re free (except for the bowling pattern which is sitting pretty close to free at $1 for the pattern)!
Toys and Dolls to Knit
Striped stockinette snake
Ice cream cones
Aisling the Elf
Owlie soap sack
Frog bath puppet
Maggie Bean and Friends (22″ doll) from Petite Purls
Wearables to Knit
I made some hacky sacks a few days ago and plan on making some baby gnomes for stocking stuffers!Â And, if I can swing it, I’d love to make the little bear ornaments and add the kids’ names onto them.
P.S. Some of the patterns require you to open a free account in order to access them…just giving you a head’s up!
