I know that, as knitters, we want to knit for eveeeeeeryone on our list, but if you’re like me and start thinking about gifts on December 1st, you end up not having enough time to make all the gifts you’d like.
So to help out, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite quick knits! Most of these can be finished in under 10 hours, and some are even 1 hour projects. I hope these help as you attempt to wrap everyone you love in woolly warmth this Christmas season!
Hot Mess Headband - A super cute knitted headband that you could do in 1-2 hours using basically any kind of worsted yarn. Perfect for anyone that you need to give a gift to, but don’t want to spend that much time and effort on.
Classic Cuffed Hat - Okay, literally everyone on my list is getting one of these this year because they are very easy (like, watch Netflix and knit at the same time easy) and knit up really quickly.
Lightning Fast Mittens - This name does not lie! I’ve knit these mittens twice now, and they’ve taken about 2-3 hours to do one pair. I don’t usually use the yarn that a pattern suggests, but I loved using Malabrigo Rasta for this project…super chunky yarn in beautiful colors!
Luxe Cowl - Literally the easiest of projects! Super bulky yarn + size 13 needles and you’re good to go.
Skyping Beanie - A great unisex hat that is perfect for everyone you know.
Circlet - Have any cute kids on your Christmas list? Circlet is the cutest, sweetest little knitted crown that’s great for anyone on your list who loves dress-up!
Cable Knit Headband - Another super fast headband, knitted in bulky yarn with beautiful braid cables.
Scrunchable Scarf - This project is a little lengthier, only because it’s a scarf. However, the scarf has the same pattern for every row, and it’s incredibly easy to memorize. After that, you can watch TV and knit this scarf at the same time!
Bluebird of Happiness - These little bird softies are perfect to use as Christmas ornaments!
