You have just about 6 weeks left until the holidays are over (what?!), and I'm sure you've already picked out and made every gift you're planning to give this year, right? Okay, me either. In fact, I don't think I've even thought about any gifts yet. So let's remedy this panic moment with a round-up of lovely patterns so you can win Christmas!
by Windy Vorwick
This is a perfect (and free) quick pattern that can be made in sufficient quantities to serve as stocking stuffers. And it will help you use up any scrap yarn you have laying around!
by Rebecca Zych
This pattern was just released last night! I've been obsessed ever since I first laid eyes on it (which was long before last night, in case you were wondering). You love knit plaids, don't you? I thought so.
And actually, if you want to gift it but don't have time to knit it, you can also buy a pre-made headband in Becca's shop!
by Karolina Eckerdal
A quick and festive project that you can use to decorate your own tree, or gift to someone else!
by Lauren Rad
This beauty is another one-skein wonder, with a soft motif that is so charming! This hat would bring someone so much joy! Also, Lauren is offering 15% off of the pattern until the end of December using the code MERRY (just for you!).
by Judy Jewell
Let's say you want something a little bit more elaborate to impress that special someone. But let's also say you're short on time. Enter the 5-Day Sweater, which the designer really was able to knit within 5 days, so it's not an exaggeration! I've had my eye on this one for quite awhile.
by Caitlin Shepherd
I think this one will win your heart over. Soft and sweet, with small feminine detail. There's a romantic that lives inside all of us that causes our heart to swell for things like this. If you're not sure who you would make these for, send me an email and I'll give you my address.
by Inese Sang
Bobble-lovers, this one is for you! Inese stuns me always with her beautiful and detailed pieces. And it can be made with just a single skein of yarn (the one in this image was knit with Garden Wool & Dye's yarn - you can get a skein and the pattern here).
