It’s not too late to knit some Christmas projects!
October to December is a busy time, to say the least. With all the preparation for the big day, it’s difficult to find a moment of peace to knit. That’s exactly why we’ve put together eleven Christmas patterns that you can start straight away – and they’ll only take an evening or two max!
3. Keepsake Ornaments
Make a Christmas keepsake that’ll only take a small amount of time to knit, but will be a treasured tree ornament for many years to come. You can choose from Santa, a nutcracker prince or a fab polar bear!
4. Striped Hat
If you’re struggling to think of what to get the little ones this year this adorable striped hat is the solution. What’s better, is you only need to know how to knit, purl and knit two together, and the whole project can be completed in an evening or two.
6. Knitted Decorations
Knitted jumpers are a Christmas tradition, there’s no doubt about it. So why not knit your own miniature version to hang on your tree, alongside a knitted mug of hot cocoa and holly bauble.
7. Cosy Garland
Make mini versions of your snuggly winter warmers. You can knit as many as you need to hang along your fireplace, and they can be striped or plain to save time and make the project even quicker!
8. Freddie the Penguin
Handmade toys are a fantastic present idea, and this little fella has to be the cutest penguin we’ve ever seen. It’s a brilliant project for beginners looking to improve their skills whilst knitting something lovely.
9. Pompom Bunting
Deck the halls with this super-easy bunting project. It’s the perfect choice if you want to keep the kids busy during the school holidays as they can easily help you. Who knows, they might even become a better knitter than you!
10. Christmas Card Decorations
2-in-1 makes are brilliant, especially around this time of the year when there aren’t enough hours in the day. These jolly decorations double up as handmade cards for your family and friends.
11. Striped Scarf
Red and white are the classic festive combo, and look even better made up in a scarf. This is perfect if you’ve forgotten to get someone a gift right at the last minute, or maybe just knit one for yourself!
