Free Small Christmas Gift Knit Patterns
Holiday decorations are a great gift for neighbors or teachers. You can knit pretty holiday ornaments to give as presents or to decorate your own tree. Knit a heavenly choir or angel ornaments with a skein of white yarn (a white yarn with gold metallic accents would be especially festive). The Skating Fun Pins or Ornaments are another fun choice. You can add blades or wheels using safety pins or beads, too!
For an avid reader, use the Free Book Cover Knitting Pattern to create a book cover in their favorite colors. The project comes together quickly and you can even add a new paperback to it for an extra surprise.
There are also plenty of Free Toy Knitting Patterns that make quick knitting projects. Knit balls, stuffed animals, and blocks for the children on your holiday gift list. You can even knit sweaters and dresses to accessorize a new doll. Small knit toys make great stocking stuffers!
Quick Winter Knitting Projects
If you’re looking for a practical present idea, warm winter accessories also make great small Christmas gift knit patterns. Many Winter Accessory Knitting Patterns, such as hats, headbands, and mittens, can be knit using just one skein of yarn. Plus, you know your gift will come in handy during the holiday season—sometimes it takes more than love to keep you warm.
The Brightly Beaded Moccasins are a bit more than a skein—one skein per foot—but the beautiful moccasins would make a wonderful gift for your mother or sister. You might want to keep them yourself, though.
No matter how long a project takes, or how much yarn you use, a handknit project is a wonderful gift for you to give to anyone on your Christmas list.
