10 Quick Gifts and Gift Toppers to Crochet
It’s still early, and these are quick crochet gifts, which means you can make something for everyone on your holiday gift list this year. Hats and slippers keep people warm and are easily customized with a simple change of yarn color. For those on your list that aren’t quite into handmade wearables (gasp, shock, horror!), you can’t go wrong with a handmade gift topper or holiday ornament (ask me how I know!).
Crochet hats come in all shapes and styles. They can be fun, elegant, and everything in between. Here are my top picks for kids, teens, and adults.
What child doesn’t want a dinosaur on their head?! The pattern calls for worsted-weight yarn, so the T. Rex Hat and Mitts will whip up in no time.
It’s simple and understated, which makes this The Best Guy Hat Ever! Worked in slip stitches in the back loop only, this hat has amazing elasticity, so it’s uber comfortable.
This hat can be styled for all kinds of people on your list. For the chill and casual, the Ski Slope Hat pattern can be worn with the brim folded up. For the spunky and hip, it can be worn with an elongated point. Worked side to side, this hat is a great project for beginners.
Elegant yet casual, the Atomic Hat is fun and interesting to crochet with simple front post stitches worked in a 1950s-inspired texture.
Heat rises, and feet get cold! Crochet slippers for everyone you know, and keep their toes toasty warm.
This Crochet Slipper Collection has patterns for everyone in the family in a myriad of styles including crochet loafers, Mary Janes, and simple or embellished slipper socks.
Things will get a little hairy with the Sasquatch Slippers and Mittens. The pattern is written in 5 sizes that are sure to fit your little monsters.
