Crochet Gifts I’d Like to Receive
Recently, someone was nice enough to remind me just how many days we had Christmas. I reminded myself not to kill the messenger. I’m even more behind than normal this year. But not to worry, I have plenty of options for crochet gifts. Here are three of my favorites from Love of Crochet Winter 2015.
The project that first caught my attention was the Sparkling Snowflake Scarf by Suzann Thompson. This crochet scarf is inspired by Irish crochet techniques. Crochet the snowflake motifs in three sizes and in two weights of yarns. The individually crocheted motifs are then laid out on a simple rectangular templae and joined with wee motifs filling the gaps between flakes. Like snowflakes themselves, no two scarves are alike! This scarf would make such a fabulous gift, and worked in more than one color would be a great stash buster.
Another great gift idea, especially for that person who is hard to crochet for, is the Oh Dear, Reindeer by Megan Kreiner. This little amigurumi reindeer is crocheted with easy crochet stitches making this a great beginner pattern, and it’s the kind of project I like to work on while watching a Christmas movie. Paired with a movie and some hot chocolate, this adorable reindeer would make a great gift.
The Warm Winter Wrap by Melissa Leapman is gorgeous and perfect for everything from cool morning and a cup of tea to a holiday party. The simple four-row pattern is easy to memorize which is perfect with all of the visiting and traveling I do this time of year. The lace pattern also works up quickly—perfect for holiday gifting.
Okay, I can do this. I’m excited about all of these patterns. They are fun and easy, but I had better get started. Download your copy of Love of Crochet Winter 2015 for all of these patterns and more great projects, plus a fabulous article on working Tunisian short rows.
P.S. I need your advice. Let me know in the comments which project you would like to open this year.
