The 7 Best Crochet Pattern Collections for Holiday Gifting
It’s Cyber Monday! If you’re like me, you skipped the Black Friday madness in favor of online shopping today. Cyber Monday is the best—you can get exactly what you want without fighting the crowds or waking up at the crack of dawn to get the best deals. During Interweave’s Cyber Monday sale, the great deals last all day and you can peruse them from the comfort of your own home. (Coupon code CYBER10 gets you even more savings!)
If you’re looking for the perfect hand-crocheted gifts for your loved ones this holiday season, check out our crochet pattern collections for gifty inspiration! Pattern collections are awesome because you get 5 or 6 fantastic patterns in one convenient download for one great price. So with one easy download, you can get a pattern for everyone on your list. (Actually crocheting the projects is another story!) To celebrate these great deals—and the joy of shopping in my jammies from the comfort of my couch NO JUDGEMENT—I’ve compiled a list of my favorite crochet pattern collections.
1. Grannies Go Mod
Granny squares are back, baby! These traditional crochet motifs are still going strong, and in these patterns we’ve given them a modern twist to keep them (and your wardrobe) fresh. The Ella Slippers and Trudy Scarf work up quickly and make great gifts.
2. Bruges Lace
Bruges crochet lace is a ribbon-like crochet technique honed in the 19th century, but it’s anything but old-fashioned. Explore this fabulous technique in our Bruges lace collection featuring 6 patterns, including a shawl, a tunic, and a bandana. If you’re looking for a quick gift for your favorite home chef, try the Bruges Border on a cute apron.
3. Crochet Mittens
Quick to make and fun to work, crochet mittens are great holiday gifts. The Crochet Great Mittens! pattern is great for crocheters new to making mittens—crochet them in one color for a quick gift, or work them up in bright colors for the kiddos. Or try the Mischa Mittens, which have an extra-warm lining that’s crocheted as you go.
4. Crochet Gifts for Big Siblings
If you’re stumped on what to get for the kids in your life—or you just don’t want to contribute to the piles of plastic toys they’ll get this holiday season—try a crocheted gift! The 8 patterns in this collection include some of my all-time Interweave favorites: Sir Stephen, The Bunny by Donna Childs and the Aitches by Brenda K. B. Anderson. The collection also has tangrams and cornhole bags perfect for holiday fun.
5. Men’s Crochet Classics
Need a gift for the special fella in your life? Crochet something for him! You can whip up the bow tie in time for Christmas or give him an IOU for one of the gorgeous sweater patterns in the collection. If you make a sweater, be sure to measure him carefully and let him help with color selection—you don’t want to surprise him and end up with a crocheted sweater he’ll never wear. (Not sure what he likes? Ask him to take our quiz!)
6. Crochet Home Décor
Make a throw pillow for your dad’s favorite cozy chair or an ottoman for your best friend’s living room from this collection of 8 great projects! Crocheted home décor projects make great gifts because you don’t have to know the recipient’s size—you just have to know their style. Before you start, be sure to look carefully around their home and choose yarn colors that match their existing décor.
7. Popular Crochet Shawls and Wraps
Crocheted shawls and wraps are perennial gift-giving favorites, and for good reason: they’re beautiful, useful, and easily customizable. This collection of 6 crocheted shawl patterns features some of our customer favorites, including the Love Is a Rose and Emergence shawls by Kathryn White and the Midsummer Night’s Shawl by Lisa Naskrent. Make one in the recipient’s favorite color for a gift they’ll treasure.
