Unexpected Crochet Gifts
Accessories are my favorite crochet patterns. They are quick. You can whip them up for a quick gift or for a special occasion. Many only require a skein or two-making them great stashbusters, and I have a great many single skeins in my stash. They are a fabulous way to try out a new technique or interesting stitch pattern. And they are the perfect choice when you aren't sure about sizing. Hats are pretty much one size fits all.
As the temperatures struggle to stay on the positive side of the thermometer and I carefully plan my holiday crochet, I am wrapped in a warm afghan, surrounded by yarn, and looking for warm and giftable crochet accessory patterns. Here are some of my favorites.
|I found some great options in Unexpected Afghans. Yes, a crochet afghan isn't a good quick gift idea, but Unexpected Afghans has several beautiful pillow patterns as well. A pair of decorative crochet pillows makes a great gift idea. You can personalize them with the perfect colors, and you can always make the perfect crochet afghan for a later gift. From Tunisian to motifs to lace, you will find innovative and eye-catching designs. Download your copy of Unexpected Afghans today.|
|Rustic Modern Crochet has many fabulous options from scarves to mitts and hats, but I especially love the cover project, Sea Turtle. This crochet poncho looks equally elegant over a little black dress or a t-shirt and jeans. The best part is that you don't have to worry about sizing or gauge. You will find the perfect gift for yourself and your nature loving friends. Get your copy of Rustic Modern Crochet.|
|One of my favorite crochet hats for gifting is the Blueberry Trellis Hat by Anastasia Popova from Interweave Crochet Accessories 2011. The band is worked in a simple crochet cable edged with reverse single crochet. The body of the hat works up quickly. I have made this hat in a couple of short evening. Pick the perfect button to reflect the recipient's personality, and you have a quick personalized gift. You will find fabulous scarves, wraps, hats, and more in the Interweave Crochet Accessories 2010-2014 Collection. Download your copy today.|
