Holiday Needlework Gift Ideas to Make and Give

Give the gift of heirloom tools or knitted projects this holiday season!

Handmade Knitting Gifts

PieceWork’s knitting kits make great Christmas gifts. You can complete the project and give the finished knitted accessory to a friend or loved one. These kits also make great gifts for fellow knitters to complete themselves! Experiment with colorful knitted colorwork with the Colorful Estonian Gloves to Knit Kit. If you’re feeling nostalgic, take a look at our Jan Brett-inspired mitten kit — or, if you’re feeling festive, give the Winter Light Leg Warmers a look. Choose from three different colorways with our vintage bicycle knitted sock kits.
