Keep ‘Em Cozy With Quick-Knit Gifts
These giftable (but also totally keepable) ornaments are addictive to knit. You’ve been warned.
Stitch Up Some Holiday Vibes
Good news, beginner knitters! All your handknit holiday fantasies are about to come true: you can knit this stocking. With a super simplified heel (it's really just a rectangle) and fun fringe, you'll be ready for Santa in no time.
These crocheted ornaments are every kind of perfect: simple to make and soooooo cute. You can customize the pattern in endless ways (thick stripes, thin stripes, no stripes!), so you'll never get bored making them. Which is why every single person on your list might get one this year.
No Knitting Required!
Put a modern spin on your holiday decor by making a boho-chic wall hanging! All you need is some rope, a copper pipe, hot glue gun, and faux plants. Artist Rachel Metz helps you put it all together for a show-stopping piece that you can display year round.
If you’re looking for a beginner-friendly Tunisian crochet pattern, this is a great one! The pattern uses the Tunisian simple stitch, which is easy enough for newbies. It’s unlike any knit or traditional crochet stitch I have tried before and it creates a dense but flexible weave that's perfect for a winter accessory.
This easy (and quick!) crochet infinity scarf is the perfect for those times when you need to make something and you need it done now (come on, I know I'm not the only procrastinating crafter out there). What makes this project so quick? Crochet is almost always fastest when you work the same stitch across a row and the same stitch for many rows. That's exactly what this cowl brings to the table: the first half of the scarf is worked in half double crochet and the rest is double crochet. Simple. Fast. Perfect.

Let's be real, even when you set the best intentions, sometimes it's just not possible to knit something for everyone on your list. Except maybe it is, because we bet you can knock out these handknit gift card holders in about the same amount of time it will take you to buy the gift card itself.
