Simple Knits: December 6 - 12

Despite the single digit on the calendar, we are in the last stages of holiday knitting to be sure. In just a few short weeks all the presents will have been handed out, the frenzied high of crafting into the wee hours will have worn off into a headache, and you'll be wishing you spent more time sleeping and drinking hot chocolate and less time slaving away.

With that in mind, here's seven simple projects that can be given as gifts, but take less than three hours to make each - simple, done, perfect!


December 6: Calorimetry, from Knitty {pictured above}. The perfect way to keep your ears warm during the coldest parts of the year, and still keep your hair in a ponytail!

December 7: Felicity. {free Ravelry download} The perfect hat to whip up in a jiffy, it can be made for any lady you know!

December 8: Toast or Toasties. These fingerless mitts can be made with or without a thumb hole, and are the perfect quick knit to whip up as a hostess gift or for friends and family.

December 9: Perfect Baby Booties. Perfect indeed, these whip up super fast and are great for all the new babes and expectant mothers on your list!

December 10: Wham, Bam, Thank You Lamb! Neckwarmer. {free Ravelry download} Cowls and scarves are some of the best ways to keep warm this winter, and this thick and quick cowl does just that!

December 11: Reading Mitts. Don't let the patterning fool you, these will work up fast and easy, even for a beginner!

December 12: Dolores Park Cowl. I love that, depending on the color, this could quite literally be made for everyone on your list, man or woman!
