01 // Shelled Gryffindor Cowl, by Charlotte Yue (ravelry link). While Charlotte has scarf and cowl patterns for each of the noble houses of Hogwarts, the Gryffindor Cowl is my favorite. Make it in solid black for a sophisticated look, add sparkly yarn for your holiday outfit, or whip it up in classic Gryffindor colors to show your house pride!
02 // Hooded Scarf, by Rachel Choi (ravelry link). I love the idea of a scarf and hood combo! Made with worsted weight yarn, this one will work up quickly, and it's even got pockets!
03 // Baggier Basic Beanie, by Sara Dudek (ravelry link). Make this one for every hipster on your list - with just the right amount of slouch, this hat is perfect for your more fashionable friends and family.
04 // Oma House Slippers, by Tara Murray. A fun and quick crochet slipper for all the women on your list! Sized from 3-12, you can make this for girls as well as women, and in a variety of color combinations.
05 // Sans Limites Cowl, by Sara Dudek (ravelry link). Cowls are definitely a hot accessory this winter, and this one works up with bulky yarn and a large hook, making it quick as can be!
06 // EZ Earflap Hat, by Jeannie Kubricht. Perfect for the littles that have been born this year, earflap hats can be tied on, keep ears toasty warm while not covering eyes, and you can embellish with a wide variety of stripes and tassel colors!
07 // Super Duper Kitchen Sponges, by Sylvia Schuchardt. These double-sided kitchen scrubbies are a perfect stocking stuffer, great for younger folks just moving into their first place, or just about anyone who spends any time in the kitchen!
08 // Granny Skull Cap, by Chelle Grissam. I made four of these in one day, that's how fast they work up! Make them a bit slouchy or make them according to pattern for a fitted look, and all the ladies on your list will love you!
09 // Tamarin Cozy, by Dena Stelly (ravelry link). I keep meaning to make one of these for my own Kindle, and now that I know several folks with either a Kindle or Nook, I knew I needed to add it to my holiday list. This cozy works up fast with a fun stitch, and is perfect to gift to a guy or gal.
10 // Fingerless Gloves for Men, by Rachel Choi. Simple and classic, I'd make these for just about anyone on my list. I'd also make the wrist/arm section a bit longer, though.
