1) Hudson Valley Hat

This is a wonderful gifting suggestion, that will keep your nearest and dearest warm. Blue Sky Woolstok is a dream to work with and will keep your love one toasty on those brisk winter nights!

The hat shaping is built right into the cables, so no need to count, just work the charts and get the hat of your dreams . . . and you can also knit the matching Hudson Valley Mittens!

2) Sliding Doors Cowl

A fast, fun, fair isle knit. This fair isle chart features two color arrows. They are nested so you can’t tell which direction they are pointing in. I was inspired by seeing a movie poster the 90’s rom-com “Sliding Doors“.

This cowl will conformably rest around your neck, keeping you warm and snug.


3) Grape Leaf Mittens

These cute, yet quite cozy mittens feature a beautiful lace pattern reminiscent of the shape of grape leaves. A perfect last minute present, that is a super quick knitting project.. . . and you can also knit the matching Grape Leaf Hat!


4) Bumble Bee Mitts: Perfect for Texting!

These mitts are cute and convenient, with a simplistic yet sophisticated pattern. A perfect stocking stuffer for those avid cell phone users, allowing their fingers to be free to text and tweet.


5) Rhinebeck Hat

This is a technique packed pattern for those up for a challenge. It has a two color cast on, corrugated rib, latvian braid and of course, fair isle! You can pair it with the Rhinebeck Wristers for a great set!


6) Bacchus Cowl

An INSANELY simple and fast drop stitch pattern that looks fancy while being dead easy (shhh, it’s our secret). Grab two skeins of your favorite hand dyed yarn and have fun. Make two as mirror images of each other for a bit of added fun.


7) Nesting Diamond Shrug

Make a garment in the same amount of time it takes you to make a hat! This easy shrug is knit cuff to cuff. Stitches are picked up around the edge and short rows are used to shape the shawl collar for a bit of “showy” fun.


8) I-Beam Hat & Box and Beam Wrist Warmers

Grab two colors of yarn and make this fun slip stitch set. It looks like more complex stranded knitting, but you are only working one color at a time. Slip stitch knitting is easy, but looks impressive. Just what you want in gift knitting :)!



9) Rhinebeck Cowl

Be warned, knitting this is addictive. I ended up knitting three different versions. A bit of Noro or another color changing yarn and one solid color is all you need. Inspired by the woven fabric of Santa Fe and the fall colors of the East.



10) Clos Grapevine Scarf

Combine a dropped stitch with a twisted stitch pattern and what do you get? Spectacular. Only one skein of DK weight yarn was used. You can use two skeins and add an extra pattern repeat for a wider version



I hope you enjoyed these gifting suggestions, just as much as I have enjoyed sharing them. Now go create some of your best work, that your friends and family are going to love.
