I don’t want to give you the wrong idea.
I do NOT make presents for everyone on my Christmas list. Good heavens. It’s easy to see articles suggesting recipes and patterns and ideas for homemade Christmas gifts and to assume these people make all their presents. And maybe some of them do. Most of us make a few and buy the rest and call it a day. The Internet can give the wrong impression like that sometimes.
But I do like making presents here and there when I can. And to that end, here are three knitting patterns for presents. None of them take too long (the blanket is probably the longest, but it’s double-knit, which I find goes much faster.) They’re all beginner-level patterns, involving very basic stitches. And I think they’re super-cute (but then, I’m biased. I made them up.) Two of them are free, one is 99¢.
I’m working on another baby blanket right now — a super-simple pattern that I’ll show you soon. Yippee!
