We knitters love to knit gifts for any occasion - birthdays, Christmas, thank yous and “just because” and so we’ve put together a list of our top ten quick gift knit patterns that we think you’ll love!

From mittens to socks, we’ve got you covered!

10: Margareta Cowl by MillaMia

This super squishy cowl is bursting with texture using only knits and purls - a great beginner project that will knit up super fast in this kitten-soft super chunky yarn!

9: Braided Headband by The Morning Whisper

The perfect little stocking filler or sweet gift for a friend, this little cabled headband is not only a great introduction to learning how to cable, but we have a video to show you how to make it from start to finish, too! We have made this in chunky and super chunky yarn, it’s a great little project!

8: Cosy Slipper Socks by Debbie Bliss

Slipper socks are a gorgeous gift, and these are so easy to make because they are knitted flat and seamed, with no circular knitting to do, so they’re a great project for new knitters. Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky is a luxury yarn that is worth the treat to keep your toes (and anyone else’s toes) super cosy and warm.

7: Frosty Chunky Scarf by Paintbox Yarns

A chunky scarf makes a fabulous gift, and this one is knitted in Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky, making it a super affordable project. It is knitted in a 2x2 rib, and if you haven’t knitted that before, we’ve got a video for you to follow!

6: Beauteous Boot Socks by Alice Neal

Don’t be scared of knitting socks! These gorgeous long socks are knitted in aran weight yarn, and take no time at all - and what’s more, they are so much fun to knit! Knit them long or short, striped or plain - we’ve got videos for you to follow along each step from cuff to toe!

5: Antler Gloves by Anna Nikipirowicz

These sweet fingerless mitts will keep your hands warm, leaving your fingers free to knit, write or tap on your phone! The cabling is done in the round, and Anna’s patterns are easy to follow with gorgeous results!

4: Anya Hat by Debbie Bliss

Super fast and so easy, the Anya hat is a great introduction to knitting in the round, if you haven’t tried it before.

This classic pattern is a wonderful chance to play with yarn - choose something you haven’t tried before, or something bright, or semi solid, or variegated! These timeless mitts are great fun to make and knit up in no time at all.
