Knit Gifts: Juliet Scarf

Pattern #6

Scarf Pattern

Louisa Harding’s Juliet Scarf is light and airy, knitted in a soft, luxurious angora blend; making it very delicate and feminine. Knit it for your aunt or mom she’ll love it. A rosette brooch knitted in the same sumptuous yarn and finished with a dainty mother-of-pearl button adds a lovely touch while holding the scarf in place.

Knitted Gift Idea: Nerina Ruched and Ruffled Scarf

Pattern #7

Scarf Pattern

The Nerina Ruched and Ruffled Scarf by Kristin Omdahl is one of our most interesting knitted gift ideas. It’s cinched with a pair of satin cord drawstrings that are tied with double uni-knots. Drape it loosely around the shoulders for a capelet, or tighten the drawstrings a bit for soft ruffles, or cinch them all the way for a ruffled collar or cowl. This versatile gift will be worn for years.

Knit Gifts: Honeycomb Socks

Pattern #8

Socks Pattern

Socks are a wonderfully personal knitted gift to make, The Honeycomb Socks by Katie Himmelberg are fun to knit and to wear. And socks are so useful, too! Just ask the giftee their shoe size and keep them wondering until they open their gift!

Knit Ball Pattern: Nordic Striped Ball

Pattern #9

Knitted Ball Pattern

What collection of gift patterns would be complete without something for a little one? Lisa Shroyer’s Nordic Striped Ball is made by knitting two sides of a ball and joining them together in the middle. It’s like knitting two hat tops! This knit ball pattern will become a treasured plaything.
