Kristen TenDyke's Chevron Market Bag uses a lace pattern instead of the usual plain mesh that you see in most market bags. If you have farmer's market enthusiasts on your list, this is the perfect knitted gift idea.


Knitting Gift Ideas: Winter Twilight Mitts

#3: Knitting Gift Ideas, Mitts Pattern

Laura Rintala's Winter Twilight Mitts are so beautiful. The Fair Isle pattern evokes a stained glass window. The luxurious cashmere yarn is a joy to knit with and a delight to wear; if you need a knitted gift for a young woman, these mitts are perfect.


Knitted Gifts: Slouch Hat

#4: Knitting Gift Ideas, Hat Pattern

Simona Merchant-Dest's Slouch Hat is a wonderful knit. The colorwork will thrill whoever receives this thoughtful gift. If you're looking for really special knitting gift ideas, this hat is a showstopper. You'll have as much fun choosing colors and knitting the Slouch Hat as the giftee will wearing it.


Easy Knitted Gifts: The Two-Color Hat

#5: Knitting Gift Ideas, Hat Patterns

The Two-Color Hat by Andrea Wong is one of those easy knitted gifts that people will think took you hours and hours to make. Equally suited to a man or a woman (or a child), you'll be able to make an entire family of these hats in just a week or two.


Knit Gifts: Juliet Scarf

#6: Knitting Gift Ideas, Scarf Pattern

Louisa Harding's Juliet Scarf is light and airy, knitted in a soft, luxurious angora blend; this knitted gift is 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

#7: Knitting Gift Ideas, 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

#8: Knitting Gift Ideas, 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

#9: Gift Ideas, Knitted Ball Pattern

What gift collection of knitted gifts 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.
