Hats and Other Wearables

Christmas Tree Farm Red Truck Hat

This hat will fit right in if you know someone who goes all out with the Christmas tree farm theme with cozy plaid patterns and old-fashioned trucks. Wear this aesthetic with you! Pairs well with a black and red flannel top and warm boots.

Christmas Hats Knitting Pattern Santa

This pattern set includes how to make medium-weight hats in all the colors shown, as well as instructions for any size from newborn to adult.

Donner Wrist Warmers

You or someone on your list will love to “don” these Donner Wrist Warmers. These fingerless gloves feature adorable accented antlers and a red pom-pom. A project at the intermediate level and will fit toddlers to adults.

Cute Toys and Decorative Items

Christmas Bear

These cute little bears are all dressed up to celebrate! Nothing like bringing out the child-like spirit of the holidays than with a classic bear. Patterns outline the “back and forth” method of knitting and stitching up the pieces by making seams.

Knit Penguin Amigurumi Pattern

This happy little festive penguin is dressed up for the snowfall with a scarf and hat. A basic pattern to work on the standard knit and purl stitches, decreasing stitches by knitting two together and increasing. Aside from the needed yarn, you’ll need felt to detail the eyes. Get a little creative with color by making a family with different colored hats and scarves!

Christmas Mouse

Just like the Christmas Bear pattern, the Christmas Mouse is made in the “back and forth” method. You’ll need stuffing and felt as additional pieces for this intermediate pattern. For a touch of whimsy, adding a small bell to the hat will add that seasonal charm.

My Candy Doll Jane

Just like the classic bear, knit up and give a cute little doll that can become a fantastic treasure to be adored, loved and passed through the generations. The pattern is made up of 23 pages and 90 detailed photos to help you succeed.

Knit Christmas Balls Ornament Pattern

If you can knit and purl, then you can make up these ornaments! The pattern includes the instructions to make an elf, reindeer, polar bear, penguin and Santa.

Stranded Christmas Stocking

Since this pattern will help you create a decoration, gauge is not important to achieve. With the color work involved, you can get by with using leftover yarn from skeins used for previous projects. In fact, this is a great way to use up any of that scrap yarn! The top of the stocking is in stockinette and for those experienced, you can work names into the knitting for a personalized look.

Christmas Reindeer Christopher

Christopher is a reindeer that is ready to be made and be a part of a new home. There are 25 pages and 106 photos that make up the instructions to make a complete reindeer and clothing. Pieces are knitted flat and sewn together. All you need is the yarn, stuffing and a few buttons.

Merry the Xmas Tree Ornament

What a cute and happy little tree! This knits up fast and is made with worsted weight yarn on double-pointed needles.

Unexpected-yet-Brilliant Gifts

Sheep Hot Water Bottle Cover Sweater

A perfect idea for someone who loves to cozy up in the winter. This little sweater that is fitted for a hot water bottle embodies the cozy and warm higgle aesthetic. The pattern includes many photos and steps along the way to complete the project. This is a quick project that can be done while watching a movie.

Catch of the Day

How about staying warm this winter with a couple of fish on your feet? This quirky pattern has a continuous scale pattern to replicate the scales on the fish. There is also an eye socket added that indicates a spot to add a button for an eye, if you wish to add one. For those who are well-versed in knitting socks but also want to experiment with something a little—fishy. Pattern shows how to make the socks in child’s sizes to women’s large and men’s small.

Knit Tree Stump Ottoman Pattern

What a unique idea! This ottoman is a perfect for a child’s room or any room that has a woodland decor theme. The added leaf and mushroom accents are incredibly charming. This is made in the round so you will need a set of circular needles.

Amigurumi Knit Little Mouse Pattern

Here is another small project that can be made with some scrap yarn and some simple knit and purl stitches. All you need besides the yarn is white thread for whiskers, a small pom-pom for the nose and small beads for those cute little eyes. Make one, two, or a whole group. You can also add some catnip to the stuffing inside that will make your cat excited for Christmas.

Wrapping things up (pun intended!)

Take a look at the other patterns available by these great designers. There are plenty of wonderful ideas that will have you totally inspired to take out the yarn and needles and make a thoughtful and one-of-a-kind gift this year.
