Last year I put together a bundle on Ravelry of Christmas inspired knitting ideas (you can find that post here) I thought it was a lot of fun so this morning I took some time to look through Ravelry and see what I could find for this year.
I did a search with the term “Christmas” and then sorted from newest added to Ravelry so I would find all the recent stuff. I do love just doing random searches on Ravelry and eliminating the “hot right now” default search order because you can see some really interesting stuff. There’s something out there for everyone is always my take-away.
Some of these will knit up really quick so if you’re looking for last minute gift ideas there are some great ones in this bundle. Here’s the link.
The Victorian Yuletide ornaments are by Jenn Sheelan who did the jar cover I did earlier this year in the panda yarn. I love her stuff and she has a couple of collections of ornaments. Colorwork seems extra popular during the holidays and I loved the cowl and the fingerless mitts. The Christmas present hat is adorable that that designer had a whole line of super cute holiday hats. I’ve never seen a mug cap before but it seems like a good idea and might go well paired with a mug mat and a cute mug. The Polar Bear Pouch is so adorable and I need to find a little person who would love it! Sunny the Snowman is by Susan Claudino who did the pattern for Patch who I knit in October and who was my Rhinebeck trip mascot. I will definitely be knitting a Sunny soon!
A couple more patterns to point out that are not in this bundle. It’s not too late to join in on the Project Peace which is being hosted by the Healthy Knitter. You can find more info on her blog but it’s a lovely free KAL. I’ve started and the end product is a cowl and her hope is to bring a little peace into the world with knitters everywhere focusing on peace while knitting this cowl. She offers daily reflections on her blog and I think the last count I saw was 19,000 knitters.
Another pattern I’ve been knitting is #Errnaments by PBJ Knits. This is a $2 pattern but she is donating the profits to ChildAid, a nonprofit that helps children in Central America. It was created for the Just One More Row podcast and they are quick and simple mini sweater and stocking ornaments that make great gifts! I bought the pattern for myself and gifted one to my friend Becky.
Hope you find something fun and festive to knit!!!
