Great Knitted and Sewn Gifts to Get Started on for the Holidays! - Knitting Crochet Sewing Crafts Patterns and Ideas!So often we remember projects and ideas that we've wanted to make for loved ones when it's just too late! This year we thought it would be helpful to remind you of some of our favorite projects from years past to start now so that you can finish in time for the holidays. It's such a great feeling when you have your handmade gifts underway and can spend the holiday season participating in the festivities rather than staying up until all hours finishing that project that you really meant to start sooner!

Download the pattern here I was so smitten by the costumes in the Golden Compass, and for this cap at least, one wonders: how often can something so desirable be achieved so easily? I whipped this up in an evening and thought I would share. If you are lucky you will even have some yarn in your stash that will work. Difficulty Easy
Fresh from the Knitty rejection pile! (It's okay Knitty, I still love you. Let's hang out sometime?) 35mm Hat Growing up in Minnesota, I know the value of warm winter accessories. Unfortunately, I see so many people covering their heads with boring, machine-knit hats that I sometimes get the desire to make hats for people I hardly know.
Note: To make this pattern easier to understand, the predominantly yellow (MC) side will be called the RS, and the predominantly black (CC) side will be called the WS. CO 48 stitches using CC. I recommend using a cable cast on, but a tubular cast on is also nice for double knitting.
It's a hat with owls! Yay! This is for my brother, whose mangyle will never be done. Certainly not for christmas. He always sends me pictures of owls, so i figured he'd appreciate it. Anyway, just for PoorLuci, here's what I did:
Using US #6/4mm needle, CO 133 sts, placing a marker every 22 sts. Note: For the smaller size only , there will be 23 sts after the last marker, instead of 22. Also for the smaller size only, omit the yo at the beginning of the first row. K1 instead. Work Row 1 of chart pattern using US #2/2.75mm circular needle. Place marker and join to begin working in the round, being careful not to twist.
DIRECTIONS Using circular needle, CO 120 sts. Place marker and join to begin working in the round, being careful not to twist. Round 1: P1, k2, [p2, k2] to last st, p1. This round sets 2x2 Rib for hat. Continue in 2x2 Rib until work measures 1.25 inches.
Using circular needle and two strands of MC held together, CO 60[60, 64, 68] sts. Place marker and join to begin working in the round, being careful not to twist. Note: Piece is worked with two strands of MC held together throughout. Work Rounds 1-4 of Baby Cable Rib pattern 6[7, 8, 9] times, then work Rounds 1-3 once more. Eyelet Round: [K2tog but do not drop sts from left needle, k into first of these sts again, drop both sts from left needle, yo, p2tog] to end. Work 6 more rounds in pattern as set.
Chart: The chart for this pattern fits on a letter-sized page. Click here and print. 1x1 Rib (Worked in the round over an even number of sts): All rounds: [K1, p1] to end. C2B: Sl 1 to cable needle and hold to back of work, k1 from left needle, k1 from cable needle.
