Christmas Ideas: 1
Are you looking for a present for a new-ish knitter? Or for something fun to knit up yourself?
The knitonthenet shop has some lovely knitting kits which you can purchase, such as these Lady's Gauntlets, above. All yarns are included, plus a unique set of vintage buttons for a completely individual look. The kits come in a range of eight colour combinations with something to suit everyone. It is a pattern which would suit the advanced beginner upwards, and would be good for learning short row and grafting techniques. There are two sizes to knit - S/M and M/L.
But if gauntlets aren't your thing, then what about a hat?
Retro Cloche Hat by Just call me Ruby
The Retro Cloche Hat is a clever design, knitted both flat and in the round. It again is suitable for an advanced beginner, upwards. This pretty hat has eyelets knitted in to allow a ribbon to be added to adjust the hat for the perfect fit. It is quick to knit so would be great for last minute gift knitting for Christmas too.
