Last Minute Knits

With ten days or so left before the holidays are upon us, you've still time to whip up a quick knitted gift or two before Christmastime. Here are a few examples which you could make from the knitonthenet archives.

The Crofter's Hat by Mairead Ramsey is made with super-bulky yarn for a quick knit. It can be adapted by yarn colour for both men's and women's hats, making it a good all rounder.

These lovely wrist-warmers can again be made in a whole host of colours to suit your gift recipient and is a great way to show off a variagated yarn. Knitted from one ball, this stashbuster will make a great present for the female members of your family.

Scarves are a perennial favourite for Christmas presents and are an easy make even for the beginner. Both the Plain and Simple Scarf (above), and the Beginners Crochet Scarf are perfect for all ages to keep warm on these chilly winter months.
