This post and my next couple are going to be focused on rapid-fire gift giving! I know I ran out of time this year, didn’t you? Well, I’m here to help you out really quickly (since there is still so much left to do!) and toss up 5 quick present ideas that you can crochet that AREN’T a hat or scarf! Because while hats and scarves are super rad, they’re not a catch-all gift and it’s nice to have other quick projects in the repertoire, wouldn’t you agree? Also, not all hats and scarves fit, either physically or stylistically. So here are 5 FREE PATTERNS that make super cool presents that don’t take a heck of a lot of time to finish up and require no sizing specifications. Christmas is on Monday and I know you have a ton of stuff to do, so without further ado…
- Crochet leather coasters from Make and Do Crew
They make a great variety gift for housewarmings, father’s day, Christmas, yourself, you name it!
2. Crochet Planter Hanger from Vickie Howell
Made from jersey or t-shirt yarn, this crowd pleaser would be perfect for any of your garden/plant aficionado friends and family! Works up super quickly and no muss no fuss!
3. Bath Pouf Crochet Pattern from Daisy Cottage Designs
I think that Christmas time is, like, the number one time that anyone receives bath sets. Haven’t looked up statistics, but I’m pretty sure most bath sets are sold in this time frame, so bath poufs would be perfect to include with candles, bath bombs, and bath gels.
4. Clothesline Trivet by Make and Do Crew
I have yet to try out crochet in other materials, and this trivet pattern from Make and Do is at the top of my list! A durable material, your recipient will get a lot of use from this gift and it works up quick which is an added bonus.
5. Christmas Washcloth Crochet Pattern by Rescued Paw Designs
I really love the rustic look of these washcloths and since washcloths do up so quickly, these will speed by in no time at all, just in the nick of time!
And there you have it! Good luck and happy crafting, may the Force be with you, may the odds be ever in your favor, and may all your WIPs get finished in time!
Until next time,
