4 Quick Homemade Gift Ideas

By: Caitlin Eaton, Editor for AllFreeKnitting

The season of gift giving is almost here, which means crafters are scrambling for the best homemade gift ideas to use as presents for family members and friends.  Since there are so many incredible tutorials available, it can be challenging to know which patterns will work for you and the people on your gift list.  In this exciting collection of free knitting patterns, we've pulled together some of our favorite tutorials that would all make wonderful gifts.  Each project is quick to knit, perfect for staying warm in winter weather and can easily be adapted for men and women depending on the color of yarn you choose.  

As a special bonus, we've also included a link to our new free eBook, A Knitter's Gift Guide: 8 Homemade Gift Ideas, which includes full versions of the patterns below in addition to four more tutorials.

4 Quick Homemade Gift Ideas

Deep Night Fingerless Gloves - Watch the colors of the sunset unfold as you knit up a pair of your own Deep Night Fingerless Gloves. Great texture and bold color ways combine to create a pair of basket weave stitch gloves that don't require double pointed needles. Ideal for a cool autumn day, you won't regret knitting fingerless gloves that are this stylish and downright fun to make!








Spiced Plum Scarf - Made with chunky yarn, and a simple lace design, this scarf knits up quickly and is great less experienced knitters. For a masculine version of this accessory, ditch the sewn flower and brown, black, green or red colored yarn.







Seaside Sunset Cowl + Fingerless Gloves - Prepare for chilly weather by knitting up some fingerless gloves and a matching knit cowl pattern. The Seaside Sunset Cowl + Fingerless Gloves are made with an open honeycomb stitch, giving each one a rich and alluring texture. If you're not a fan of circular or double pointed needles, don't worry because you won't need either in this pattern. Only straight needles are required for this project; the cowl is held together with two buttons and the gloves are assembled at the end of the pattern.
