Homemade Christmas Gifts: 14 Knitting Faves

By: Julie DaMario, Editor for

With all the hustle and bustle around the holidays, sometimes it’s hard to remember the true meaning of the season. Christmas is not about the twinkling lights, the shiny baubles, or the beautifully wrapped gifts. It’s about celebrating the joy that our family and friends bring us.  It’s true that money can’t buy love or affection, but the joy of a handmade gift is a wonderful way to show our loved ones just how much we care. A store bought holiday may look good in pictures, but personally, I don’t think there’s anything better than a homemade Christmas.

Knitting has always been a special craft for people around the world, especially during the winter season.  There’s something magical about knowing that every stitch was made by someone with a living, breathing soul. Because of this, Christmas has always been a favorite time for yarn enthusiasts and fiber artisans. Their gifts are even more thoughtful and fulfilling to give, especially if they are keeping someone else warm.

This holiday season, put love into everything you stitch. We’ve compiled 14 easy knitting patterns in two wonderful eBooks for a handmade Christmas. You’ll find beautiful homemade Christmas stockings to warm up your mantle as well as gorgeous scarf patterns for cozy, wearable gifts. There’s nothing quite like a homemade gift, so check out these great patterns for an unforgettable Christmas.
