"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

As knitters, we show our love with the work of our hands. A hand-knitted gift, large or small, means so much more than something store-bought; and if we could, we would knit gifts for every friend, family member, and even coworkers!
Unfortunately, many of us don't have the time to knit a sweater for every person who makes a positive impact on our lives. Quick knitting projects are much more practical when knitting for a long list of recipients.
Chunky scarf and knit hat patterns are always welcome gifts, of course, but accessories and household items make great presents too. Our collection of 30 two-hour knitting patterns can be finished in no time at all and is sure to please any recipient.

On the Double Drink Accessories: Quick Knitting Projects
If you have friends and family whose cup of tea is... well, a cup of tea, these quick knit gifts might be just the thing. Hand-knit cup cozies are a cute and eco-friendly alternative to paper cup sleeves that coffee and tea drinkers alike are sure to love. Knit coaster patterns are also wonderfully versatile quick knitting projects— they're small enough that you can personalize an entire set for anyone on your gift list.
Quick Knit Gifts for Tech Types
Though often overlooked, techno gadgets offer enormous potential for knitting inspiration. Everyone has a cell phone, after all, and most of them are fragile and pricey.

These quick knitting projects are small, easily customizable, and functional, making them ideal homemade gift ideas for everyone on your list.

I love these! Quick knitting projects are totally my thing, so I'd love to try all of these!

I was in need of some knitting or crochet projects that take around but not more than a couple of hours to make while I am riding in a car. I can't stand doing something for more than an hour, and I can't read while I am the passenger in a car. So knitting some gifts that take just takes two hours or so is perfect.
