Two-Hour Knit Gifts: 28 Quick Knitting Projects


(2 Votes)


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, coworker... The list goes on (and on and on).

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 Two-Hour Knit Gifts: 28 Quick Knitting Projects can be finished in no time at all and is sure to please any recipient.

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.

Great ideas for last minute gifts! #BestIdeaEver
