Two Hour Knits 28 Quick Knitting Patterns

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.

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.

Great ideas for last minute gifts! #BestIdeaEver
