Christmas Knitting Ideas for Everyone On Your List

Christmas is one of the best times of the year to pull out all of your favorite free knitting patterns because knitted gifts are some of the most thoughtful presents you can give.

Giving someone a gift of a handmade snuggly sweater, a cozy scarf, or a festive pair of socks is a wonderful way to bring them some holiday cheer while also showing them how much you care. Plus, Christmas knitting patterns are just so full of joy and warmth that they’re as much fun to give as they are to knit.

But choosing exactly which patterns to knit for your loved ones can be a challenge. Would your hubby prefer a sweater or a scarf? Would your granddaughter prefer a hat or a cowl? Would your best friend like fingerless gloves or boot cuffs? There are lots of choices to be made when it comes to knitting Christmas gifts, so this collection is here to help.

These Christmas Knitting Patterns for Everyone on Your List will help you choose just the right holiday knitting pattern for each one of your loved ones this holiday season.

Knit Christmas Gifts for Your Sweetheart

Hubby can be the most difficult to knit for. He won't wear that knit hat you made him because it's "too frilly." He refuses to wear a scarf because he "doesn't mind the cold."

He simply can't say no to classic knits as cozy and timeless as these! So feel free to choose one of these free knitting patterns and surprise him with a cozy, thoughtful, homemade gift that's sure to make him smile and admit "knitted gifts aren't too bad." 

Knitted Gifts for Teens

Teens are another challenge to knit for. What's trendy? What would they like? What will they actually use? Unfortunately, the answers to those questions change as often as teenager's moods. So avoid the hassle and look instead to clean, simple, classic knits with personality and style that will satisfy your teen no matter what the current trends are. These Christmas knitting patterns are simple, stylish, a little edgy, and not at all cheesy, so they're sure to satisfy any picky teen. With free knitting patterns as teen-friendly as these, your Christmas gift is sure to be their favorite. (Which is saying a lot, because pleasing teens is no easy feat!)
