I know it’s about time I need to stop talking about things you can knit for Christmas, since we’re about down to the wire here. But there really are some projects you can still finish if you have some time to set aside for knitting in the next few days and if you’re only planning to knit for one or two people.
One great choice you still have time to knit is simple fingerless gloves. I have a pair over at About that has consistently been one of the most popular patterns on the site for years because they’re quick, easy, cozy, fun and cute. You can easily knit one, if not a pair, in a day.
A few more cute options include the Lumpy Fingerless Mitts by Ravelry user cdaniele, Femme Fingerless Mitts by Ines and Kristen Blackmore and the Easy Fingerless Mitts from La Souris Verte, all of which are free Ravelry downloads.
Also check out the Constellation Gloves from Lion Brand Yarn, the Nice and Easy Fingerless Mittens from Buttons and Pickles, Purl Diva’s Fast and Fearless Fingerless Mitts, the Knit Ombre Handwarmers from Just Crafty Enough or the Fingerless Mitten Duo from Craft Leftovers. Most of these use bulky yarn so they’ll knit up in a flash and be warm and cozy gifts when they’re done.
Still working on holiday knitting? I’d love to hear about it.
