Quick Knits for the Holidays

Posted by

It's become a bit of a tradition here at HK HQ to put together an annual list of quick one skein projects that might help a knitter out if they were looking for ideas to finish their holiday knitting.

One of the quickest projects (at least for me) is a great hat, especially one knit in a worsted weight like Cadence.

Cory Ellen Boberg's cute Pip hat (shown in Braeburn in Cadence) would certainly knit up very quickly.

As would Katherine Leek's cozy Summit Hat (shown in Ruby Love in Tempo; Cadence would be a perfect substitute).

Boots are all the rage right now. How about a pair of jazzy boot toppers like Jennifer Chase Rappaport's Leaves Boot Cuff (shown in Portobello in Lively DK) to finish off the look?

Is someone always complaining about cold hands? I recently released a fun new mitten pattern, Pebblewood (shown in Hawkeye in Cadence) that would warm those digits right up.

Perhaps you want to steal the show at the party. Any recipient would be blown away to receive a silky shawl like Jen Lucas' Any Way You Want It (shown in Fresh Cut in Divine).

Or Melissa J. Goodale's dreamy Parterre (shown in Cirrus in Entice).

Personally, I always round out my holiday knitting with something new to add to my tree. This year I knit up two of Tin Can Knits' Fancy Balls (shown in Artisan Sock in Euphorbia, Nickel and Red Carpet; Ruby Love would be a great substitute). I knit both of these in an afternoon!

Of course, if someone on your list is a knitter themselves, maybe the experience of using one of your favourite Hazel Knit yarns would be the best gift of all. Gift cards are available on the Hazel Knits website.

And, don't worry, there is nothing wrong with hinting that you'd like one yourself.
