Last Minute Crochet GiftsPin

Around this time of year I hit panic. I KNOW I forgot someone. I always do. No matter how much I try, how much I organize, how much I love them, I always forget someone. Or, I just get so busy I suddenly realize there is not enough time to get to everyone! So, just in case I am not alone in this malfunction, I have collected some patterns that can be used to make some fabulous last minute gifts.

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Simple Chain Stitch Necklace ~ Designed by Jessie Rayot
If you can make a crochet chain, you can make this necklace! It is super simple, and tons of fun. This necklace is a great way for those just learning to make a finished item, it is a wonderful project for kids (what a great Mother’s Day gift!) and it is even fun for the more advanced.

2) Sleek and Skinny Ear Warmer/ Headband ~ Designed by Cre8tion Crochet
This ear warmer was designed to be slim and slender to the wearer. It has some architectural appeal created by the alternating stitches of dc, puff stitch and sc.

3) Striped Mug Cozy ~ Designed by Little Monkeys Crochet
My boys have had the sweetest preschool teachers this year. I think mug cozies make awesome teacher gifts, so I decided (probably rather optimistically) that I was going to design each teacher her very own cozy.

4) Memaw’s Favorite Hot Pad ~ Designed by Danyel Pink
My grandmother (Memaw) made all of the grandkids a beautiful herringbone-stitch afghan. I used her favorite stitch to create this thick, colorful hot pad.

5) Spike Stitch Cowl ~ designed by Kim Guzman
Chunky yarn is great for making quick crochet gifts!

6) Chubby Sheep ~ Designed by Marie Segares
Just in time for the holidays, the pattern also includes (optional) instructions to transform Chubby Sheep into an ornament or hanging decoration.

7) Ribbed Fingerless Mitts ~ Designed by Stitches N Scraps
As I promised yesterday, here is the free pattern for the fingerless mitts I’ve been making this week! If you need any last minute gifts, there’s still time to whip up a few pairs of these; they work up really quickly. I’ve made 8 pairs so far, and I’ll most likely be making another pair or two tonight.

8) Lorraine ~ Free Crochet Ear Warmer ~ Designed by Jessie Rayot
The littles and I wanted to give their awesome principal a Christmas gift. So I came up with a quick ear warmer pattern that buttons in the back. This is a great way to keep ears warm, without a lot of damage to styled hair!

9) Easy Crochet Flower Headband ~ Designed by Simply Collectible
This pattern has been used to decorate gifts, market bags, hats, Easter baskets, headbands (obviously), clips, dresses and so much more.

Don’t forget to check out some of the other great Round Ups that have happened in Blogland over the last week!
