Sep 12, 2013

Everyone loves receiving handmade gifts! They are a gorgeous example of your love and friendship. A handmade present allows you to choose the perfect pattern, the perfect color, and the perfect yarn for an individual-so much more fun than picking a mass produced gift off the shelf.

In this great free eBook, you will find a wonderful selection of gift ideas for everyone, from juggling balls, dolls, and bags to hats and a baby cardigan. Worsted weight wool to cotton thread, there are projects in any yarn weight. And you will find the perfect quick gift idea. Which one will you make first?

 
 

The Toujours Hat by Kim Werker is the perfect design for men and women, just have fun with the color. This warm hat is worked in half double crochet which also has the advantage of working up quickly. Worked from the top down, concentrated increases at the crown also create a fun textural element. And the simple colorwork band will draw the eye.

 
 

Add a touch of fun and a few laughs with the In Jiffy Juggling Balls by Toni Rexroat. Filled with natural birdseed to add the perfect amount of weight and worked in affordable worsted-weight yarn, you can whip up a set of these fun toys in an afternoon. I still love to pull out my set and practicing my amateur juggling skills; it's a pleasant break from juggling the pressure of day-to-day life.

 
  The Peppermint Hat and Scarf by Marilyn Murphy is perfect for a toddler stepping out into the chilly bite of fall or winter. A single skein in each of the colors is enough to crochet both the tassled earflap hat and simple stripe scarf. Swap in different colors for the boys in your life or for any child who doesn't dream in pink.
 
  Heading to the farmer's market? The Green Market Bag by Laura Rintala is the perfect accessory. An easy and fun way to tread a little lighter on the earth is to bring your own shopping bags, and this gorgeous cotton tote is the perfect way to show off your crochet. The easily memorized pattern creates a large bag that will carry plenty of purchases when full but is pleasantly light when empty.
 
  The Charlie Brown Baby Cardigan by Kat Pullen features a zigzag chevron stripe reminiscent of loveable Charlie Brown's iconic shirt. Worked in double and half double crochet, this baby cardigan is perfect for beginning crocheters. Sized for a 3 month old, the color options are endless. Try this great gender neutral or boy combination, reach for the pink, or try dad's favorite sports colors.
 
  The Victorian Lace Bracelet by Sarah Read is the ideal handmade gift for your fashionable friends. Don't let the thread and tiny steal hook scare you, this innovative pattern works up quickly and is easily memorized. Thread a silky ribbon through the lace pattern and fasten with a feminine bow or choose your favorite bracelet fastener.
 
  The Love Ewe Nesting Dolls by Sarah Read will provide hours of make-believe fun. These fairy-tale style characters, nest together to and come complete with their own story of love and charity. The original pattern is worked in thread but could be easily substituted with DK or worsted-weight yarn for a set of entertaining amigurumi.
