Gifts to Knit and Crochet for the Holidays
Christmas is less than 2 months away – that means gift knitting and crocheting is in full swing! We’ve rounded up some great new patterns that use Brown Sheep yarns and a few older favorites that we keep coming back to. We hope this provides you with a bit of inspiration as you craft for the holidays!
For Our Knitters
The new Two Color Brioche Raglan Pullover from Vogue Knitting’s Holiday 2018 issue is a worthy challenge for adventurous knitters. Two-color brioche rib in Brown Sheep Lanaloft Worsted keeps the darker color more prominent at the lower body and sleeves and the lighter color on the top sections. This sweater would be the perfect attire to wear to a holiday celebration, and would also be a nice surprise for a loved one on Christmas morning.
If you’re looking for something a bit smaller and quicker to knit, check out the Ribbed Hood, also from Vogue Knitting’s Holiday 2018 issue. Worked up in Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport, this garment can be worn as a festive cowl or a hood!
For a thoughtful gift for the home, check out the Tricolor Log Cabin Afghan and Pillow from Knit Simple’s Fall 2018 issue. This fun, bright set of accessories is worked up in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and can be made in the favorite colors of your intended recipient. Plus, you don’t have to worry about it fitting!
For a holiday-themed gift, or o add a festive spirit to your own decor, check out the Snowman Family from Interweave Knits’ Holiday 2016 Issue. These sweet snowmen are worked up in Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted and Chunky.
A set of Jolly Old Elves will add a touch of whimsy to your holiday season. These cheerful guys are worked out of Brown Sheep Nature Spun and Lana Boucle will bring a smile to anyone’s face. Make one or knit up a whole chorus line to dance down the center of your table or across your mantle.
For Our Crocheters
We just love the Sweet Storage Baskets from Interweave Crochet’s Fall 2018 issue. Made in a range of versatile shapes and sizes, these storage containers were designed with simplicity in mind using our Brown Sheep Burly Spun and Cotton Fine yarns. Accented with repeating circle motifs and leather handles, these baskets will add a beautiful decorative touch to your home or make a lovely gift for someone else.
If you need a quick last minute gift for a loved one, try the Market Cowl by Heidi Gustad. Who doesn’t need a workhorse accessory that is layering-friendly & serves double duty? The Market Cowl is a beginner-friendly crochet pattern that makes use of chain stitches, single crochet and slip stitches to great effect. Worked up in Brown Sheep Synchrony, this cowl is a gift that is sure to delight.
For maximum holiday spirit, check out the Mix-and-Match Stockings by Edie Eckman. From color combinations to embellishments, this stocking pattern is an empty palette for creating your own style. Use the mix-and-match concept to see how many different color combos/patterns can be generated from so little yarn. The pattern calls for Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted.
And finally, as a stocking stuffer or just to bring a little cheer to the season, check out the Sally the Snowflake by Stacey Trock. This adorable amigurumi is just the right project in this hectic season! This cutie calls for Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted.
We hope this pattern round up inspires your holiday crafting this year. We can’t wait to see what you make!
