Child Size Fingerless Gloves and Granny Slouch Hat Set – First Christmas Gift 2017 Done!

Free online patterns make Christmas crocheting easy! 

Don’t tell her but I finally made my granddaughter the fingerless gloves she asked me for a while ago.

I used a skein of the Stitch Studio by Nicole yarn that I was sent (free of charge) to try from AC Moore. (Thank you AC Moore!)  My granddaughter loves the color purple so I used the Orchid yarn and I think it turned out spectacular!  Take a look.

I found my patterns at Stitch11.com.  The instructions were easy to follow and best of all, the patterns are free.  If you’d like to make a set or two yourself, you can find the patterns here:

I used the child sized patterns but Stitch11 also has these same matching patterns in adult sizes which I definitely plan on using in the future.

The Stitch Studio by Nicole yarn is super soft and easy to work with.  There wasn’t a knot or yarn barf in sight and the color was so rich and beautiful.  I’ll be using more of this great yarn in my near future as well.  And I’m not just saying this because the yarn was a gift.  The quality is really incredible for such an affordable yarn.  I highly recommend it to all.

I’ve got two granddaughters to make things for.  Both girls always love it when I crochet things for them.  This set is for the older one.  She’s still a little girl but likes to think of herself as a teenager.

Do you give handmade crocheted gifts to your family and friends during the holidays?  Since I got into crocheting I’ve been trying to include something handmade in my holiday gift giving each year.  I think people appreciate the thoughtfulness and I think it makes for a much more personal gift.

Please share your thoughts on gifting homemade items, crocheted or any other type, in the comments.  I love hearing from my readers!

  1. I give my stuff away all year that it’s actually rare that I give crocheted gifts to family but I do give crocheted gifts to my co-workers and boss. I sometimes I ask if their’s anything I can make and sometimes I just go off of what I know of them. It makes it more personal and they seem to love it. At least that’s what they tell me. 🙂

    Something hand made, but it might be stitching, knitting or sewing.

  4. Such beautiful work! I adore giving handmade gifts for Christmas as much as I love receiving them. I find that I plan too many gifts and never quite get them all done in time! 💞

  5. Last year I made everyone something. Fingerless gloves and messy bun hats were the most popular. Can’t wait to see what you make!

  6. I love the color of the yarn especially. I have made at least one crochet gift for the last four years. I think I have only made and kept 2 or 3 things for myself. I greatly prefer making gifts over buying them.

    I definitely gift handmade but only to people I know will appreciate it. It’s hard to know sometime though! This colour is amazing and the set looks beautiful, your granddaughters are lucky 🙂

  8. I’ve given one or two crochet goodies as gifts in the past, but this year I’m hoping to give everyone on my list at least a little crocheted something. My brother is definitely getting the 3 original starter pokemon, and my mum has asked for an amigurumi fish, so that’s 2 of them sorted!

    That yarn is gorgeous!! The color is so rich! I like to go with a little bit of a theme with my crocheted Christmas gifts. Last year everyone got a pair of slippers. This year I’ve already decided that I will be making everyone “Ugly Christmas Sweaters”!! I really should start on those soon since I need to make 5 of them plus one for myself!! 😀
