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!
