Knitting a gift for someone is a lovely thing to do. You're giving someone a thoughtful gift that you've invested a lot of time and love into.
Here are five projects to knit as gifts this year.
1. Tea Mouse
The Tea Mouse is a project you can complete in a weekend. Suitable for any skill level, Tea Mice make lovely gifts for both children & adults. They sit on a shelf in an office or bedroom with their nose pointed in the air, making you smile every time you see them.
You can also add a sachet of lavender to the Tea Mouse when stuffing for an extra special touch.
2. Little Picnic Owl
Sweet Little Picnic Owl is a shy and modest creature who will blush when you praise her. She sits unassumingly on a shelf, waiting for you to notice her which you are sure to do as she is very cute. Knit her in different weights to create different sizes, and make a family of owls.
Little Picnic Owl knitting pattern is available here.
3. Posie Pinafore
Do you have a little girl to make for? Knit a sweet pinafore for her favourite doll, or perhaps as an added accessory to one Santa might be bringing her. Suitable for all skill levels, you can knit the pinafore plain or with a border of flowers.
