We’re a week away from Christmas, and there’s still time for gifts that only take an afternoon to whip up. We have some great selections for accessories that will work up quickly in cozy heavy yarns and wow the crowd when you open gifts.
This Oban hat by Thea Colman is a fabulous cabled hat that comes together quickly in a worsted. Classic cables and garter panels work for everyone, with a gentle slouch and potential for pom pom fun. This hat will work up beautifully in our De Rerum Natura Gilliat (273 yds, $16); with a rainbow of beautiful wools you can have a hat for everyone, including yourself.
Chunky Walnut by Katrin Schubert is another beautiful hat you can work up in a few hours. Made in Brooklyn Tweed’s Quarry, this chunky hat gently transitions from ribs to lace in a delicate wave. This hat can be made with a brim, slouchy, with a folded brim, and all sorts of personal touches. We have the full range of colors and you can have this ready for a last minute gift.
Woolfolk Hygge is beautifully soft merino, and it’s incredibly warm and snuggly for those snowy days. And just in time for this last week of gift knitting they have two new patterns to whip up something special. Varm is a 3-in-1 scarf, throw, and cowl for all your needs. From two skeins for a cozy cowl, up to a ten skein throw, this fully reversible cable pattern is ideal for a matched set of gifts, or a little something different for everyone on your list. Knit in the super chunky Hygge, Varm will work up quickly, and be a winner of a gift.
If you’re looking for something equally snuggly, the Jule pullover comes in child and adult sizes for matching winter fun. Made of the same Hygge, Jule uses a modified garter stitch to work up quickly for yourself and any little ones in your life.
Taking a break from hats, Getting Warmer made from Woolfolk Luft is a free pattern from Espace Tricot. Using three skeins, this cowl is worked from the bottom up, with easy ribbing and a slouchy neck for squishy warmth on the go.
