Everyone needs some small gifts in a stash. Everyone needs to work up ‘just one more gift’ before the Big Eve arrives. Everyone loves to crochet smaller projects that work up quickly, make use of partial skeins, and bring cheer to others when they unwrap the little gem. Here are a few quickies with free patterns that you’ll enjoy crocheting and the recipients won’t even know it was a last minute addition to your To-Do list!
I love the chunky look and those massaging nubbies crocheted into this very quick pattern you can find here. Support another local artisan by purchasing a specially scented bar of home made soap – or make your own from the pourable soap making kits available at the craft big box stores.
This is an aptly named Last Minute Scarf because it works up so quickly. Yarn choice is everything for this one! Pick the right yarn and it will do most of the work for you. Get the free pattern here. This scarf is made with Lion Brand Mosaic but other yarns would work as well.
There seems to be a time when every little boy goes through a phase of loving snakes and other scary things. This cute scarf might be just right for a little guy in your life. Works up in no time!
This one can be worked up in the favorite colors of anyone on your gift list. It will look fine on a desk or bookshelf to corral pens, crochet supplies, sewing notions, or other stray items. Quick and adaptable. Free pattern is here.
Hope these ideas keep your hooks flying until the Big Eve or Day. I know you have way too much to do. I know I do. So, taking advantage of these quick projects makes sense. No one buy you will know how little time you actually spent working on a gift!
