We are now in serious crunch time! This is the time when some of us have been known to reassess our lists (again) and make a few changes. The beauty about crochet is how amazingly fast you can create something stunning, so this list is all about crochet and quick.
Simple Seed Beanie by Kirsten Hollaway
I love the look of this beanie! It would work for anyone on your list in need of a hat! Crocheted in a heavier worsted weight it should crochet up pretty quickly.
If you’ve spent any time browsing the crochet pattern pages of Ravelry recently you will have seen a flurry of mostly free amigurumi patterns for Baby Yoda. They’re free because it’s a trademarked by Disney, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use a free pattern to give the perfect gift to our favorite Star Wars fan. Baby Yoda is everywhere right now, and with the release of Star Wars: The Mandalorian on Disney+ it’s sure to be popular with any Star Wars fan. I think a couple of fans in our home will find them in their stockings.
Twisted Grove Fingerless Mitts by Tian Connaughton
We started off the year with a KAL by Tian and found her designs to be super easy and fun to follow. Tian also designs crochet items, and we’re guessing that she’s just as careful in her approach in crochet as she is to knit. These fingerless mitts are crocheted in an aran weight yarn making them super fast. Whip them up with a couple of skeins of Silky Wool Aran by Elsebeth Lavold to create something decadent for a favorite someone. We’re digging the cables created by crochet. Find out more here.
Chunky Basket pattern by Elizabeth Pardue
For the fellow yarn lover in your life that could do with a decorative place to store their current project in the living room! Elizabeth Pardue’s Chunky Basket would be a very quick crochet in a super chunky yarn and would be perfect for someone who needs a place to put their current project, their kid’s toys, or even their cat.
Rupert the Owl by Irene Strange
You may have noticed we have quite the thing for birds here at Birdhouse so how could we resist Rupert the Owl? I’m not sure that qualifies as quick unless you have mad crochet skills, but we love him so much. In this picture we’re using him as an ornament, but he actually presides over the living room all year round. Our Rupert was crocheted by @Jasminetea182.
