6 Quick Knits for Holiday Gifts

December 11, 2018

The holiday season is here and for those opting to make a handmade gift, it's time to look at some quick projects. Lucky for our knitting friends, we have plenty of patterns that are perfect for last-minute gifts. We've compiled a list of 6 knitting patterns to help your loved ones warm-up this winter. We have two magnificent thick yarns made of 100% natural fibers that will allow you to finish a knit project every weekend until Christmas!

About The Yarn: Woolstok Jumbo

This luxurious bulky yarn is one of our newest releases. Inspired by the popularity of Woolstok Worsted, this Jumbo-weight yarn is crafted from the same high quality Peruvian Highland sheep. What makes this yarn so special is the unique braided structure. This construction holds the fibers together which reduces pilling, so you can wear this bulky piece for years to come.

Best of all, all of our Jumbo patterns are complimentary so go ahead and download them all!

1. Arm Knit Wrap

Only nine stitches wide, this knitting pattern may be a simple knit, but it looks nothing less than stunning. Learn the speedy arm-knitting technique while using two cones of Woolstok Jumbo. With it's loose gauge, you can add a big button or shawl pin to secure your knit wrap.

2. Oslo Jumbo Boa

This is a great project for new knitters. Cast on 3 stitches and start knitting in stockinette. One cone of Woolstok Jumbo goes a long way to create a 93 inch long boa. Have fun styling and wrapping this scarf to match any occasion or outfit.

Okay, okay, we realize that this is a crocheting and not a knitting pattern; but we couldn't resist adding it to the list! This new complimentary pattern is crocheted with 2 cones of Woolstok Jumbo. We adore it as a holiday gift because anyone and everyone will be able to use and love it. Perhaps you will make one for yourself too. What better way to store your crafting supplies that a hand-crocheted basket?
