I have made so many of these that I know this pattern by heart! I work mine up with cotton yarn and the coolest buttons I can find. When I come across really cool, vibrant mugs, I try to pick up a few with this project in mind (I like to include the mug as part of the gift). I often embellish mine with crocheted flowers, skulls & crossbones, hearts and other appliqués that reflect the recipient's personality and style.
What guy on your gift list wouldn't love to get one of these awesome beanies? Although these would be great in some feminine colors for a gal, I tend to reserve this pattern for those hard-to-crochet-for dudes. Just pay close attention to the pattern and you can whip this up in no time.
How insanely cute is this hat? This is the perfect gift for that fashionista on your list. I've even made this for myself in three different colors! You can't go wrong with this beauty.
I don't know what it is about boot cuffs, but every time I gift these, people go nuts over them! Suddenly, everyone around them starts asking for a pair. Luckily, they are quick and easy so I don't mind making extras. I have a few different go-to patterns for boot cuffs, but the one I have featured here is my favorite.
Crocheting for kids is always so much fun! This sweet little lamb hat will surely put a smile on everyone's face. The website provides directions for sizing these to fit many different ages, which is always a plus. While you're there, check out her other hat patterns for kids. She has patterns for puppy hats, cupcake hats and more, that are all incredibly cute.
I am so in love with this ear warmer (and so is everyone that I've ever gifted one too!) that I have made myself one in 6 different colors! It is super duper easy and quick to make so whip some up while you're watching tv and you'll have some gifts ready in no time flat.
Who doesn't love to wrap themselves up in a warm and cozy scarf when it's freezing outside? Scarves make a great gift for anyone and the one above is one of my favorites. Sometimes I make it plain, other times I add tassels and a few times I've put some big ol' big pom-pons on each corner. The stitch is simple to do and really beautiful. It's also suitable for both men and women. Don't forget to check out the patterns for a matching hat and fingerless gloves she has available too!
