Quick Gifts for the Holidays

It’s the first day of December, but no need to hit the panic button just yet – we’ve got plenty of fun, giftable pattern ideas to whip up for those knitworthy AND crochetworthy folks on your holiday gift list! We’ve conveniently sorted each pattern suggestion by yarn base so that you can grab your favourite skeins and cast on right away. You’ll find a mixture of both free and paid patterns, some of which specifically call for our yarn, and some which would look absolutely fabulous knit up in our yarns. Enjoy!
