Little fun knits that makes a great gift!

I like to knit small projects that are fast but still give a bit of a challenge. It is much easier to learn new skills when you are starting a small project then when you are starting a big one. It´s not so daunting when you know the fiddling will only last for a few short rounds!

Smart phone cosies are just that kind of project. It takes about three hours to make one and there are endless possibilities for patterns!

If you have set your eyes on a beautiful Faire Isle s_MG_7289_medium2weater and are new to stranded knitting (colour work) then a little project is just the thing to try if stander knitting is something you will stick with through a sweater.

Some of my phone cosies and an iPad cosy are featured in the current issue of Interweave Knits Gifts. And these small knitted cosies are the perfect gift!

 

You can knit one up in your friends favourite colour, or Dad can get one in a colour that matches his car!

 

This cup cosy pattern is available for free on Ravelry.

 

There are lots of small fun usable project you can try if you want to check out stander knitting. The “to-go” cup sleeve is fast to knit and great to gift.
