Ideas for Quick & Easy Knit and Crochet Handmade Gifts by Kristin Omdahl
The holiday season is coming. Starting next month, we have Sweetest Day October 15, Boss Day on October 17, and Halloween on October 31. I have been busy working on some simple gift ideas for Boss Day, but they truly translate into quick & easy handmade gifts for anyone. And as we approach the rest of the holiday season, through New Year’s Eve, I will be continuing to post more quick and easy gift ideas. So far I have compiled 23 of my YouTube projects into a playlist called
Quick Handmade Gifts
Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be first to know when I have more projects added. I’m really inspired to create gift ideas for everyone that are quick, easy and handmade for this holiday season. Bonus for my friends and family, right? I’m including hostess gifts when you go to a party, jewelry, accessories, home dec… and nothing will take more than a couple hours to complete.
Inspired by Boss Day, which is a tricky holiday in my opinion, I came up with a collection of coffee cup cozies. Not only are they adorable, but they are also a great way to learn new techniques. If you don’t already know how to knit or crochet bobbles, you can learn how to with these quick patterns and video tutorials. Each of the photos below is hyperlinked to the free pattern download on my website. And from there you can watch the youtube tutorial videos for extra support.

I would love to see your creations. Just as much fun as making these myself is the satisfaction I get from seeing my designs come to life and other crochet fans wearing them too. There are now 2 ways you can share what you have done!
- Share yours by joining Create. Share. Inspire on Facebook where you can interact with me as well as many other members who have a love of knitting and crochet just like you! It is a wonderful and safe place to share your photos of finished projects in my knitting or crochet patterns or yarns, and to see what others are making, too.
- I have recently added a wonderful new interactive section to the website which I invite you to take part in, it has been a smashing success and such fun so far. It is the new “Share a Project” section. You, my creators, can upload images and descriptions of your creations to share with the ever growing community! To upload simply click here.
Additionally, I host a livestreaming podcast weekday on my YouTube Channel called Create Share Inspire Podcast. You can join the audience and even ask me questions LIVE! I often do a show and tell, or quick demo and I always interact with the live audience. It is a lot of fun!
