December is right around the corner and so I have organised a basket of small gifts that can be made up quickly and given away or kept and used as Christmas decorations. The Koala pattern is here. The Christmas hat is from a wonderful pattern by Anna Branford and is simple enough for a beginner to knitting and a quick and easy idea for the more advanced. If you need any help modifying this pattern to suit your project, please email me at my about page. I love to talk knitting and crochet.
Anna Branford has a craft book out now especially for beginners and those who like to make small things. Her book which features Violet Mackerel from the Violet mackerel series is so lovely, I urge everyone to check it out. It is called “how to make small things with Violet Mackerel”. This book would make the best gift for the little girl in your life and I will talk more about it later. I will finish with the pattern for the tiny hearts.
