Marvellous Makes for Christmas

November 10, 2017

 

We love a make! Christmas is a great excuse to get your craft on and turn up the hygge dial whilst creating. It also means that your end result can either be displayed, worn or gifted in all it's unique and custom glory. Double the warm glow!! Here are our top 5 makes in enough time for you to get them finished for this festive season. 

 

1. Cosy Knits

Knitting feels good! A whole host of celebrities have shared their love for the craft - from Kristen Stewart to SJP to Ryan Gosling! It helped me keep (relatively) calm during my second pregnancy and meant I created my first ever baby blanket that was donated to charity. I'm certainly not the most talented knitter but it is surprising how far the most basic skills can take you. Many a scarf has since been created for friends using a free pattern on the wool's cuff. You can buy some fab 'all in' kits by the likes of Wool and the Gang, which gives you everything you need to make a whole host of cool projects (or give as a gift) - the pom pom hat pictured below is one of their beginner kits. Why stick to traditional methods either? The snood also pictured below was made with merino yarn and was knitted without needles just using my arms. P.S. If you really like it but don't want to make it yourself, there are a few left in our store following this link. Interested to see more knitted inspiration? Here's our Pinterest board: Knitting Rocks.
