Are you looking for a quick Christmas knit? Then you’ve come to the right place!
My Festive Gift Bag pattern is perfect for using up odds and ends of DK weight yarn to create a handknitted pouch you can fill with little goodies or a special treat to hang on the tree or give as gifts.
Knit in the round from the bottom-upwards, the small size of the project gives the perfect opportunity to learn, try and practice a few new knitting techniques that will come in handy in later projects. A different version of this pattern appeared in Knit Now magazine last year and has been spruced up, rewritten and now contains 6 different motifs for you to adorn the bags with including, a snowflake, Christmas tree, hearts, reindeer, a bell and a snowflake flurry pattern.
I am running a special promotion on the gift bag pattern: You can choose to enter the code HOHOHOLIDAY at the checkout and save 20% on the price or alternatively, pay the full price and I will donate the 20% (50p) to Project Linus UK.
This is a charity very close to my heart at the moment as they have been providing beautiful hand-crafted blankets and quilts for my new niece who has been in hospital since her birth just over a month ago. The blankets have made such a difference and mean a lot to her family and all the families in the units who receive them. It’s a wonderful charity and really does make a difference. You can read more about their work over on the website where you will also find details about making donations of finished blankets and materials for knitters and quilters to craft the blankets. For those of you in America, find out more via the Project Linus US website.
The promotion runs from now through to end of day GMT on 24th December 2013.
Let the festivities begin!
