We decided to help you out this year and gathered some of our favorite creative crochet gift ideas which include a boho wallhanging, fun mug cozies, crochet baskets, beanies and many more.
What makes a good gift pattern?
My two main criteria for most of my crochet gifts are Time and Difficulty. The time is takes to make it and how complicated the pattern is.
Like most of you, come gift giving season I don’t normally have a lot of extra time to make my Christmas presents.
And while I do start my more involved crochet gifts earlier in the year, there are always last minute ideas that I just have to try.
That is not to say that I won’t attempt something more advanced. I just try to gauge whether or not I can finish this project in time for Christmas or a Birthday.
