QUICK KNIT #5: KNITTED WASHCLOTH
A baby washcloth is easily made using a dishcloth pattern. Just make sure to use a nice soft cotton yarn for baby in sweet baby colours. Why not pair this finished washcloth gift with a bar of handmade soap?
QUICK KNIT #4: COWL SCARF
The best part about knitting these cowls is that the scarf is knit in the round, which means to complete the project you knit on circular needles. circular needles are in fact much easier to knit with and manage your project with than 2 needles.

This is my go to pattern to whip together dishcloths to pair with canning, baking or other handmade items for holiday gift giving. Place them in a basket and your good to go for any occasion.
QUICK KNIT #2: KITCHEN SCRUBBIES
My favourite handy little kitchen scrubby using cotton and variegated scrubbie rough yarn.

Coasters are a great knitted gift idea to knit up in thirty minutes or less!
