Christmas is just over a week away, and there are only a few days left to finish up those hand crafted holiday gifts. If you need to get a few more done before the big day we have some great quick knit inspiration today! These projects look impressive and will be sure to please your loved ones but are small and simple enough to get done in plenty of time.

First we have worsted weight patterns. These projects take just one skein of Swans Island Natural Colors Merino Worsted or our new All American Collection. For most knitters these projects can be knit in just a couple nights of dedicated knitting.
