If you are anything like us, you have a list a mile long and everything on it is DIY. We highly recommend starting now because time goes fast and lets face it: it takes time to make something DIY. If you are like us, making DIY holidays sounds great right now because you could save a little money with some extra effort and time. DIY gifts always have a special touch that other gifts can just not offer. Whatever your reason they are sure to love it and ask you for another one.
Speaking of the time it takes to make DIY holiday gifts: get started now. No, consider your projects when you are working down your list. Some projects will take longer than others obviously. That is why we love cowls. Depending on the length, they take a lot less time and are a must for those really cold locations. But, nothing beats a traditional scarf with a quick box hat or the traditional round hat. Both are excellent DIY holiday options as one can typically be worked up in one day.
With all that said, we put together some tips for your holiday DIY project list:
Make a DIY Holiday list
Make a Plan
Make a schedule and keep it
Get your patterns and supplies in time to stay on schedule
Get yarn and supply recommendations from our posts and patterns *see below, other articles and patterns
Make it personal (something They will like)
Consider your projects carefully. Keep it simple and fast so that you can complete your list in time
Use down time by taking your projects with you (lunch time)
Use the same pattern and different yarn to make it unique to each recipient

A long time crocheting student decided to take a knitting class (view our classes here) with me. Her experience with crocheting definitely helped her learn knitting fast! Although, she thinks crocheting is more forgiving than knitting. Nonetheless, she did very well. She recently shared a few of her crochet projects with me featured here in this article. Like many of us, she has gotten several projects done during the pandemic. Also, like a lot of us she has been working from home.
She used yarns similar to the ones below to create her blankets and you can too. Be sure to order enough yarn to complete your Holiday projects and check your dye lot number. Also give yourself enough time to receive your yarns and supplies.
