Gift Guides: Fun and Quick Accessories

Hey GYI!  Our winter sale is coming up, so start those hooks and needles.  This is the first of a few pattern guides with recommendations for sale products.  Check back every so often in the next few weeks for more knitting and crocheting patterns!

A few notes:

  • Multicolored products tend to sell better than plain ones
  • In crocheting, things with holes tend to require a greater variety of stitches and aren’t as warm for winter.  However, they are quicker to make and look very fancy.
  • If you want to make any of these patterns, but are worried about not being able to read the pattern or do a certain stitch, don’t worry!  Our highly skilled crocheters can help you out at our next meeting this Sunday at 8 in Schapiro’s lobby lounge.
  • If you would like to get supplies, drop us a comment here or on Facebook so we can organize another trip to a yarn store!

Our Crocheter-in-Chief has worked up a list of relatively simple, quick crochet patterns to make for the sale.  Thanks Sam!

Simple Braided Headband

Braided pattern made up of only chains and slips stitches (the two simplest stitches!) You will need hair ties for these. If you need GYI to provide hair ties, try to let us know ahead of time. We will try to bring them to all meetings.  Also ask about making a Chain Headband at the meeting

Lacy Striped Scarf

Requires knowledge of a few stitches but a great learning opportunity! GYI! Officers can help you with this one.  Quick pattern & fairly easy!

Mesh Scarf

Chains & double crochet. Quick and simple! Replace double crochet with single crochet to make it warmer. The final product will not look quite as put together as the Lacy Striped Scarf.

Fast & Easy Cap

Labeled as a men’s cap, but could easily work for anyone.  Mostly double crochet.

Santa Hat

Slightly more complicated, but great practice for reading patterns and expanding your abilities.  GYI! points to anyone who makes this one!
