If you’ve been too busy to really start thinking about your Christmas gifting, you’re not alone. It always seems like Christmas Eve is the busiest day of the shopping season at the malls near my house – I know this because I’m always waiting in line with everyone else, panicking because I waited until the last minute to get my gifting done! This year, don’t stress about finding a parking spot in that crowded mall lot. Instead, stay inside where it’s nice and warm and make a gift on your own!

These 10 free easy crochet patterns and knitting patterns are just the thing for the giver-in-need this holiday season. Each of them can be worked up in no time flat, and all of them are things that anyone would love to receive! And remember to breathe – the important things this season are spending time with your family and showing your loved ones you care, not the gifts you give or receive.
