If the people that you knit for are sick and tired of you knitting them scarves then this is a really quick and easy idea for a knitted Christmas Present!
I made this last December and I think it only took me a couple of evenings to knit.
It’s in an Aran weight yarn with 5mm needles so it does knit up quite quickly and the pattern was a simple diamond one using just knit and purl stitches.
I found the pattern in my Knitting Pattern Folder. Yes, that holy binder of pages ripped from knitting and crochet magazines merits capital letters!
I pulled it out of a magazine a while ago and liked the look of it. It’s one of the few patterns in there I’ve actually done! Usually I just flick through the pages and try to find some inspiration.
I just double checked and it’s by Sian Brown and from Let’s Knit Magazine but I have no idea what issue number!
It’s a bit loose and fluffy because it’s been in use for nearly 8 months!
I’m sure if you were to do a quick Google search you could find a good pattern for a coffee pot/ cafetière!
I did find one on Ravelry for a really cool Dalek one by Coryna Blasko…
Or, if Dr Who isn’t your thing, how about this cabled one by Ruth Churchman? (also on Ravelry)
Or…just freestyle your own. Make a rectangle and add buttons! 🙂
