5 Ideas for Easy and Quick Knitting Gifts

When you think of knitting, what comes to mind? Warm socks and hats for winter? A cozy afghan for snuggling up on the couch? While all of those are great, there’s one thing that knitting is good at: quick and easy gifts! We have prepared Ideas for Easy and Quick Knitting Gifts for you.

Mug Cozy

Knitted mug cozies are simple, fast, and make great gifts. You can knit one in a matter of hours, and they come in all shapes and sizes. You can use any type of yarn you like, but I recommend using wool or acrylic yarn for durability. Cast on around 30 stitches, and knit in a garter stitch until your cozy is the desired length. Bind off, weave in your ends, and you’re done!


A headband is a great beginner project that can be whipped up in a matter of minutes. Plus, it’s the perfect way to show your loved one that you care—and that you put thought into their gift.

Phone Case

Knitted phone cases are easy to make and can be personalized in any way you want. Cast on 16 stitches in the first color. Knit 6 rows in stockinette stitch, then switch to the second color. Knit 6 more rows in stockinette stitch before binding off. Weave in all ends and you’re done!

Baby Booties

If you’re looking for quick and easy knitting gifts that’s sure to please, look no further than baby booties. They’re an essential item for any new parent, so you know they’ll get plenty of use. To make your booties extra special, personalize them with the baby’s initials or a cute character on the toes. You could even add a little loop to the back so they can be hung on a Christmas tree or door knob.


This one is a bit of a no-brainer, but a knitted dishcloth makes a great gift for anyone who loves to cook. If you’re not sure how to knit a dishcloth, there are plenty of tutorials online. And once you get the hang of it, you can crank them out in no time. Trust me, your friends and family will appreciate having a few extra dishcloths around, and they’ll be reminded of you every time they use them.
