This time of year is all accessory knitting for me! My needles are clicking, I am finishing hats and Christmas sweaters, and the blocking boards are full of gifts waiting to be wrapped. So how about a simple toque to get you through? Easy Peasy!
As you may have noticed, this year Emily and I have been taking a new look at some of our old favorites and the Easy Peasy was definitely one of mine. So simple and satisfying! I’ve combined 2 of my older patterns, the Easy Peasy and the Ear Flap Cap and put them together. The pattern now includes options with or without earflaps and comes sized for the whole family. If you already have the pattern you will receive an update with the new version.
Pattern: Easy Peasy

I am a big hat knitter at this time of year. I think they make a great gift, they are a great way to stash bust (just one skein will usually do it!), and did I mention they are pretty quick?
How about you? What are your favorite gift knits?
