Whether you’re panicking about Christmas gifts (21 days to go) or really really really panicking about Chanukah gifts (4 days to go), you’ve still got time to make a lovely handmade gift. Here are 3 designs you can make in an afternoon.

Chain of Hearts Scarf

This heart motif scarf is a quick project. It uses 225 yards of worsted weight yarn. (You can easily find that in your stash, right?). The picture above is from Andrea (@springsplndr). She shortened the side strips to 4 dc, since she only had 200 yards of yarn, which makes this scarf an even faster project.
Cinnamon Sticks Fingerless Gloves

The fashionista (or fashionista at heart) on your list would adore a pair of fingerless gloves. You can make this lovely set in an afternoon.
Schonen Herbst Mobius Scarf

Make this in a single color, two colors, or as many colors as you like (stash buster!). With this lovely pattern you can knock out your gift stitching in a snap.

So what are you waiting for? Pick one, grab your hook, and get stitching!
