How to Pick the Perfect Crochet Gift
A few years ago I wrote the Handmade Gift Giving Guide that had 5 questions to ask yourself to help you pick the perfect gift for someone on your list. I decided to put a mini-guide in the Holiday planner to make picking the perfect gift nice and easy.
Once you have read through the guide you can use the “Perfect Gift List” to log the answers to your questions and brainstorm the perfect gift. The guide also provides a lot of suggestions for great gifts for different types of people.
Of course, if you are looking for the perfect pattern for someone, make sure to check our my patterns page. There are 200+ free crochet patterns that would make wonderful gifts! Below are some of my favorite crochet gift patterns with the links to the pattern listed below the photo.
If you answer the questions on the guide, I am sure you will be able to pick out the right gift for everyone on your list.
Gift Giving List
This is a simple list for listing all the gifts you have decided to make for your loved ones. You can list the receiver’s name, what kind of project you decided on, the name of the pattern you have chosen, the source (blog name or designer), and the amount of time it will take to complete the project.
Holiday Decor List
There are more than gifts to make at this time of year. It is also fun to whip up some new holiday decorations, but it is also easy to run out of time to do this. This list provides you a spot to list the pattern you would like to make, the source of the pattern, the estimated amount of time to make the pattern, and when you want the project completed.
I released a Halloween pattern two days before Halloween last year. It is just so easy for time to get away from you. Below are some photos and links to Fall and Winter holiday patterns to help get your list started.
Estimated Time Page
I really think this is the most important page. You will want to record how long it takes to complete certain types of projects. Does it take you 2, 3, or 4 days to complete a hat? I would have loved to fill out this page for you, but everyone crochets at a different rate.
What I recommend is to simply plan out a few patterns, like a hat, a scarf, and a cup cozy. Work those patterns up and record how long it takes you to finish each pattern. Once you have this information, you can use it to be able to make a schedule for when you plan to work on and complete each project. Some projects you may only want to make once, so estimating your estimated time is just fine too.
Calendar and Schedule Pages
So now that we know what we plan to make and how long it will take us, it is time to make a crocheting schedule. Use the calendar pages to schedule when you plan to work on each project. Remember to make sure your home decor items are completed before the holidays arrive.
Note: The month pages do not have the day’s numbers on them. This is so you can print these pages out and use them year after year.
Use colored pencils to record what day you will work on a certain project. You can use your estimated time page to determine how many days each project will need. I left a ‘rest day’ or ‘catch up day’ between each project because we do not want to get burnt out on crocheting. Scheduling out your projects like this will help you determine if there is enough time to get all your projects done. You may even be able to squeeze in a few last-minute stocking stuffers.
If you can’t fit everything on the schedule, then you will need to find gifts that take less time to make. It is better to find that our now than at the beginning of December.
