Favorite Holiday Patterns

The holidays are so close, I can practically taste them! Each day another door on my daughter’s advent calendar is opened in gleeful anticipation while I spend my day trying to conceive another nightly bout of elf on the shelf shenanigans. Everything in my kitchen is coated in cinnamon and powdered sugar, and Wham!’s Last Christmas is playing on an endless loop in my living room. Throughout all of the holiday hubbub, there is one constant source of respite and relaxation that I cling to: sitting & knitting. In the spirit of handmade holidays, I bring to you a whirlwind round up of some of my favorite holiday patterns!

These projects are quick knits, meaning you can finish them by the time Kris Kringle moseys into town.
