Christmas gifts knitting

The scent of gingerbread and fir green is in the air, wrapping paper crackles, children's eyes light up - the pre-Christmas season begins to enchant us! And how wonderful the actual festivities become when handmade little things, made with so much love, are placed under the tree.

To make your choice a little easier, if you want to knit your loved ones, you will find in this inspiration many ideas for hats, headbands, gauntlets and so on. Have fun browsing and a wonderful Advent season!

A real classic: caps!

Leeni Hoi - Eira Hat
You can find sooo many hats at Maschenfein: For example the Eira Hat...

...the famous Oslo cap...
Frieda Christmas shawl
... or our fine knitted hat Frieda.

The advantage of hats: They are quick to knit, keep your ears warm and often suit both men and women. What is important to us when it comes to hats? Besides the cut, it's the yarn. One of our recent favorites is Lima from Lamana. You can find it in the Eira Hat by Leni Hoi, for example - here in combination with the silk-mohair yarn Premia.

You are always on the right side with a pure merino yarn like Sunday from Sandnes. This is used in the well-known Oslo Hat model from PetiteKnit, which you can also knit in children's and men's sizes.

If you like knitting pattern, you will of course also find what you are looking for here. For example, our Friedahat in Como and Premia or single-ply in Milano (all from Lamana). There would also be matching cuffs and a shawl, we just wanted to say ...

We also highly recommend heavy yarns such as Maximo and Tibetan from Pascuali or - although somewhat thinner - Double Sunday from Sandnes. All three will keep your head warm and are perfect for last-minute gifts. Just click on "To all kits with this yarn" and you will immediately see which kits we have created for you.

We muck in until spring

Such a blanket has of course also something as a Christmas gift!

If you like it very, very cozy, you can also knit blankets well. With heavy or double held yarns here is also a quick result.

This model is available from SANDNES, for example. With a final size of 140 x 180 cm, the blanket looks perfect on your sofas. Alternatively, you can of course also give baby blankets as gifts or enlarge them as required.

Maschenfein in felt fever

2020 was the year of felting at Maschenfein. And you know what? It just stays that way. Because felted slippers, small felt bags or matching gloves are and will remain great Christmas presents. Another brand new addition to our portfolio is the Filli knitted hot water bottle cover. What do you need for all these knitted little things? The knitting pattern of course, pure, untreated wool such as Fritid yarn from Sandnes and a washing machine. Then nothing stands in the way of your felt gift production!

Warm for the hands

We love cuffs. And that's why they are the perfect Christmas gift for us. Different yarns are used in our knitting kits. Sometimes it's hard to choose. But one of our favorites is Cashmere 6/28 from Pascuali like the Cuffs Elsa.

Many fine knit cuff designs:

Gauntlets Lexow
Gauntlets with braids

The Lexow cuffs are made of cozy Snefnug from CaMaRose and the Cusco alpaca yarn from Lamana is used for the cuffs with cables. We would also like to recommend our cuff collections to you. As you can see, we just can't get enough of these practical wrist warmers!

Knitwear for children and men

Simple socks are something every man can use: Basic so cks from Paula_M.

Colorful mittens are a great gift for the little ones.
And this simple scarf suits everyone: zigzag scarf from Maschenfein.

The question of knitted gifts for children and men comes up again and again. Quite rightly, of course! The good news is that there is a large selection here too. Whether socks, gloves or scarves - the number of pattern is diverse. Maschenfein recommends simple socks such as the basic socks from Paula_m. The design is conceived for many sizes and the Perfect yarn from Sandnes has something for every taste.

Colorful children's gloves like those from PetiteKnit are also a lovely gift and will come off your needles quickly. And designs such as the zigzag scarf or the Encadré loop are definitely not just for women!

Knitted trifles

Christmas now came sooner than expected? We understand only too well! Self-knitted gifts are fortunately still possible. In the form of small scarves for example, cute cozy monsters, scrunchies or or or.

Beautiful knitted decoration for Christmas

If you like knitting decorations, you will of course also find what you are looking for at Maschenfein - especially for Christmas! Whether it's a twisted Advent wreath, wrapped candy canes or felted and embroidered hearts as (gift) tags - the Norwegian yarn manufacturer Sandnes has the right decorative item for every taste. Incidentally, crocheters will also get their money's worth here: some of the pattern from the two Christmas magazines are only made with one needle. 😉 And pssst: As the Sandnes magazine Tema 69 is no longer published, we can offer you the individual pattern free of charge as a pdf if you buy the matching yarn. You can find the matching knitting kits here.
