It's that time of year! Time to get your knit on and give awesome handmade gifts. Here at Knit Collage, we could not be any more fired up about going the handmade gift route. There's something so incredibly special about receiving a hand knit gift- usually I'm in awe that someone spent so much time creating something beautiful just for me. What could be more thoughtful and memorable?  


This year we've broken down our top hand knit gift ideas into three categories based on how long they take to make: 1-2 hours, 3-5 hours, and 5+ hours. Take a peek below at all these beauties. We hope this list will inspire you to knit some of your loved ones some very special holiday gifts.
