Christmas is not just a matter of gifts, but finding a handmade gift under the tree on Christmas morning is certainly a very welcome thing. Inside a handmade gift there is something about ourselves, our time and our passions.
So… what could be nicer than receiving a handmade gift? To do it!
We at Laines du Nord have thought about giving you a hand and offering you many nice ideas for your gifts, decorations, Christmas decorations or simply to relax and knit during the holidays.
On our site, in the PATTERNS section you can find and download for free many ideas for do-it-yourself gifts to do in less than a month!
Here are some of them:
Original wool balls are worked with the “Stranded” technique, snowflakes and stylized trees decorate them. The classic combination of alternating white and red colors recalls the traditional Christmas mood.
“Matera” is the wool used to make them, 100% Italian Merino Gentile wool, a resistant and anti-pilling yarn with a short 0 km supply chain.
A beautiful wool cushion made with the “Stranded” technique can be an original gift idea for home decor lovers. You can make it with the color combinations you prefer by choosing from the wide color chart of the “Vasto” 100% Italian Merino Gentile wool yarn with an intermediate thickness, slightly elastic and with zero pilling.
Neck warmer and hat made with the “Double Knitting” technique make this splendid reversible set, unique and original. We always recommend using a combination of contrasting colors by choosing them from the color chart of the 100% Italian Merino Gentile wool “Matera” yarn, very versatile, suitable for various types of processing.
Refined and elegant, the shaded shawl is made with the “Poema Alpaca” yarn, the gradient effect is embellished by the prestigious composition, the sequence of colors creates perfect shades and makes the garment one of a kind. A single ball of yarn is enough to make the shawl thanks to the very high yield of the yarn. A gift certainly of great effect!
These are just some of the ideas you will find on our site to create unique and original Christmas gifts. Just under a month to Christmas and even if it seems early to think about gifts, now is the right time to choose the project you prefer and start doing it!
