Editor’s choice: Quick hostess gift knits for Thanksgiving

Nothing says thank you like a hand-made gift.  If you want to make a thoughtful gift for your host or hostess this Thanksgiving, or make some fun contributions to the decor, we’ve hand picked some super fast knits that you can easily make before the big day!

Big Pumpkin by Denisas Toys Joys

Why not knit a pumpkin for the table? Knit this bouncy beauty for Thanksgiving, to bring bounty to the festivities! It works up speedily in bulky yarn – something like Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky is the perfect choice and it won’t cost a fortune either.

Happy Feet by Dana Gervais

We promise you these are the most beautifully comfy house socks we’ve ever come across. Dana Gervais’ pattern uses bulky weight yarn, so you’ll be able to knit them super fast, and they are adaptable to any foot length. The pattern includes amendments for narrow, average and wide feet too. Knit on DPNs or circulars, whichever you prefer – but these are a thoughtful gift for the person who has cooked you a magnificent Thanksgiving dinner!
