One Hour Crochet Patterns – gift ideas for friends and neighbours


This year especially, it’s nice to spread some extra cheer to others. Sharing positive thoughts and a little “I’m thinking of you” token would be a special and meaningful way to connect with those you might not be able to normally visit with. How lovely it would be for a special friend, neighbour or community member to find a sweet little handmade gift on their doorstep or in their mailbox.

Check them out below:

Today I’m sharing some gift ideas that are perfect for spreading holiday cheer. All of the patterns included take under one hour to complete and direct links have been shared with permission from the designer.
