It’s time to get the needles ready for some speedy Christmas present knitting. If you are not halfway through that Aran jumper by now you are quickly running out of time! Here are a few ideas for quick knits for the men in your life!

1. George Hat & Scarf

George Hat & Scarf set knitted in tow tones of lovely alpaca yarn

The George Hat & Scarf set has long been a favourite of ours, and now we have taken new pictures to show just how brilliantly this set works for men! It’s an uncomplicated stitch pattern worked on big needles making this a quick project to finish. This is definitely one that will be possible to finish in time for Christmas whilst it looks like it took you all year!

2. Adie Hat

The Adie Hat – complete with pom pom

The pom pom hat is trendier than ever and popular both for men and women. This one suits the trendy man not scared of standing out from the crowd! This kit is available in our 10 shades of beautifully soft alpaca yarn.

3. Alfie Hat

Alfie Hat – a chunky knit hat

Here’s the quick fix! Made from 1 ball of our chunky alpaca yarn and knitted on big needles, this is a project you will finish in a couple of evenings. It’s knitted top down and can be made to the exact length you wish!

4. Darcy Snood

Darcy Snood knits up really quickly!

Looking for something different to make? Here’s an idea; the Darcy Snood works really well for guys who can’t be asked with long scarf flopping all over the place. This snood stays exactly were you want it, round your neck keeping it toasty warm.

5. Bolly Waistcoat

Bolly Waistcoat

Quick knitter? You have still got time for a slightly bigger project. The Bolly Wasitcoat is made using our Medium thickness yarn (equivalent to a Worsted weight, between a DK and Aran yarn) and on 6 mm needles. Knitted in the round and using mainly plain knitting it grows so fast you will be finished in no time at all!

There you have it, our top 5 ideas for knits for him you can still make in time for Christmas. What are you planning on knitting?
