How long do the quick knitting projects take to knit?

Each of these patterns take about 2-6 hours to knit, which is great news for those of us with a short attention span or those of us that are procrastinators who need quick Christmas gift ideas. Huh, I never put those 2 together before, short attention span and procrastinator, but I’m definitely both! lol!

All of these patterns are knit using super bulky yarn, Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick , so they knit up quickly!

Get started on your gift list & check out the quick knit gifts below!
