LoveKnitting for Christmas

August 16, 2018

As the days get a little colder and the nights start drawing in, we’re starting to think about, dare we say it, Christmas! Of course for us, here at LoveKnitting, that means needles at the ready and time to get planning how many socks to knit, what Christmas jumper to make and all the baby outfits we’ll be gifting. But the questions is, when should I start? Good news, our clever makers have created a knitting calculator so you can work out how long it will take you to knit all your Christmas projects – from decorations to jumpers and socks – so you can start planning all your knitting projects well ahead of the festive season.

We’ve also teamed up with Boo Roo and Tigger Too to bring you an exciting knitting competition. To be in for a chance of winning 10 balls of our wonderfully bright Paintbox Simply Chunky Yarn in raspberry pink, simply enter here!

If you’re wondering what LoveKnitting is all about, firstly we’re a community of makers, made up of crafters like you! As well as selling everything a knitter could need: yarn, needles, books, buttons and accessories, we have patterns from 1000s of designers and a community platform for you to share your latest makes! Don’t worry if you’ve never knitted before, we have how-to guides to get you started. We also have tons of free knitting patterns in our pattern library for you to browse and find inspiration for your next, or first, knitting project.

Why not use your winning yarn from this crafty competition and our new knitting calculator to knit a cosy Christmas gift? Whether you’re a knitting novice or purling pro, it calculates how long it will take you to knit a whole bunch of different festive projects. 

You can even work out how long it’ll take you to make these adorable handmade knitted stockings. These are a great addition to the fireplace that your kids will adore (especially after Father Christmas has visited!).

Or perhaps you’d rather make some Christmas tree decorations? These are great because they will last forever and can be passed down through the family. Handmade decorations instantly add a homely feel to any room.

Wrap up warm in your own hand knitted creation with this striped throw. This blanket pattern is designed for beginner knitters and will be the perfect snuggly gift for the colder months.

How to enter? Enter here before 2nd September to be in the chance of winning 10 balls of Paintbox Chunky yarn so you can start crafting your Christmas knits!
