DIY Knit Accessories for the Perfect Go-To Gift on a Budget

Finding the perfect gift should be a fun experience but can often feel more like a stressful endeavour. When holidays and birthdays seem to follow one after the other, gift fatigue of trying to come up with new ideas can become a real drag. Especially when overpriced gift costs start to pile up over time. Before resorting to gift cards or buying anything just to get something to give, try a more personal and cost friendly approach with a DIY knit accessory instead. 

Whether you have beginner or advanced knitting skills, there are plenty of simple patterns that are sure to make the perfect gift for anyone on your list. Best of all, skip the trip to the craft store because there is no need to leave home in search of knitting supplies to get started. That means you get to take care of the entire gift making process from the comfort of home! 

Gifting will go from hectic to easy breezy because Yarnspirations has everything you need, from a variety of beautiful yarns to the necessary tools, to get started on the perfect DIY knit gift. Make the hardest part about figuring out your next gift deciding which stitch to try, like choosing from: 

  • Knit stitch
  • Garter stitch 
  • Stockinette stitch
  • Rib stitch
  • Cable stitch, or even 
  • Basket weave stitch

Now without further ado, let’s get into some of the different options for DIY knit accessories that will make the perfect, budget friendly, go-to gift for any occasion.  

Knit Scarf

The perfect idea for those that are new to knitting is to keep it simple, like making a knit scarf. Personalize the gift by choosing a color, or colors, the recipient will love and then pick a stitching style to bring the idea to life, like a basic knit stitch. 

Knit Beanie 

A more seasonal gift choice, a knit beanie is the perfect gift to warm up any winter gift giving scenario. There are also many different ways to personalize a knit beanie, so no two gifts are the same, such as:

  • Using different stitch styles for each beanie 
  • Adding a beaded or ribbon lining around the rim 
  • Making crochet flowers to sew on 

Knit Jewelry 

Make something that is sure to be pleasantly unexpected by gifting stunning, unique knit jewelry. Keep it extra simple but just as beautiful and try the finger-knitting technique to create a one-of-a-kind necklace. For anyone looking to kick it up a notch, take two knit strips to make a gorgeous cable knit necklace and perhaps even a bracelet to match! Keep color choices neutral so the recipient can show off their new knit jewelry with any outfit. 

Knit Shoulder Bag

For those more experienced in knitting, give a gift that will also show off your skill by making a knit shoulder bag. Get creative with colors and stitch technique, and perhaps include a button closure, to make a bag special to the recipient’s unique style

Make gifting fun again and pick which DIY knit accessory to try for your next budget friendly gift idea!
