5 DIY Knitting projects for Mother’s Day

Despite the weather getting better, I’d like to share with all of you some easy knitting projects that would be a perfect gift for mother’s day.

It’s that time of the year again where mother’s day is around the corner. Almost one week for the 6th of March… you better start thinking about your mama’s present if you haven’t done it yet.

Here you have 3 easy DIY knitting projects for Mother’s Day that will take you less than a week to make and your mum will love :-)

Knitting Projects for Mother's Day

1.    Warm Scarf

To make a knitted scarf you only need to learn how to cast on and purl. Scarfs are one of the easiest knitting projects and it’s perfect for beginners.

2.    Fingerless gloves

These are very handy as they allow you to type on your phone without having to take them off, look for things on your handbag and while warming your hands up.

5.    Hat

This is the most difficult project out of the 5, but if you know how to knit the basic stitches (knit and purl) and how to decrease, I’d definitely give it a go.
