When learning how to knit or crochet you need to learn how to read patterns to come up with great gift ideas. That's where Creativebug comes in handy. They have a bunch of holiday projects to crochet or knit featuring gifts for everyone on your list. From knit dishcloths to cowls, hats and more projects all you do is join Creativebug for free to receive free access to over 500 plus online classes that will teach how to make these projects. If you decide to join you will continue to have access to new and inspirational classes for only $4.95 a month which is cheaper than some patterns. I would say sign up for the free 30 trial just to get a few of the great projects that you can make for the holiday season.
