What are you going to knit today? If you’re in the same boat as I am, you’ve been working on the same sweater for over a month.
If you’re feeling frustrated with a project that’s taking way too long, step away from it for a while. Instead, try one of these make-in-a-day knitting patterns!
Brooklyn Boot Liners Kit
These boot liners are deceptively quick, since the liner only covers the top of your boot. Plus, most of the boot liners are knit in stockinette stitch, so the only part that might take a bit longer is the beautiful top border.Get the Brooklyn Boot Liners kit here.
Woodsie Way Mitts Kit
Sure, there are two of ’em, but the stitching is so simple that you’ll finish in a flash. This pattern is for intermediate knitters, so beginners might need a bit longer than a day to finish.Get the Woodsie Way Mitts kit here.

The question is not whether you can make this in a day. The question is: How many of these can you make in a day? If you can knit an I-cord, then you can knit these pretty, stack-able cuffs. Knit them in a mix ‘n match color palette, or keep them all the same hue. No matter what, it’s a great way to use up scraps.Get the Mudra Cuff pattern here.
