Quick Mothers Day Knit and Crochet Gift Ideas

Today I’d like to share some quick knit and crochet projects that could work as awesome Mothers Day gifts.   I just love anything my daughter makes me, so I just know your mama would love something made by you.

Some of my favorite crochet and knit gift ideas are:

  • Shawls
  • Blankets
  • Coffee cozies paired with gift cards
  • Spa items like washcloths
  • Bags and purses
  • A plant “cozy” or plant hanger
  • Hot pads paired with some extra fun kitchen items
A beautiful gift, but this one takes time!

Here are some Mothers Day knitting and crocheting ideas and inspiration if you’re trying to come up with a gift!

Knitting and Crochet Gifts for Mothers Day

  1.  Sedona Serenity Shawl Knitting Pattern – This knitting pattern is easy enough for a beginner and it’s made with a color changing yarn that has a soft, incredible texture (Lion Brand Homespun)  It can be used as a small throw blanket or a shawl and works up super fast on large knitting needles.  You can also sub and bulky or super bulky yarn in this pattern! Mama will love that it’s so soft and cuddly!
  2. Agape Wrap Crochet Pattern – Named after “love”, this wrap is quick and beautiful to make! Use the super soft cotton from the pattern, or whatever yarn your mama will love.
  3. Prettiest Washcloth Crochet Pattern – Buy Mama some soap, bath salts, essential oils and throw in some handmade washcloths.  A few more washcloth patterns I love are the Little Clusters Dishcloth,  Farm House Washcloths, the Textured Hostess Washcloth Pattern
  4. Sunshine Knit Washcloth – if you’re a knitter, this is a pretty washcloth pattern that uses the beautiful seed stitch.  I love the bright, cheery color for this time of year. 
  5. Manhattan Market Tote – Moms are always hauling things around, so your mama can definitely use this sturdy tote.
  6. Lil’ Mountains Pouch – My purse is a black hole where things go in and can never be found. Hehe! I love this clutch as it helps you stay organized. It will hold your mama’s lipstick, medications, credit cards and anything else that she might not want to lose in her purse. 
  7. The Wanders Wrap – This piece is light to wear and perfect for Mama! She can wear it to church or with her casual day out with friends. 
  8. Winding Cables Knit Wrap – This is the ultimate gift as it’s made with high-end wool alpaca and features beautiful, winding cables.  It’s fun to knit and it works up fairly quickly since it’s made with super bulky yarn and large knitting needles. 
  9. Quick & Cuddly Knit Throw Blanket – Pick your mom’s favorite colors and knit this blanket up in a flash on giant needles. It’s like a hug for mom whenever she uses it!
  10. Knit Coffee Cozy – This little cozy would pair perfectly with a Starbucks cup and gift card! 

11. Cosmos Knit Wrap Pattern – Impress mama with your knitting skills with this textured, super soft and comfy shawl! It takes a little more time than the other options, but it’s so special.

12. Crochet Coffee Cup Cozy – Another option to shower your mom with coffee and crochet. Grab her a gift card to starbucks, a sweet hand written card, and some fresh coffee beans if she’s a coffee lover!

13. Isla Scalloped Shawl Crochet Pattern

  1. Lovely gift ideas for mothers. A wearable/useful gift is a good idea in any situation. Many of the patterns are suitable for newbies. Not much yarn is needed, so they are affordable for children, too. I like the hippie granny shawl in muted colors. It reminds me of my youth but is totally wearable in my current life. The granny motif is like hidden, not so obvious. But it’s there. I’m not a mother. Maybe I’m going to make one for myself?

  2. The coffee cup cozies are so pretty and useful. I don’t like having my coffee from this type of cups. My hands get too hot. I have a reusable Starbuck’s cup. It really needs a sweater, as do my hands.

  3. Thank you Jessica for all the wonderful things you share. Keeping you
    all in my prayers and that your little sweet pea is better!

  4. I look forward to every post from you! I can’t crochet, but I knit and have used several of your patterns. Thank you so very much for offering some free patterns. For someone like me on disability, it is delightful!!! Thank you for sharing your passion!!
