1. Ballband dishcloth
Cute, simple, useful, portable and instant gratification -- what more could you want from a knitting pattern? Make a few for yourself, for gifts and for stocking stuffers -- they make fabulous face cloths, too.

2. Quick and easy knitted pullover
The title says it all – this blogger even made it in a day!

3. Knit a toy monkey
Every home – and every child – needs a handknitted stuffed animal, and Tucker the Monkey has been a big favourite among our readers.

4. Knit a Harry Potter sweater
This basic pattern comes in sizes from toddler to adult and is fairly easy to knit. Any Harry Potter fan would be proud to wear it!

5. Easy-knit afghan
This colourful blanket is made of 72 garter stitch squares, making it easy, quick and portable. A great gift idea!

6. Cosy zippered jacket
Another quick and easy project, this one comes in sizes up to XXL.

7. Chunky cabled cardigan
This stylish jacket-style cardigan is knit from superbulky yarn, making it a quick project.

8. Knit and felt a patchwork rug
If you've never tried felting your knitting (a process technically known as fulling), this project is a great place to start – and you'll end up with a practical, colourful rug.

9. Cosy knitted hand/wrist warmers
Made from a luxurious cashmere-blend yarn, these hand/wrist warmers are quick to knit and make a lovely gift. Use double-pointed needles if you don't have the right circulars handy.

10. Knitted patchwork quilt
This gorgeous quilt makes a delightful baby blanket, perfect for a baby shower gift.
