Last Minute Teachers Gifts, Anyone? 

It’s about 3 weeks until the end of term here (I think? I am actually hiding from the calendar, because I’m not sure how I will work throughout the summer holidays).
I have left it very late to start a teachers gift, but last night I suddenly decided on a knitted cowl for playground duty. Possibly ambitious, since I also recently started writing another sock patter; but that might have to wait.

Anyway, I thought I would pick some quick patterns from Rav for you to take a look at. Having seen many teachers comments that mug cozies are never going to get used, I won’t include those! You probably know the drill by now, first I will do knit patterns, then crochet patterns. Click on headings for patterns.

Quick Little Snail!

This pattern by Amalia Samios would make a lovely addition to a primary teacher’s desk! It looks super simple to make too.

GAP-tastic cowl

Teacher friends have told me that winter woollies are always well received, because of the dreaded playground duty! I know you will be giving the gift in July, but it can be put aside for the beginning of the next term! If you are making winter wear, don’t forget to add washing instructions!

Quick N Easy Floor Cushion

I thought these were an amazing idea for a reception teacher. They might be spending a bit of time on “the carpet” reading to the kids or talking to them. This saves their bottom! I’m not sure what goes on in schools now, but I remember my primary school teacher spending time with us on the floor and getting down to our level. Pattern by Erica Harbin.

Tie Me Up

I thought this was quite amusing. If your child has a male teacher (Or a female teacher who likes to wear ties!), they may find this fun. Pattern by Bernat Design Studio.

Everly Head Wrap

When autumn rolls around and the teachers are asked to patrol the playground, I am sure they would be grateful these ear warmers! Pattern by Mamachee

Fan Bookmark

Pretty much all teachers read, right? Even if it’s work related! OK so this uses thin yarn and small hooks, but it’s pretty small and I reckon it could be worked up quick enough. Pattern by Crochetroo

Louise Wrap

This uses super bulky/chunky yarn, so it will work up nice and quick. I think it’s pretty unisex. And just look at it! It’s gorgeous!! Pattern by Alexandra Tavel

Skinny Neck Tie

Because I included a knit neck tie, I had to do a crochet one too! I searched Rav for the best looking pattern, and this, in my opinion, is it. Go on!! You know you want to! Pattern by Suvi
