Free Knitting Patterns for Kids
This pattern book includes five patterns for kids of all ages, from babies to tweens. Knit up a few too-cute hats or even a cardigan that’s the perfect spring layering piece. Since baby clothing and accessories are small, you might even already have enough yarn in your stash to knit up one of the patterns. Don’t forget to check the care instructions before you get started — machine washable yarns are the way to go when you’re knitting for unpredictable kiddos!
Free Knit Shawl Patterns
Knit shawls are a great way to experiment with new skills and stitches. Plus, a shawl is an accessory that you can wear year-round. There are shawls for every knitting level in this collection — as long as you’re familiar with increasing and decreasing, you’ll have no problem finding a pattern to match your skill set. Some of the patterns are repetitive, so you’ll quickly memorize the repeat and won’t have to constantly refer to charts or written instructions.
MORE Free Knit Shawl Patterns
We couldn’t stop at just one shawl eBook! This pattern collection features eight more beautiful free shawl patterns. Like the first shawl pattern book, this one features shawls for every skill level. The green Mezquita Shawl by Zen Yarn Garden, for example, features a plain stockinette body with a lacy edge. It’s perfect for knitters who want to dip their toes into lace knitting without committing to a full-on lace shawl like the red Grouchy Geisha shawl by Maiden Brooklyn.
Free Knit Scarves Pattern Book
Get cozy with four free scarf patterns! No matter what season you’re knitting for, this pattern collection has you covered. This is the ideal eBook for beginners who want to move on from plain rectangular garter stitch scarves, but it’s also great for seasoned knitters who are looking for new and interesting gift ideas. Each pattern offers plenty of room for customization, whether you’re experimenting with color or a new fiber you haven’t worked with before.
Free Knit Accessories Pattern
This eBook features six accessories that all make great gifts for your friends. Of course, we can’t blame you if you knit them up for yourself first! From bags to hats and gloves, most of the patterns are small enough that you can use up some of your yarn stash to stitch them. You may even want to experiment with new fibers. For example, the To Market bag by Fiber Dreams is designed to be sturdy and durable, so it’s a great opportunity to try out a cotton yarn or even an unconventional fiber like jute.
