But you know how it is - I have WAY more knitting patterns saved or bookmarked on my computer than I could ever hope to knit. If only I didn't have to sleep! Imagine if you could spend all those hours knitting!
But if I stay up too late knitting, I just do this. And then I drop stitches and it is a mess!
So, on to some freebies!
Superior Waves Shawl by Willow Yarns.
Love the feather and fan pattern. But must admit to being daunted by the instruction to cast on 589 stitches! I prefer shawls that start with a small number and work outwards. Not sure why it feels like less work that way, but it does to me.
Love Knitting have tons of free patterns. And they are a great yarn shop too. Some of my favourites from here:
Pax the Alpaca
Owl Sweater - owls are always cute. This is sized from newborn to 18 months.
Tiny Baby in a Basket. Oh my, this is SO cute. The basket is only 9cm long and the baby only 5cm. Little girls love little toys and the designer of this freebie has some gorgeous patterns for dolls and rabbits of all sizes.
Easter potholder - Easter will be here soon! Although this looks too lovely to use as a potholder!
Hot water bottle cover - This looks so warm and cosy, knitted in a bulky yarn. Maybe hot water bottles (hotties!) are a bit old-fashioned, but we love them here. Do you still use one?
Sally the Eco Fairy
Hobbit Cottage tea cosy - thought I needed a tea cosy or two, just for fun!
Mrs Bunny Rabbit tea cosy
And last but definitely not least, if you have not checked out Frankie's Knitted Stuff on Ravelry, you are in for a treat! All the patterns are free, for the below reason:
All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease.
I just love the knitted wreaths.
And any of the knitted wreath components can be used as embellishments, toys, anything you like.
Hope you enjoy just a few of the many free knitting patterns around the internet. It really is a neverending treasure trove!
