My favorite free knitting patterns from the Interwebs

Pin It

Since I'm sure everyone got knitting gift cards and such for Christmas or made "learn to knit" their top #1 New Year's Resolution just above "read scriptures every day" and "start doing yoga for real" (or maybe those are just mine), I have something for you.

Here are a bunch of my favorite free knitting patterns. So when you've got the basics down and are ready to start your first cool project, here are some ideas to get excited about. I have either made these or I want to make these. Some patterns are on people's blogs or websites, others are available as free downloads through Ravelry. (One more reason to sign up for Ravelry, friends!)

Oh my heck those baby booties are, as you might put it, making my ovaries scream. I am so tempted to make those my signature thing that I make for everyone else's babies. And maybe a pair for my own, depending on how many more I have.

Unfortunately, I don't understand a lot of the terminology in the pattern. You wouldn't want to have a "date" where you teach me how to make those, would you? I'd provide sweets but not brie because I'm a heathen who doesn't like cheese.

I made Baby Sophisticate over the summer in this great navy tweed and gave it to my best friend's little baby who lives in Minnesota now and needs toasty sweaters. He's such a cute little man in it!

Right now I'm making two Little Coffee Bean Cardigans for a friend's twin boys: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-coffee-bean-cardigan. I finished one over vacation (except for buttons) and started the second on the plan home. I did one in charcoal and teal stripes and am doing the second in charcoal and eggplant stripes. So cute!

(Oh, also, I made the stripes 4 rows instead of 2 because I didn't want to switch colors that often)

That would be PLANE home.

Brinestone, I would need to learn how to make them first! I started a pair a couple of years ago and then abandoned them! Also, you don't like CHEESE???? That's kind of altering my world-view a bit. But hey! Sweets are good!

Kelly, I love Little Coffee Bean! I wondered if the thin stripes would be a pain--your modification sounds smart.
