From making huge oversized sweaters to dressing for the autumn weather, reader’s can’t seem to get enough!
Also popular are dog sweater knitting patterns, from puppy sweaters to holiday sweaters.
It makes me so happy that so many of you have been visiting to take a look around and enjoy the free patterns.
I enjoy being able to give to you so many free patterns to make and enjoy.
As a knitting and crochet designer, it is interesting for me to plan my next creations for my reader’s and not only because I want to make something.
It helps me to plan my patterns and to get ideas for future projects.
Currently, my WIP’s are kinda getting out of hand!
I have to keep buying baskets to put them all in and categorise so that I can find them easily and go back to them.
From blankets, cardigans and sweaters, it makes me happy to always have something on the needles.
The only problem is – sometimes I run out of needles or cables!
I bought a set of interchangeable needles and cables, which helps so much when you have so many projects on the go at once.
I can easily switch out my needles and cables for new projects.
If you are new to knitting or want a skills refresher then taking a look at this post – knitting for beginners is a great idea.
Things you should know before starting any of the patterns below;
- You should be comfortable casting on and casting off, as well as knitting in garter stitch.
- You should also know how to purl – as this is a commonly used stitch.
- You will also need to know the basics of increasing and decreasing.
- You should also be comfortable reading a knitting pattern.
- And understanding knitting abbreviations and terms.
- You should also know your own skill level – which can be helpful when choosing a pattern.
