Free Knitting Patterns – 15 Websites

15 Knitting Websites for Free Knitting Patterns

Have you noticed? Knitting is all the rage again. No longer seen just as “Grandma’s” hobby, knitting has gone mainstream and become a chic needle craft no matter what your age or walk of life.

Not only that but we are now knitting more than just scarves and sweaters. Have you seen some of the extreme knits using giant knitting needles? An afghan knitted with huge needles is definitely on my to-do list.

And with all of this knitting comes the need for lots and lots of patterns. Fortunately, there are a bunch of knitting websites offering free knitting patterns for every project imaginable from baby hats, scarves, gloves and sweaters to shawls, wraps and knit boot cuffs.

Many of these sites also offer knitting instructions, how-to knit videos and knitting ideas. You may even be able to find free crochet Patterns.
