Free Knitting Patterns

April 21, 2010

Do you enjoy knitting?  I woman knittinghave a bit of a love/hate relationship with that particular art.  I have mostly taught myself with a little “How To” I got on sale at Joann Fabrics, but I can hardly say I’m good at it.  I borrowed a round loom from a friend and (with a little help) successfully made a hat.  It had a rim and everything – I was overjoyed!  I was then able to teach both my daughter and my mom to make scarves on their looms which was a neat experience – all 3 of knitting together on the couch.

Now, I realize some might be of the impression that using a loom is “cheating”, but I would challenge them that it is a good starting point for someone (like me) who was terrified of attempting to learn this new craft.  As I’ve learned and searched for help, I’ve discovered a couple of free knitting resources that may of use to you knitters.

Free Knitting Patterns

There is something terribly rewarding about using the hands you were blessed with to create a usable item out of a long piece of string.

Are you a knitter?  Do you want to be?  If you could knit anything for anybody, what would it be?
