Knitting has become the New Cool and now thousands of women, of all ages, across the world are knitting away in chic coffee shops and nattering to their mates. The best part about knitting is that you can make all your own clothes for baby (and you, and dad – or you could be a knitting dad) while having fun. However, knitting patterns can be quite costly so these freebies will make all knotty knitters mad with glee.
The way it works is simple, just register and start your own Ravelry section. Once you’re in just search for the kind of pattern you want i.e. baby blanket, hat, bag, jersey, and hundreds will pop up. The free patterns have a big shiny red FREE written beside them.
The site is a knitter’s paradise for plenty of other reasons too. You can keep a tally of your wool stash, find patterns for a particular type of wool, get advice from other knitters when you’re stuck and keep track of where you’re at in a particular piece of work. I love it there and hope to see you soon.
