Marcy’s Musings

Hi, there! One of my customers asked if Amanda or I was ever going to put some knitting patterns on the website. Since we don’t have the software to make knitting patterns, we thought we’d simply point you in the direction of some good ones. So without further ado:

Spotlight: Knitting

Knitting Paradise Knitting and Crochet Forum offers a free weekly knitting newsletter. The newsletter covers hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet. Newsletter subscribers will also have access to a message board where they can get knitting lessons, free patterns, and the opportunity to chat with fellow knitters.

All Free Knitting – This site also offers a free newsletter as well as free knitting patterns. Patterns include afghans and blankets, gifts, holiday projects, children’s knits, and felted knits.

Free Knit – This site offers a free pattern of the day as well as a searchable database. If you’d simply like to browse, a menu offers patterns in wearables, special occasions, children’s corner, home decor, and afghans and throws.

Knitting Pattern Central – This site features an instruction directory, a knitting tutorial, and links to knitting patterns in more than fifty categories. They also include patterns that combine knitting and crochet.

Knitting on the Net – Barbara Breiter’s Knitting on the Net site features patterns for everyone from beginners to advanced knitters. Categories include dolls and toys, purses, bookmarks, slippers, scarves, mittens, afghans, ponchos, and hats.

I hope this helps!
