Free knitting patterns


It all starts with a simple-knit scarf, but why not try these free knitting patterns? Perfect for beginners, or a quick-fix for advanced knitters

We’ve been celebrating knits this week with moodboards, a how to knit video plus a competition with Purl Soho – well, it’s knitting week after all! Now there are free knitting patterns, too! Shh… hear that? Must be the clickety-clack of your knitting needles and cheering yarn selection.

The Purl Bee has heaps of lovely knitting projects on offer and this easy-knit lap blanket is a top tutorial for beginners. They’re also giving away a Learn to Knit kit: find out more about the competition here.
