There are so many generous designers, not to mention yarn companies, that post free knitting patterns. My favorite free pattern aggregator is Knitting Pattern Central. I also subscribe to a variety of yarn company and knitting magazine newsletters that also share patterns. Here are the patterns that I downloaded this week:
• Gingko Shoulderette Shawl at Fragrant Heart Creations. A delicate triangular shawl with just a touch of leafy lace at the edges.
• Astra – Lace Collared Cardigan from Patons Yarns. I don’t like the construction or ruffle, but I am interested in making a long lean cardi, so I want to check it out.
• Pressed Flower Mitts by Meredith Ramirez at A Knitting Blog. Pretty, pretty, pretty.
• Lacy Ruffle Cardigan from Rowan (photo above). I want a Kid Silk Haze sweater. I ‘m not sure I want this one, tho. Does the model look odd to you? Something’s off there, no?
