If you think “free and easy” knitting is limited to stockings, we have a surprise for you – 14 surprises! Free is modern and easy can be exciting, as you will see in these knit patterns for clothing, accessories, home decor, baby clothes and more.
All these patterns are easy for beginners to follow (and you will look like an expert!). Advanced knitters will find relaxing projects here that you can knit while watching TV or talking to friends.
1. TOUT BOUTONNÉ LEG WARMERS
These chic leg warmers are knit flat in one piece and then sewn together. Ribbed cuffs on the calf (hidden under the cuff and at the ankle) ensure a perfect fit. The buttons are decorative, meaning you do not have to knit buttonholes. You only need to know the round stitch, the ribbing and the waffle engraving. This is a simple combination of knit and knit stitches, which you can get to know in our FREE guide “Knitted stitches you need to know”.
2. Baby Bunnies
This tiny bunny couple is all dressed up for Easter. The pattern includes instructions for the bunnies, clothing, carrot, basket and eggs.
3. BAMBOO SPRING GARDEN TEE
This top is perfect for layering under a cardigan or over a long-sleeved top – and perfect for your first sweater project. The back and sleeves are made up of simple, smoothly knitted, rectangular rectangles without shapes. The front is also flat knit and has only a little shape at the neck. There are clear instructions to move the collar stitches to a stitch holder and to knit the shoulders separately. There are no stitches required! Be sure to choose a high-quality DK yarn that is well draped to make the most of this simple blouse design.
4. PUFF BOWL-Y
This bowl is knitted with a recycled cloth. In the instructions you will learn how to make yarn out of yarns and then knit the bowl round. This is a great first pattern to learn how to knit in the round with two round needles.
5. SMART PHONE CASE
With this stylish protective case, your phone looks great. The dimensions of 4½ “x 2¼” are suitable for most phones. The pattern is processed in simple saatstichen from handy weight yarn. At the end of the rows stitches are made to form the flaps, which are then folded and lined to construct the box. Ideal for gifts, the suitcase can also be used as a small clutch.
