If there’s one thing for sure, it’s winter is coming and you’re going to need a scarf. And not only that, but also a comfortable cap, sweater and socks. While purchasing these items is always an option, it’s a lot more fun to create your own. The knitting community has exploded in popularity over the past two decades, and with social media, people are sharing their fiber designs as well as the patterns they used to make them. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in this profession to learn on their own.
Knitting patterns are the best way to hone your skills. Depending on what you create, they use techniques ranging from basis points at most complicated intarsia in the ultimate test: making socks. The conventional wisdom of knitting is that if you can produce a toe and a heel, you can conquer any design that comes your way.
Sifting through paid and free knitting patterns can take forever (so many choices!), So we’ve read it for you and picked out some of our favorites. They vary in skills and applications, but whether you’re a beginner or have spent hundreds of hours tossing and launching, you’re sure to find something that piques your interest.
