I think most of us have a limited budget. A pattern has to be really special or I have to have a special reason for needing it before I pay money for it. So I am always looking for free patterns to try. Today I thought I would share some of the places I find free patterns.
A great place to start is with companies that make and sell yarn. Here are some that I have found.
Crystal Palace yarns http://www.straw.com/cpy/free_patterns.html
Yarn market lists a lot of yarn companies that I didn’t know about and gives you links to their free patterns. http://www.yarnmarket.com/knitting/Free-Patterns-527.html?CFID=15256215&CFTOKEN=57588291
Blogs are another place to find some great patterns. There are usually a few free patterns mixed in with others that you can buy. Sometimes you will even find a tutorial which I consider a bonus! 🙂 In my next post I will share some blogs that have free patterns. If you have a great place to find free patterns I’d love to hear about it!!
