Free Knitting and Crochet Patterns

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.

YARN COMPANIES

A great place to start is with companies that make and sell yarn.  Here are some that I have found.

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

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!!

  1. I’m just taking up knitting after college, and this is sure to be a big help. I learn better with a project to apply new stitches to. And besides that, I’m too dang poor for a store-bought pattern, heh. Thanks for the help!
