Free for a Limited Time Knitting Patterns

by | Jan 11, 2018 | Featured

These patterns are free for a short time only! Get them now or you will have to purchase from the designers.

Do NOT contact me to get the patterns – follow the links.

I’m trying something new and hope I don’t regret it. These are wonderful patterns the designers have generously made free for a month or so. Please do not ask me to provide the pattern after the time has expired.

To get the knitting patterns, scroll down the page to the individual pattern you want and click on the link to that pattern.

These patterns are not my designs but links to other designers who have generously shared their patterns. If you have questions about how to knit a specific pattern, please contact the designer directly.

All links on this site are for informational purposes, but please note that some links are to affiliate sellers that pay me a small commission on purchases.
