New Free eBook! Knitting Instructions: Seven Free Knitting Patterns for Knitting Accessories

Dec 18, 2009


Today on Knitting Daily we're debuting our new free eBook, Knitting Instructions: 7 Free Knitting Patterns for Knitting Accessories!

I'm excited about this free knitting pattern collection because I love knitting accessories! It's great to have a smaller project on the needles so you can get a break from your big sweater or afghan project, or perhaps you like accessory knitting patterns best--either way, this is the collection of free knitting patterns for you!

These seven must-have accessory knitting patterns include:

Cabled Leggings by Ann Budd: Not your standard 80s legwarmers, these stylish beauties are perfect for wearing with tights, a skirt, and some funky shoes.

Cable Rib Socks by yours truly: Developed for my LYS Sock Club, this sock pattern is easy and quick to knit. The design works equally well with variegated yarn and solid yarn.

Boom Bag by Kate Kuckro: This bag is super cool and fun to knit—you get to take the scissors to your felted bag!

Snowball Hat by Katie Himmelberg: We all need a cute knitted hat in our accessory wardrobe, and this one fits the bill perfectly.

The Crumpet Beret by Maura Kirk: This one-skein wonder is also interesting to knit, and the perfect gift accessory.

The Spectrum Scarf by Eunny Jang: With just a one-row lace repeat, you can whip out this scarf while watching your favorite movies.

The Lace Scarf by Lene Home Samsøe: This beautiful, feminine scarf is an heirloom-quality project.

This collection of free knitting patterns will keep you busy throughout the winter, practicing  your skills on a small scale and  perhaps challenging yourself a little here and there! And in today's economy, we could all use a couple of one- or two-skein projects, right? You can “shop your stash” to find yarn for many of these knitting patterns.

So download your free eBook now and get knitting!

Have fun with these projects!

I second the commenters saying that the eBook linked here for download is NOT the eBook described above. I had started The Lace Scarf  from the magazine but misplaced the pattern (thinking it wasn't a big deal since it was online for free). However now it isn't there and now I'm in a bind. Very frustrating

Came here looking for Kathleen's Cable Rib Socks.  When I clicked on the download, it was a different book.  This is frustrating!

Okay, I am the first to admit that I am NOT a great knitter. I'm left-handed (which doesn't seem to be a great asset for interpreting knitting instructions), and I don't knit on a relatively regular basis -- wish this wasn't the case, but it's true. If I get to pick up the needles once every two months for a small project, I'm lucky. Anyway, I downloaded the latest e-book and set out to knit the Spectrum Scarf. If nothing else, I can knit, purl, and yarn over pretty good, so I figured I was okay to try this project. Right away, I knew I was having trouble. I can't get the seemingly simple pattern stitch to work. I think I had it going for about a row and half, but that may have been what I thought were mistakes I was making! I ripped my futile efforts out and started again. Second effort was even worse -- nothing right at all this time. It seems that there are too many stitches between the YO's that form the lacework portion of the pattern -- instead of YO's being "connected" like the photo demonstrates, my little holes have essentially a rather raggedy stitch between them, both vertically and horizontally. Any ideas from the experts? I have the exact number of stitches on my needle, and I'm not coming up short of with one too many after I finish a row. Please help!
