I wanted to put together a free eBook with patterns just for women. Knitting for women is such a wide-open topic, so I've chosen patterns from all walks
of knitting life. Our new eBook is called 5 Free Knitting Patterns for Women: Designs for a Knitted Skirt, Shawl and Knit Tops for Women.

Armfield designed the Casual Flair Cardigan
with both comfort and style
in mind; she's beyond putting up with uncomfortable clothes for the sake of
fashion, but doesn't want to look frumpy, either. She wants her weekend
clothing to be stylish and flattering as well as comfortable: The
cotton/silk/wool blend gives warmth without a lot of weight, and the lines work
with skirts or jeans.
Rebecca Daniels lives in cardigans; they're her favorite things to wear. When
asked to design a staple piece of weekend clothing, she knew it had to be a
cardigan. She designed something simple and easy to wear. The Tweed Cardigan
is easy to knit, with no seams but a bit of waist shaping that doubles as a
tailored back detail.
the Thórdís shawl, the original of this traditional Icelandic shawl is part of
the Icelandic Craft Council's collection of textiles. It is thought to have
been knitted by Thórdís Egilsdóttir, a resident of a small fishing village on
the west coast of Iceland and well known for her craftsmanship and skill with
handspun yarns. The Icelandic
which captures the spirit of the original Thórdís shawl, was designed by
Icelandic knitter Sigrídur Halldórsdóttir.
Ivy Bigelow's Flirty Skirty
is knitted in the round from the waist down,
featuring pleats at the hem and belt loops at the waist. The wool tape yarn has
a surprising amount of stretch that will accommodate a variety of body shapes.
Carrie Bostick Hoge's Lace Nighty
is a "for your eyes only" sort of
pattern. Knitted in the alluring, silky comfort of bamboo yarn, this nightie will
make you want to light some candles, turn on some smooth jazz, and snuggle up
with your honey.
