25 Free Beginner Knitting Patterns
Take a second and think back to when you first started knitting. Were you intimidated by difficult techniques? Was it hard to find patterns at your skill level? Did you want a list of beginner knitting patterns? Preferably free beginner knitting patterns? I remember being frustrated by all the terms and techniques. If you’re a beginner knitter and need some easy patterns to start out with, this list is for you. The following 25 patterns don’t involve much more than knit and purl stitches. For each pattern, I included some of the skills you’ll need and where to find the pattern.
