Free Knitting Patterns

In 2021, I drafted several knitting patterns that had been available for purchase on my Etsy Shop.  Now that it's closed, I've decided to offer all my patterns for free.  Happy knitting!

You can find the links here:

Each of these is made with either a single or double strand of laceweight yarn.

Basic Beanie and Matching Cowl - want to create the look of high end hand painted yarn? Laceweight mohair and silk yarn, especially the handpainted or variegated kind, can be carried along with a DK weight yarn to create beautiful color gradations. I used budget friendly Patons Classic DK Superwash Wool (Wisteria) and Sugar Bush Drizzle (Periwinkle) that I bought on sale to create a high end look.

Barnacle Slouch - this pattern uses Dk wool and a laceweight mohair/silk together to create the same delicious colors as in the Basic Beanie and Matching Cowl.

One Ball Wonders: Barnacle Wrist Warmers and Short Cowl  Each of these projects uses a minimal amount of yarn, making them great stash busters.  

The Manos del Uruguay was bought from a fellow knitter who was de-stashing, so I got a bargain.  If you haven't discovered the buy and sell option on Ravelry yet, I encourage you to check it out.  Also, Facebook Marketplace (under Arts and Crafts) will also yield some treasure from time to time too.

Decided to get my inner princess on in honor of birthday and make something pretty for myself. Enter the Barnacle Fingerless Gloves! 

Made with two strands of laceweight yarn (38g in total used for mine), this was a fairly quick and decadent project.  The mock cable ribbing is very forgiving so I used the same number of stitches throughout. These are easy to size up or down.

This could also be a stash buster project as they can be made shorter, or using a base color and picking out secondary strands from your scrap stash of partial balls.

The Knitter's Kozy is an improvised pattern based on the wonderful shawl geometry of Holly Chayes.  I was looking for something to use up some yarn from previous sweater projects and came across Holly's second book.  The Octagon Donut shawl was my inspiration.

This is a simple top-down knit. I used a narrow band of mock cable for the neckband and a wider one for the edging.  If you've been using my knitting patterns then you already know this one. The rest is straightforward knitting with regular increase rounds.

You will need to take some body measurements and knit a swatch as this information is needed to calculate your cast on stitch number and desired finished measurements.

I knit it over several evenings.  It is a great stash buster project and would make a lovely gift.
