The Internet is full of free knitting patterns offered by various designers and knitting publications. But they can be hard to find, and sometimes it's difficult to compare patterns and select the one that's best suited for your needs, your knitting skills and the yarn and needles that you have available. The mission of Knitting Patterns Galore is to make a searchable database of free knitting patterns from around the web.
Are you a designer offering free knitting patterns? Or perhaps you just have a freely available knitting pattern that you really like? You can submit the pattern to our directory. It's a great way to increase publicity and traffic.
If you are also interested in crochet, we have a sister site - Crochet Patterns Galore!
The Ambition and Cunning Shawl is our featured pattern of the week. It's a very original-looking pattern. The shawl has a relatively straightforward triangular shape, but the intricate lace motif follows some decidedly unconventional curves. This is definitely a project for a more advanced knitter!
