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. I wanted to knit items I would actually use or give away, but I didn’t think I could create those unless I knew all the stitches and advanced knitting techniques.
If you’re a beginner knitter and need some easy patterns to start out with, this list is for you. You also might be an experienced knitter that just wants an easier pattern for some mindless knitting.
The following 25 patterns don’t involve much more than knit and purl stitches. Some require you to knit in the round or do simple increases and decreases. They all leave you with a beautiful knitting creation and best of all, these patterns are all available for free! (Some are from Ravelry, so you’ll need a free account there to access them.)
For each pattern, I included some of the skills you’ll need and where to find the pattern. If you like this list and find it helpful, I’d love to create more. What patterns would you like to see?
