Free knitting and crochet patterns
Knitting and crochet is a great way to pass the time when it’s winter and you’re stuck indoors.
It offers the opportunity to get creative, is relaxed and can be done while listening to the radio or watching tv.
If you’re in the mood to take on a new project, here’s some free knitting and crochet patterns we’ve been admiring lately.
This lovely long cardigan is a great project for winter, and can even be used as an outer layer this spring and summer as the weather improves. Find instructions for this free knitting pattern from the Prima website.
Keep your family pet warm with this adorable dog sweater. The free pattern is available to download here.
